Re: I can't play stored files on my PC off a V2 using OpenWebif

That probably explains why Grumpy_Geoff gets an exception on config.plugins.transcodingsetup.port even when it's defined in /etc/enigma2/settings. Defining it in the settings file doesn't create the object in Python - Python has to create the matching object.

Focus on that, because the issue is that you can't download any packages. This doesn't specifically have anything to do with NFS.

It may have been a transitory problem, or local to dRdoS7. I just installed the NFS plugin on my test V2.
