I did that and it couldn't repair the disk. Now that machine will not boot and is basically dead. It must be a bad hard drive, I can't replace it tonight and get the OS and backup back on it .. but will do tomorrow and get back to you if that fixes the problem or not.
This feels like a bad sector to me (I'm crap at networking, but a pretty good hardware guy).
I have a so-so backup but there are some work things that would make my life easier if I could get them off the old HD. Rather than reformat I'd like to pull the drive and plug it into my MBP (which I'm using now) and attempt to recover some files.
I've got the Mac Mini booted now from an old bootable leopard drive.. but it won't let me copy anything off the Mac Mini drive.
If it turns out to be a bad HD was the problem, don't worry.. I'll be happy to pay you for my "Duh" moment... I was too focused on the new OS being the problem.
OK, Finally back up and running with a shiny new copy of Snow Leopard and HD checks out OK with Disk Utility.
So.. Back to the problem: I set up the SMB sharing of the drive that I want to share and added it to the NeoTV. I get this error message on the TV when I add the address, name, password: "Host is not accessible. Do you want to enter the host again?"
Firewall was already off.
I have the latest firmware. I found a discussion which appears to be the same problem:
I installed "NSF Manager" .. but when I launch it it throws a DNS Check error: "This computer could be affected by DNS problems" .. "the following problem detected: DNS appears to have fallen back to Bonjour-only operation"
OK, I got the server installed... I can't find where to share the NSF on the Mac Server... I can set it up fine on the NeoTV.
Sorry I just realized they removed NSF sharing from the GUI in Mountain Lion server. I wasn't aware of that. You will have to follow this guide to do it after you turn File Sharing on and share your media folder:http://yourmacguy.wordpress.com/2012/06/29/osx-automount/
You should go to Apple Software Update first and update to 10.8.4
you lost me... that's all Greek to me.. looks like I have to enter a lot of complicated command line stuff?
I'm about ready to go back to snow leopard... :(
I tried Twonky, but never could get the netgear device to see the shares.
Sorry,I had to give up on lion and go back to Leopard... Lion was just headache after headache.. I felt like I was working with a Microsoft product!
I ran out of time and just needed my Mac to work.
Thanks for trying to help, I'll give you positive feedback.
