    Hi all, I’m trying to set up forked-daapd so my Apple TV 4k can see OMV as an itunes server using Home Sharing. I’ve searched all over the place for documentation/answers including OMV forums so sorry if I missed something. Some people seem to have got it working, although there seem to be issues with connections dropping out. I can’t even get my Apple TV to see OMV.

    One issue could be that the Apple TV is looking for a computer (or presumably an itunes server?) with the same Apple ID (user id) as the one used on Apple TV. How do I specify the Apple ID in forked-daapd? I tried putting the Apple ID as the Library Name in the forked-daapd config screen in the OMV UI but that didn’t work. Note that I did not have include any switches or other syntax, just the Apple ID, so maybe the Library Name parameter needs some correct syntax to work? Or maybe I need to edit a config file somewhere?

    All help welcome!

    Hello there! Not sure if this is the right place for this post, but here goes.

    I have been running OMV 3 on my HP Microserver Gen8 just fine for a while. I am now looking to upgrade the system memory and just wondered if anyone has had experience of this? Procedures, potential problems, etc.

    Many thanks!

    This is probably a noob question but I have a running OMV installation on a raspi 3 with a 4tb hard drive attached. I want to create a new OMV setup on an old desktop machine and move the raspberry pi's 4TB drive full of data onto it without having to setup all the shares again and then copy all the data over. I'm guessing I can't use backup or clonezilla because I would be restoring to different hardware.

    Is there any way to do this?

    I have been using the WebDav plugin since OMV 2 and I am pretty happy with its simplicity and performance.

    I wanted to ask if it would be possible to update the WebDav plugin so it could admit several mount points from different shared folders/disks or maybe it would be pretty hard to accomplish it via a plugin.

    Thanks in advance to all devs for making it easier for the users
