I am a long-time Macintosh user, Unix user and a veteran of global enterprise networks, both data and voice.
Two days ago I acquired a 4-bay Synology 420+ and I dutifully installed it on the network and populated the NAS with drives full of music files (FLAC + DSF) and have it up and running perfectly with Roon, but when I go into Audirvana I can select the drives over the network in both versions of Audirvana, but nothing gets imported, it starts and then just stops.
And yes I have cleanly uninstalled both applications and deleted the folder from the Application Support directory as well any files in the Preferences folder, rebooted the Mac and then cleanly re-installed both apps. And that made no bit of difference.
SMB is set up to accept both levels 3 & 2. All is enabled as it should. The drive being read in ROON is being accessed via SMB, so we know that works.
I have to believe this is about how Audirvana reads files and syntax. Apart from that, I can’t imagine what else would cause this to occur.
Just went back to both applications to make sure and confirm that when Synology network drives are selected, the applications Start Syncing and then within 2 seconds they just stop whatever they were trying to do.
