View Full Version : Mounting NFS / Filesystem browser issue

2009-03-03, 02:06 AM
I am trying to mount an NFS share (I am using MythTV, however this should not matter since I am using the FILESYSTEM browser from the mvpmc menu).

I can mount it and see the contents of it when I telnet to the mvpmc, however the contents do NOT show up when using the mvpmc on screen menu FILESYSTEM. Is there something I am missing?

See below which shows the .avi file when telnet to the mediamvp:
# ls
bin etc linuxrc memory proc tmp union var
dev lib live oldroot sbin uPnP usr videosb
# cd videosb
# ls

My dongle.bin.config is attached.

Here is the command I am using to create and mount the NFS share:
mkdir /videosb
mount -t nfs -o nolock,rsize=4096,wsize=4096,nfsvers=3 /videosb

For avi's to play in mvpmc and show up in the Filesystem you need to install vlc as a telnet server. In some ways it works better than ffmpeg and GBPVR but it much harder to configure so I don't support it anymore. Try the mvpmc wiki or mailing list if you have difficulty.
