    So, it's been about 4 hours now i've been messing about with this box and after initially finding that Plex wont scrape the posters I also found that it doesn't even play back 1080p smoothly.

    So I am now going to use Kodi to serve my media, I tried the SMB share last night and that didn't work becuas it said 'operation denied', so now I am trying NFS and when add a new source and then browse for the NFS folder I can see it and enter it but the files I have added to those folders are not seen in Kodi, does anyone know what the hell is going on with this?

    try looking here for starters >> https://kodi.wiki/view/Video_library

    and the u9 -h is pefectly capable of playing 1080p so theres no need for any stupid comments like " How can this player be sold as 4K compatible when it doesn't even play 1080p files smoothly?"

    i had the same problem with SMB share from a windows 10 Pc

    but trying the Kodi 18 beta seemed to work

    ES file explorer works smoothly using MX player

    YMMV of course

    Does the U9-H support SMB version 2 or/and 3?
    I know SMB1 is disabled by default in Windows10, and my shared files are on a computer running Windows10. I switched on SMB version 1 and now I have no problem with Kodi and SMB shares on my U9-H.
    Also, its very important to name the folders and movies exactly as described in the Kodi forum, if not the scrapes may not work.

    There's no way I'm making a folder for every movie I have and rename all of the movies. I just have a "Movies" folder, and then I have A-Z sub-folders to organize the movies. I was having trouble with SMB running Windows 7 Pro. I went into the sharing properties and changed the encryption from 128-bit to 40-50 bit. That fixed issues of Kodi asking for username and password to view shared folders (even when password protection was "off").
