I have the Dune 4k HD player. It has worked for years.
I have it connected to my Mac.
Yesterday was a power surge for a few minutes and I had to restart my mac. I have done that before.
But now when I try to access my network folders from the Dune it says I dont have permission. I have not changed anything.
I tried to write the IP manually but it does not work. I tried removing all the shared users from my mac and add a new onebut same error.
Why cant I connect anymore?

Have you tried restarting the network router in case that is part of the problem.

Can the Dune see Serviio or Plex/Emby as UPnP/DLNA media server running on the Mac ?

Here you can see my settings on Dune and on filesharing on the Mac.

Your Dune is accessing Samba (SMB) network shares on the Mac.

This isn't the easiest thing to diagnose or solve which is why a reboot of everything is recommended.

If that has not solved it try creating a new sharing only user account on macos just for the dune instead of using your own account, see if that works.

DLNA is another approach for sharing media, Serviio is a DLNA media server that can run on macos, if you have it up and running it should auto appear in the Dune network browser.

You must add folders holding media into Serviio shared folders then it will scan them (see getting started). This will at least let you know if the Dune has some means to read the mac, just not through Samba.

Ok. I just installed Serviio and set it up by finding and sharing my two HDDs. So on the Mac side and in the Serviio console evertyhing looks good. I will try and reach it from my Dune.

I try to go through Network Broser on Dune but should I see something different and new there?
It looks the same. I click through WORKGROUP and all that until I reach my HDDs and I try to open but same error. NETWORK RESOURCE IS NOT ACCESSIBLE.

Should I do something in the Network Settings on Dune or should I find a folder called SERVIIO?

I am not sure what Serviio does. Should I write down a folder path or an IP adress?

The craziest thing! It works.
First I tried with the Serviio but same error. Then I did a "real" reboot of the Dune since you said I should do that. I am not sure if that was what was needed to get it to work.
