Andycool posted a topic in General/WindowsHello, I'm not sure if i've missed something but I've been struggling with this and cannot get anywhere! I have 2x NAS devices that store all my media - lets call them NAS1 and NAS2. I've installed MB Server on OSX, and all seems to be working ok on the server operation. I couldn't load the NASes into the library either with the 'network' search or with directly typing in the NAS network locations - so I mounted these smb shares to /mnt, and could then add those local mount points to the library locally from these loactions: ie for my TV Series: /mnt/NAS1/Video/Series and /mnt/NAS2/Video/Series. Now this is where I found some really helpful information on this forum that I could use the path substitution so that the clients (I have loaded MB Theatre on a Win7 PC) would load the media file directly from the NAS rather than streaming or transcoding through the MB server (on OSX). So I set up 2 path substitutions: ie: /mnt/NAS1/Video \\NAS1\Video /mnt/NAS2/Video \\NAS2\Video So - this is where I am stuck. I can see all the media in the library on MB Theatre on the Windows 7 PC. However when looking in the Client logs to confirm the path substitutions is working rather than streaming/transcoding from the OSX MB Server I notice this: When I have the path substitutions set to: /mnt/NAS1/Video \\NAS1\Video /mnt/NAS2/Video \\NAS2\Video Anything from NAS1 is using path substitutions and coming direct from NAS1 correctly as I would expect - but any media on NAS2 is being streamed or transcoded from the OSX machine. If I have it set in path substitutions in this order: /mnt/NAS2/Video \\NAS2\Video /mnt/NAS1/Video \\NAS1\Video Anything from NAS2 is using path substitutions and coming direct from NAS2 - but any media on NAS1 is now being streamed or transcoded from the OSX machine. How do I get both path substitutions working so the client can get the files directly from both the NASes - or is this function with multiple path substitutions on OSX for the MB server not working? Many thanks in advance!
