    It would be great if you can provide out of the box SMB server capability. For someone like me that doesn't have a controller with full QWERTY keyboard, making an edit is a pain. If I am not mistaken root is needed to run a SMB server. I would not wish to root unless absolutely necessary.

    This is base on my usage of other media box. Having this feature built in is so much easier where I can just enable the SMB server, go to my PC and do the edit. And when I am done I just disable the SMB share server again.

    Any updates on this please, managing my sub drives by removing them from minix every time is painful, thinking of going back to Plex.

    The smb server option was added in the last (006) firmware update
