Hi,

hi Damien,

 

apparently the beosound does not work with all NAS software protocols.

finally I used an external hard drive, but there were also some issues.

u need an usb drive with separate power supply, because the usb connection does not provide enough power to use 2.5" hard drives.

the beosound did  read a  2.5" hard drives with external power supply, but had software crashes several times.

now a have 3.5" drive from WD and until now (3 days) no crash.

 

hope that helped a bit

Hi

 

I used to have an encore and I used it with a WD MyCloud NAS Drive

I had the same issue , but you have to rescan on the Encore

You have to get in to the service menu to do this

 

I was also given a pretty good user guide by B&O dealer which covers a few other things - PM me your email and I can scan a copy and send through

Cheers

Michael

I have just linked a ReadyNAS 102 to my BS5 Encore. It did detect it, however as I was playing around with the settings I managed to disconnect the NAS from the BS5 Encore - whereafter it din not detect the NAS.

After a restart (NOT rescan) of the Encore - the NAS was again detected.

Try a restart :-)
