[MENU] Menu > Sources

The Local Sources screen allows you to configure the locally connected data sources containing your audio files. Both Network Attached Storage (NAS) and USB storage can be configured on this screen.

The "Rebuild MPD Library" button refreshes the content of your MPD music library by reading again the contents of your Network and USB Mounts.

Network Mounts

This section lists all Network Attached Storage (NAS) configured for your device.

Clicking "Add new mount" allows you to configure a new Network Mount. When adding a new mount, complete the following fields:

The following options are available for the type of file-share to which you are connecting:

  • SMB/CIFS (OS X): select this for connecting to an OS X file share
  • NFS: select this option for connecting to a unix file share
