Hi all, have bought my first NAS (a Netgear Stora), and after some help from Thom getting it recognised initially, I have some basic questions about the best way to set it up; the wiki doesn't seem to answer many questions for the NAS noob, so I would like to change that, and add some info for my NAS specifically also.
The goal is to have a NAS that uses the LMCE file structure, and automatically store myth recordings (as well as being the main storage for all my media).
1. After plugging the NAS in, 3 things are detected; MyComputers, FamilyLibrary, MyLibrary, all as children of "STORA". Some are detected as file servers (one of them I think), some are detected as window shares (two of them I think). Is it important which one is chosen, or do all three need to be present? My understanding is that FamilyLibrary is the "general use" one.
2. When adding two (or all three? Damn you memory!) of these NAS items, a username and password needs to be set - can this be anything, or does it need to match the Kubuntu password or the LMCE password? Think it said samba password, so I assume these are to do with the window shares?
3. Once added, does anything need to be done manually to set up permissions? I read a few posts about people have to change permissions before PVR recordings could take place - is this normal? And if this does have to be done, is there a correct way of doing it that minimises the risk of breaking things?
