MythTV using NAS

To get more storage and perhaps secure the data a bit more – so I decided to buy a ReadyNAS Duo, when Dustin A/S got it on offer.

Normally setup instrucktions are found here – will not doublepost.
Mostly you’ll just need to change some different params in the /etc/fstab file for getting this to work easily. I’ve changed my mainsetup on the CORE-server from

####################################################
# My shared discs for use in my MythTV system
####################################################
/storage/movies 192.168.20.1/24(rw,sync,subtree_check)
/storage/music 192.168.20.1/24(rw,sync,subtree_check)
/storage/pictures 192.168.20.1/24(rw,sync,subtree_check)
/storage/records 192.168.20.1/24(rw,sync,subtree_check)

To this:

####################################################
# My shared discs for use in my MythTV system
####################################################
/storage/music 192.168.20.1/24(rw,sync,subtree_check)
/storage/pictures 192.168.20.1/24(rw,sync,subtree_check)
/storage/records 192.168.20.1/24(rw,sync,subtree_check)

And added the line in /etc/fstab instead as normally mounted Networkdrive – Unfortunably this gives some delyas when starting the system up – but hey – we’re running Linux – do not need the restart. 🙂

##################################################################
# NAS-SERVER
##################################################################
192.168.20.5:/movies /storage/movies nfs rw 0 0

And that was almost that – Enjoy ussing the NAS-server for storage use in your MythTV System!
