Okay, I’m going to post this here with the hope that it prevents someone else from finding out the hard way that this problem exists. How frustrating, and it’s not all BluSound's fault.
I recently bought an NAD M10 for the purposes of streaming music sources, and wirelessly accessing the music stored on my MacBook Pro. With the update to macOS Catalina I am no longer able to access my MacBook Pro using either the “Local” or “Network” share function inside the BluOS app. How frustrating.
I’ve been “speaking” (email) back-and-forth at least 5 times with a support person at BluSound and still cannot get this to work. A while ago in our email thread he suggested that I try the IP address of the Mac, which I did, and it didn’t work. He’s now suggesting that I try it again…
As much as I appreciate his attempts to help me, this is getting ridiculous. I have tried everything that he has suggested and nothing works. I just wish that he would admit to the fact that this isn’t going to work. Apparently it’s not entirely BluOS’s fault, it seems to have something to do with a security function that Apple has added and that they have removed support for the SMB call/ routine in the newest OS update. I understand that for him to say this key function of their platform, and one that I bought the unit explicitly to do, is not working makes one question whether or not they should buy the device in the first place. Basically, since we have gone back and forth on this email thread for 5 days I believe the opportunity for me to return this device has passed. I will be looking into this.
Does anyone have an alternative to this problem that they could share please? As much as I don’t want to, I might need to find a way to move/ duplicate all of my music from my Mac and put it onto an external drive that I then physically attach to the NAD M10.
Does anyone have a suggestion on the type of external I should buy? I’m assuming that an SSD will work?
Thanks very much,
