Mede8er 500X2 as NAS; can't connect with SSH or telnet
« on: January 27, 2016, 08:23:45 am »
Hello!
I hope I'm right in this Forum.  ::)

I want to use my Mede8er 500X2 as a NAS. The Player is an Amazon Fire TV with the KODI App.

So here my Problem:
I've connectet two external USB HDDs to the Mede8er (One with the movies and one with the series). When I start up the deviece it sometimes mixed up the order of the USBs. Sometimes the movie HDD is first and somtimes the series HDD ist first.
The Problem at mixing up the order is that I have to tell KODI the source (connectet with SMB). So in the wrong order KODI can't find the Videos.

So, in the KODI Forum they told my that there is a way if I can manipulate the UUID in /etc/fstab. But I cannot connect via SSH or Telnet. Is there an other way to the dictionarys?

Best Regards!
Petzruzzo

You can't do what tricks you can with a linux PC to the player. Even if you could telnet, you would only be changing the short term os image stored on a ram disk. On every boot that gets reloading from flash, including all the files you want to change.

Thats also why you can't do anything at the TV end either. Both are use "as is" embedded os devices.

Hello jer1956!

Is there an other way that both USB HDDs have the same order at start up?
They are always connect at the same USB-Port. So why do they change the order sometimes?

The order is the order they finish mounting. That can change from boot to boot. Even the x3d has this issue. Its not going to change.

Kodi is ported from Windows, and when they mean "port" they just mean run as if its running on windows. They don't change their code to either deal with specific os issues such as linux doing this, or exploit hardware acceleration found on other platforms, such as ARM.

So you have two components which expect everything else to change to suit them. Its an unworkable combination.
