On the same wired LAN, I have 2 Minix U9s both running CoreELEC 9.2.6. The 2 U9s have different LAN IP addresses. Each have an attached USB HDD and each HDD has a Windows 7 network connection assigned to a different drive letter.
I’ve just installed the 2nd U9 after previously having trouble free Windows 7 network connection to the 1st U9s HDD. For CoreELEC on the 2nd U9, I cloned the SDCard from the 1st U9 onto a new SDCard for the 2nd U9 and used the CoreELEC ‘Clean’ function to update HDD content. But maybe my problem arises out of cloneing CoreELEC?
Now with 2 U9s on the LAN:
- if only one of the U9s is switched on, I can connect to that U9s networked HDD, but
- if both U9s are switched on, I can only connect to the HDD of the 1st U9 that I switched on, but not the HDD of the 2nd switched on U9.
I have gone into Settings CoreELEC>System>Identification>System Name and tried to change the name of the 2nd CoreELEC to CoreELEC2 but the change did not stick…and anyway this would likely cause a problem on system update.
Is there an easy fix for this problem…that will survive a system update?
Thanks for your help…and apologies if this topic has been dealt with previously, but I did do a search and couldn’t see that it had been.
