Very strange :(
I agree….

At least I'm learning a few things.

Did you try entering the ip direct, instead of filling it in via browse ?
Yes. Both the IP address and the host name work if libdsm is enabled.

If libdsm is not enabled, you get into an endless username/password loop whether or not you enter a valid username/password.

I thought you were running the version in testflight ? I see "Starting MrMC (3.0-5 Git:2017-05-31-cb76894)"

Should be 'Starting MrMC (3.0-6 Git:2017-06-01-bff4edc)'

I'm not familiar with "TestFlight".

OK. Now I get it….

I'm going to be away from home for the next week, so won't have an opportunity to test SMB. If the test flight is still on when I get back I'll make a request.

The thing I like about MrMC is that I can install it, configure it a bit and it just works. End of story.

When I was using Crystalbuntu/Raspbmc/OSMC, it seemed like I was spending more time browsing forums and SSHing into crummy little computers than I was spending watching videos.

When you released MrMC I ditched the crummy little computers, bought three ATV4s and never looked back. Now, for the first time ever, my wife actually watches videos when I'm not home! A major achievement, indeed.

If you look at my forum history you'll see that I've rarely had to post a MrMC inquiry. The last few weeks have been an exception, mainly because of stupid things that I've done, for which I apologize.

Thanks.

That's what we are aiming for :) Less fiddling and more 'It just works'.

SMB handling has always been a thorn in our sides. LibSMBClient is can be twitchy, LibDSM is incomplete. Grrr. We are looking at alternatives.
