    I am using a HP Media Vault Pro as a server for presenting music to my Roku Soundbridge. Firefly is set (by default) to rescan every 60 second and “painfully aggressive”. I can get to the configuration page page, but any changes are denied – the configuration file is set as non-writeable. I suspect the constant rescanning is overburding the dinky “computer”, resulting in a lot of reloading from the Soundbridge. Does anyone know how to change the configuration file?

    I can see the file by using SSH, but I don’t know how to edit it as I am no Linux expert…

    I would appreciate help 😀

    You can map to it from Windows and then use notepad++ to edit it.

    By the way, what model number Media Vault is it? If it’s an MV1 (2010,2020, 2040) then you should consider installing svn 1696 available at Lee’s HP Media Vault FAQ website: http://www.k0lee.com/hpmediavault/iTunes/index.html

    It’s more stable, has more features, and you can actually set the config from the web page.

    It’s a MV2 – HP Media Vault Pro Mv5000 series, the one with a single 500Gb disk pre-installed.

    Can you give me a hint on how to do this? Notepad I know, but not how to map into the file – or location.

    I don’t know where the config file is located on the MV2 which comes with Firefly preinstalled. Ask about it in the HP MediaVault Yahoo Group.
