thanks for the tip, but I don't think it's in that type of configuration

I've made a fix for now, which is not terribly elegant but It will do for my purposes:

reboot the nas
login via telnet
cut and paste from text file these commands:
ps | grep daapd | cut -c 0-6 | while read id; do echo "killing "$id; kill $id; done daapd -C /mnt/md1/.daapd-cache -n nas -p 3689 -s 60000 /mnt/md1/public/music -t 0 -d &
wait for maybe a minute for the initial scan to complete

then once the daapd starts working it keeps going, problem solved.

Obvoiusly I'd like to put this in to a startup script somewhere after the initial daapd stuff has run, but I'm not sure this is possilble on my firmware. I'm using the 2.3.3a that came with the box as I don't want to lose my network printer support. Otherwise I'd go with Tinky, with which I could use my own scripts in init.d

thanks for the help guys.

Hey flip,

Thanks for your prompt reply

Yes it appears to get overwritten to default when the service is started and
stopped. Looking at the processes:

My initial experiments with this box also provided little joy at
trying to alter the config files.  What I found DID work was to save
the configuration to a local file, unpack it (it's just a tar archive)
edit the relevant file, and add the file back to the original archive,
before restoring the configuration.   This got me /etc/exports changed
at least when I first got the box, still on 2.3.3 firmware.  I've a
vague recollection that the file was different on 2.3.3a, though, but
I wasn't really looking that hard that time.

Also, there seem to be a lot of configuration options in
/system/codb/objects which is a filesystem in the flash, so you might
also try digging around in there, although I've not spotted anything
relevant to your query myself during the very quick look I just had.

Good Luck,
