I left it as-is last night and fell asleep to video streaming from this on Channels, a DVR program. Woke up to silence and nothing would play.
Tried rebooting and couldn’t get to it with ssh, so something is wrong and I have to disconnect it, bring it up to my study, where I can connect it to a monitor, and figure it out.
So there’s a good chance Samba is not the issue at all, but something worse, like a drive failure or something like that.
I’ll update when I know what is going on.
