Last week I built my first MusicBox with a RB Zero W piggybacking a Phat DAC. I really love it while getting it to read the files from my NAS has been a problem at first. At last it workes now after changing the samba protocol to ver=1.0 in the MB configuration (see thread “Smb connection error 112 host is down”).
Now I see the NAS files (mp3s) in the web interface but the the playback is very choppy - stopping at least every 3 seconds for about a half second. Sometimes the playback from the network resource is not starting at all although the RB-cpu seems to be only at about 50% maximum.

Everything else is working as advertised so far.
There have already been threads about that kind of problems in this forum but they never seemed to have led to a definitive solution.
What is strange, is that the router (Fritzbox 7390), where the problematic network share is connected to, can also serve as a UPnP/DLNA server. When I stream the same files through DLNA via BubbeUPnP from the router to MusicBox the playback workes perfectly! But for me I would really prefer to use the web interface of MusicBox for this purpose by accessing the NAS files directly instead of always having to resort to my mobile phone. The web interface is very quick and universal on all my devices while BubbleUPnP is quite sluggish and restricted to my phone.
I would be very glad if some of you could help me to sort this out! SSH is available!
