I just migrated my roon server to a nucleus +. I don’t think the USB 3.0 connection from my Nucleus to my QNAP TV-617 (NAS) is working. I am only able to connect to the music library via a network connection using the IP address of the NAS. Also, when I shut the NAS down (leaving the Nucleus on), it shuts down, however, the display on the NAS continues to display “Shutting Down”. Even if I pull the powercord on the NAS the display still says “Shutting Down”. It is only when I disconnect the USB 3.0 connection from the Nucleus to the NAS does the display light on the NAS turn off. This behavior does not happen if I connect to one of the USB 2.0 ports on the NAS.
My assumption is that if the USB connection from the nucleus to the NAS is working then there would be not need for a network connection from the Nucleus to the NAS. I should see shared folders from the NAS on the storage setup pages on the Nucleus.
Help! Buying the Nucleus 2k has only made what was a simple configuration of running the roon server on the NAS more complicated. I am ready to return the device.
I guess the drag is the music has to be streamed over the wi-fi from the NAS to get to the nucleus. In my configuration, I do have an HDMI connection from the nucleus to my audio reciever. If I had known my TV-671 on accepts peripheral devices I would not have jumped to the nucleus
It works fine w/out the USB connection from the Nucleus to the NAS. The problem is I assume the USB ports available on the nucleus allow you to connect to the NAS and monitor your folders accordingly. W/out the USB to NAS working I can only connect from the Nucleus to the NAS via a network connection. I think the problem I have is that my TV-671 only allows peripheral devices to be connected via USB.
