Am I missing something here? I mapped to a nas and clicked "add to library" for my "music" folder which contains subfolders by artist and then subfolders under that by album. But it doesn't show any of the songs - its like it's only reading the directory and not searching subs. Do I have to add every folder to the library? Shouldn't there be a "search subdirectory" checkbox when you add to the library?

Subdirectories of import dirs are automatically scanned.

Are the songs listed in any of the other music browser views? If so, then it is just a folder view issue that should be checked out.

If not, then maybe there is a permissions issue accessing the paths.

Or, maybe the database is full: have you received a message on the Main Menu in standalaone mode saying that? If not, then this isn't likely to be the problem.

You may have Sage set to not refresh import directories automatically. If this is the case, you probably need to tell it to scan the import directories.

If you are in the Music Library screen, Right Click (or hit the "Options" button on your remote). From the pop-up menu, choose "Advanced Options." You will see another pop-up. Choose "Refresh Imported Media".

If you want Sage to scan automatically, go to the Detailed Setup Menu, then the "Customize" sub-menu, then find the option "Regularly rescan import directories" and set to "Yes." Otherwise it only rescans when you do the manual refresh and possibly if you restart Sage.

It's a new box with no media on it yet and I've only told it to scan a few directories and have not gotten an error message. I do have to login to the share when I browse it through the network - but I believe that is stored in the link it creates? I'm seriously considering creating a read only user on that share. Do you guys know what the default that it tries it? Is it like "guest" with no password?

I have tried the manual "refresh imported media" and on the customize I have set regularly rescan to "yes". Does the device need to be turned on for that to happen or does it not really go off when you turn it off (which i suspect as the network light keeps blinking away).

There is definitely stuff in the folders when you drill down through the network search on my sage tv server, however I have not tried to drill that far on the HD200.
