I purchased the Raspberry Pi 3 and the Allo Boss DAC from the Volumio shop. Got it couple days ago and I have been trying for about 11 hours now to get Volumio to read my music share on my NAS drive.
This is the only method I want to use for Volumio to play music. Since the Shutdown function on the Volumio web UI and the (paid) iOS App does not unmount your USB HDD from the Raspberry Pi correctly. It makes a horrible clanky sound and this obviously, over a number of times will end up damaging my 1TB HDD.
I would be very appreciative if someone could help me to USE the NAS with Volumio.
I found a guide for Synology written by a moderator here and I tried to replicate what he did but no results. The QNAP UI is different to Synology’s. I have the QNAP OS 4.2.
I have also contacted Michelangelo, and he strongly recommends using SMB/CIFS rather. But I have not been able to do it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
PS. I am pretty illiterate with programming, coding, linux and all those languages so I rely on user interfaces to get things done.
