I get the following error when trying to access my NAS share from Movian on Android TV (Nexus Player).

"Unable to open resource smb://MyComputerName Connection attempt timed out"

This used to work nicely but seems to have stopped working.

I have attached a log.

Forgot to say that other apps on the Android TV access the NAS share easily.

i have movian running on my sony android too and i can access my synology just fine.

you need to create a bookmark with smb://computer/sharename and not only computername.
