How do I add my Sooloos library that's on my MC200. What commands on a MAC?

Also how do I use Roon and still have the output going to my 808 endpoint?

Sorry, I'm lost.

I exported my Sooloos library in NATIVE format to a new hard drive and used that to run Roon temporarily on a laptop with the hard drive in an Icybox via USB 3
I have the laptop hard wired to my network.

The Roon software finds my MS200 end points, so all I do is select one.

At the moment you may have problems with both Sooloos and Roon cores running together.
You would have to turn off the Sooloos core ideally. It should see the MC200 endpoint.

No 18 in the Hall of fame smile I have simple tastes; I am content to settle for the best:
GIK monster bass panels, rear wall. QNAP TVS 471i3. Roon into DSP5200SE via 218 zone... (Thanks Russ) Explorer 2. Bluesound Pulse 2 and Mini. 596v1, 518, Foxsat HD, Sony BDP, Pioneer 5090, 2 Chromecast's for LRB videos.
My F80 is in repair...

If at first you don't succeed, try again. Then quit. No use being a fool about it.

Your MC200 acts as a Samba drive on your network. All you need to do is point Roon at SMB:\\<IP address of MC200>\Music\Music2

Personally I think the suggestion of doing an export from your MC200 to a different drive is more sensible due to the unintuitive folder structure of Sooloos causing more issues with Roon's metadata library creation than necessary.


Sooloos, Roon, G series (with LPS upgrade), 800 series (with LPS upgrade), HD621, AC200, Prime and PS, DSPs old and new.

Purdeys, Moke, Leica, 'Blad. Only the best.

Hi

Here is a guide to mount smb share in OSX use this in combination with dpstjp's guidance in the post above.

Cheers

AFAIK...HQ and Roon are still finalising the options for Roon reading directly the Sooloos store info. I think recent HQ messages touched on this.

So, for now, a native export is the tested way to go.

Hold on a while and the Sooloos store reading option may surface.

This will be a neat option for those that simply want to add the Roon control but leave the rest of Sooloos intact (initial rip/import, MD600, TwinStores, etc).

I am sure either BobS or Danny will be able to confirm this at some point very soon.


Rgds,
Nick

I tried adding the SMB command as suggested with the IP address and the folder \music\music 2 and I still get a message back indicating "Invalid network path".

I think I am giving up until Meridian and Roon work this out. I don't have another drive to export to.

Waking myself up.

I was adding the SMB command with IP into the Network field in Roon.

I went back and mounted it using the
Code:
GO-->Connect to Server--> SMB://... 
field then pointed at the correct music files.

Now I just have to figure out how to get sound from the 808's outputs and not just my laptop. I checked the 808 but it continued playing via the laptop.

Did you see Nick's latest post on that subject in the Roon forum?

I have posted my issue on the Roon Forum under "How Do Roon and Sooloos coexist". Trying to work thru it now.
