When I click an icon for Music, Pictrues or Video I see the Roksbox splash with box at the bottom of the screen. Then I'm sent back to the selection screen landing on the Picture Icon every time.
No errors popping up
Not using XML file or Root folder
Media Location and folder names are correct including case.
I can see my files on the server from computer using browser at http://192.168.2.124/photos
Root folders and XML names removed from Media Settings
Tried adding port extension (:8080) Yes, is on port 80
Searched forum and cannot find anything to help. (I'm not saying it isn't there)

Everyone's input on this finally gave me the breakthrough I needed to get up and running. The advice on here was invaluable to any struggling Synology NAS users, so thank you for taking the time to post!
In the end, it was well worth the gnashing of teeth to get Roksbox working with Synology. So much so I finally felt comfortable enough to pay for RoksBox today.
One question for other Synology users, have you found a way to hide the @eaDir folders? I get these folders that are hidden when connecting via PC but RoksBox displays them. They seem to duplicate content so guessing they are some kind of index file used by Synology.
Perhaps an ignore folders with "??" option would be a good option to submit for a future release but wanted to see if anyone else had any solutions to this already.
There is currently no way to hide these when using the directory structure option. Roksbox shows pretty much everything it sees. What do the names of these folders have in common? I can have Roksbox ignore these as long as they aren't likely to be something that someone would name a folder.
What do the names of these folders have in common?

Sorry, just to clarify. These @eaDir folders exist in every folder created on a synology NAS that has content in it, so they show up in every level with content when using Roksbox. So if it were possible to just ignore "@eaDir" specifically this would eliminate them all from showing.
The "#recycle" will only appear in folders that have had items deleted so tend to appear more sporadically. They can be removed but will reappear next time something it deleted from the folder. Again an ignore for "#recycle" would eliminate these from showing and should not affect other users.
Hope that helps clarify things a bit better.
See if version 1.17.2 fixes it

Well it did fix it but seems that 1.17.3 brought the @eaDir back. Perhaps you had to remove the changes made in 1.17.2, to ignore the @eaDir and #recycle folders, because it ended up adversely affecting other users but thought I would let you know that they are back just in case it was inadvertant.
