    I am unable to browse for any shares through Mediaportal2
    MP2 doesn't show my NAS or Mapped drives in the Neighborhoud media sources.

    I've used XBMC & Plex and they all show my mapped drives/shared folders, NFS/SMB shares of my Synology nas.

    Is there anything I can do to add media sources manually? It seems that MP2 removed this ability.

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    @morpheus_xx i've just tested your new testbuild and I'm able to add the source manually via \\ipadress\path
    MP2 is now scanning my media.

    thanks a lot.

    Using Summer 15 version. I can see my Synology NAS but it does not show any of the shares on it. Manual entry, as in //server/share, does not work. Any help appreciated as this is preventing my move from Version 1 to 2. Thanks

    This turns out to be that the Synology NAS account needs to be an Admin account for the list of shares to be displayed. Once I did that all worked fine and I'm now up and working on MediaPortal 2. Thanks for your assistance.
