I've learned that it's only available from overseas. I'm okay with
that, but it makes returning it much more difficult should something
go wrong.

Do you mean to say it doesn't support SMB shares natively, and must be
set up using ssh/automount?

That's also not a problem (being a Linux admin), but just not what I
was expecting.

I returned it, and in the interim purchased a different one to try and
apparently doesn't support any kind of network file sharing, so I'm
returning this one now too. The docs and support really suck for these

I'd love to find a US distributor for the Vero device. Maybe there are
others that run OSMC and support file sharing?
