The user "Zarquon" sent me a PM asking about NASMount and requesting that I post it to the forum:

I'm either lost, confused or just drowning.

I have a TRF2400, a windows 10 PC and a NAS hanging off my router.

I have installed TAPtoDate.tap and NASmount.tap on the 2400 using filezilla.
the NAS is mapped - on the PC as \\10.0.0.105\public and has the following folders

\Movies
\Pictures
\Radio
\TV

When I connect to the 2400 from the PC and look under File Management/TAP files/autostart I can see both taps are running.

I have edited the NASmount.ini file with the following settings
Code:
NAS IP-Address=10.0.0.105
NAS MAC-Address=
Local Folder Name=NAS-Share
Remotefolder mediaFiles=/public/movies
Remotefolder MP3Files=
Remotefolder PhotoFiles=/public/pictures
Remotefolder DataFiles=
Mountoptions=-osoft,intr,tcp,rsize=65535
NAS Boottime=30
Automount=1
Ping Wait=3
Ping Gap=30
MountDelay=30
NAS Recording=0
Timerdelay=0
SilentMode=0

I start the PVR and do not see any changes anywhere in the menu system - I can't find the Local folder name anywhere and the only way i know the taps are running is to remote in from the PC.

This line is from the NASmount post

"It will mount up to four directories (one for Videos, one for Pictures, one for MP3 and one for Recording) from up to 10 NAS-Servers to the local Folders on the SRP."
  1. what is the SRP
  2. where do I find the 'Local Folders' - I've looked in every place in the Menu system
  3. I just upgraded to version 2.16 and nothing has changed.

"SRP" refers to the PVR.  This is the European model prefix, but the same TAPs will work for our "TMS" machines without modification.

Do you have the NFS protocol enabled on your NAS?

To see if a TAP is running (without using another TAP) go into the recordings list on the PVR, use the ">>" or "<<" buttons to navigate to "Program Files".  Non-running TAPs will be white, running TAPs will be green.

DeltaMikeCharlie -Thankyou for posting for me and for the 2 suggestions.

yes, the Taps are green but still cannot find NAS-Share anywhere

I did realise 1 mistake I was doing - I was using left and right on the circle button not the << or >>

now to check on NFS - will let you know

Yes, make sure your NAS supports NFS. When I first dabbled with it I used a freeware windows NFS program
which was pretty easy to get going. Then I branched out into linux. I took me a few goes but with help from
the NAS' software forum I got it running. I use the ff or rw key to navigate to the file list. It's not hidden
anywhere out of site.

Here is my Nasmount.ini,

NAS IP-Address=192.168.0.105
NAS MAC-Address=
Local Folder Name=HTPC3
Remotefolder MediaFiles=/export/Lounge
Mountoptions=-osoft,intr,tcp,rsize=65535,nolock
NAS Boottime=30
Automount=1
Ping Wait=3
Ping Gap=30
MountDelay=30
NAS Recording=0
Timerdelay=0
SilentMode=0
Logfile=1
Remotefolder MP3Files=

Here is a picture of my NAS config,

As you can see I had to add /export to the path in my .ini file. This was the key to get my setup working.

Thanks for the time spent on your reply - it would seem that I didn't have NFS running on my NAS - have started that in Windows 10 and my Blackarmor 110 NAS. I hadn't set it up before as I just mapped to it so didn't need it. Now trying to setup a user account for the topfield in the NAS but the NAS wants a password from the topfield. trying to work on that at the moment.

Once again many thanks to you and DeltaMikeCharlie

I should of added that a successful connection will be indicated by a small network icon seen in the top r/h side of your tv screen.
The icon can be greyed out indicating an issue as well. The icon will appear about 30 seconds after the tap is loaded.The icon then disappears after a few seconds.
I don’t recall ever having to set up a password. I would think if you gave the NFS shared folder the correct permissions
You wouldn’t have too?
