Dune driver wait for config error
#1
Strange the log says can't find Dune config file, and also says MyMovies is not connected, but MyMovies shows connected.
This is on 5.4.0 release of CQC
My Dune player is the Dune HD Pro, and I have tried the config with new, and old remote setting, but neither works.

I see part of the problem... I never made the config file.
This is what the Dune CQC instructions say, but i do not understand what each part should be directed to.

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<DuneHDCfg>
<SharedDirs>
<Dir Path="\\HomeSrv\Media1" Type="smb" User="MediaUser" Password="MyPassword"/>
<Dir Path="\\Bedroom\Media2" Type="smb" User="MediaAccess" Password="OtherPassword"/>
</SharedDirs>
</DuneHDCfg>

I have my Windows machine setup to access the NAS via mapped drives.
What is HomeSrv... Is that my PC name?
What is Media1 User... I created a user called CQC in Windows 7
Do I have to have a password?

My HT equipment I want to control by CQC (some day hopefully)

You are telling the Dune driver what shared directories the Dune is set up to use. So presumably you'd just have one entry and it would be whatever shared directory the Windows machine sees the NAS as. Not a drive but a directory. Presumably when you set up the mapped drives you pointed them at a shared directory on the NAS, so I'd look there.

The user name and password is whatever is required to access that shared directory on the NAS from Windows.

If I do not use a user name to access the NAS from Dune or windows... Do I leave the user, and password blank?

This what I have now...

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<DuneHDCfg>
<SharedDirs>
<Dir Path="\\Tower\HDMovies" Type="smb" User="MediaUser" Password="MyPassword"/>
</SharedDirs>
</DuneHDCfg>ower

It Still doesn't work... error is Some fields of this driver get no initial values. Up to the first 8 are displayed

I have it written like this

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<DuneHDCfg>
<SharedDirs>
<Dir Path="\\Tower\HDMovies" Type="smb" User="MediaUser" Password="MyPassword"/>
</SharedDirs>
</DuneHDCfg>ower

i even tried saving it as UTF-8 in notepad

can this be written with the IP address, and MNT/user/HDMovies/ and NFS?

That isn't an error related to the driver not connecting. It's just a reminder that some of the fields aren't being given initial values and probably should be.

One thing you have to be aware of when dealing with shared directories is that Windows security is involved and that things like drivers are running in the background in a service, which by default typically doesn't have such rights anymore. You usually will need to set up the CQC App Shell service to log in under a regular Windows user account in order for drivers to access shared folders.

Make sure that's on the machine where the driver is running.

I do not understand. i have tired modifying the dune cfg file with different paths... ip address, name of NAS, i have made a user called CQC in Windows, and on the NAS with passwords, and nothing work for this driver. I purchased 2 Dun HD Pro boxes specifically for CQC too.

Why do you not have a Dune driver that will just control Dune? I do not need to have it display on my tablet all the movies, although it would be nice if it would work.

config file which is exactly like the smb folder path in dune. I do not know how to do a NFS path in the config file as the path is /mnt/user/hdmovies
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
        <DuneHDCfg>
            <SharedDirs>
                <Dir Path="\\Tower\HDMovies" Type="smb" User="guest" Password=""/>               
            </SharedDirs>
        </DuneHDCfg>

I need help, please.

Did you set up the CQC App Shell service to use the CQC account you created? I.e. for the service to log in under that account? That's completely separate from the config file stuff.

I'm thinking about getting a Dune. I had an early one but it croaked at some point. Plex is overkill for me, and my little NAS struggles to act as a Plex server, whereas with the Dune it would just have to serve up files and rip them, which it can easily handle. And it can still act as a test system for Plex driver development as well.

That'll get me an up to date one and I can see if anything has changed and verify that it's all still working the same (or not and adjust for that.)

I went ahead and ordered one, though it's going to be a while coming, since it's shipping from the UK apparently. It's way more expensive than it should be for what it does, to be honest. $250 for the lowest end HD model, since I don't need the wireless or the Z-Wave or any of the other bits and bobs.
