OK, I'm finally fed up with SMB streaming of HD video files; it works great at times, and then other times there's lots of audio dropouts, freezes, etc.
I'd like to make the switch to using my G4 (running 10.4.5) as an NFS server, but I just can't get it working with the Roku. I can export the hard drive containing my video files just fine (using NFS Manager). When I mount it on my mac, I can browse all of the files through the command line just fine. I'm able to mount the share on the Roku (it's listed by the mount command, and all of the parameters look OK), but when I try to ls the files in the mounted share, there's nothing there.
I suspect this is some sort of wierd permissions issue; I've followed all of the advice in the various threads here, but I just can't get it to work. Could one of the mac users who's gotten this working (there are several of you) please take the time to check their NFS server configuration on the mac and post their detailed settings (or send me a PM) so that I can make sure I haven't missed something?
