  1. Also important to note is that you need to enable the "admin"-account. If it is enabled it will also say "Failed to run package service". I installed DSM6 and it did not work due to I did not use the admin-account.
  2. Thanks Helen, I will send a screenshot, but I do not have .nomedia and ES File Explorer has no issues creating the folder but Bittorrent Sync has. Thanks for your info.
  3. Thanks @helen, but I see on the Android TV that Android OS limits the write-access to this disk. So I have an USB-drive to my Android TV and wanted to create /storage/usbdrive/media folder but it is not allowed. Even when I use ES File Explorer Bittorrent Sync (after the update) still notifies me about the write-access-limit. So the beta is maybe helping with external sd-cards but not with usbdrives as external disks. "Android OS" part in the notification is also something that maybe limits this goal. Even so the workaround from @RomanZ did help so I can use it on my Nvidia Shield TV but Photos & Video app (default app) will not recognise my content in /storage/usbdrive/Android/data/com.bittorrent.sync FYI
  4. Sure @romanZ I will help out test it, but how can I participate, what do you need from me?
  5. Thank you @RomanZ, and yes indeed that it worked. Not to add a folder locally but an invite for a read/write folder through Bittorrent Sync did work flawlessly. The only problem I now see is that Android TV cannot index this folder, but Kodi can. Not a big deal, but a nice workaround. FYI
  6. When I have an Android TV (yes, I know not supported but still fully running) I found out that I can backup a folder on an external usbdisk connected to my Android TV, but I cannot add a normal folder from that same external usbdisk. Why is that different? It sounds to me that the file permissions are not the problem, right? I want to have the option to create a folder (from a read/write-key) in that external usbdisk (/storage/usbdisk/media for example). Why? Simple, because I can have my NAS or pc as a source and sync it always with my Android TV without any interaction by me. Due to limitations of Android 5.x or app-limitations (?) I cannot automatically move files from /sdcard (main volume) to /storage/usbdisk while I can backup /storage/usbdisk/media in Bittorrent Sync which implies that it should be possible to do, right? Hope anyone has tips or solutions...and maybe news of upcoming version (that can be sideloaded on Android TV ). Thnx!
