Playing off of a NAS

I recently added a large set of songs to my VOX playlist from a Synology NAS. I restarted my computer, re-connected the Finder to the NAS and then tried to play a song... any song. They all still are listed on the VOX player, but none of them will start actually playing.

    Can you play same songs via double-click? It must be SandBox problem. Make sure that NAS is mounted and double-click on any song.

    This script from the attachment will reset VOX to factory defaults. Next time you'll see the SandBox pop-up choose "Grant access to whole filesystem" (NAS should be mounted).

    I haven't responded in a while because it actually started working on its
    own. I mounted the NAS again and tried and it worked.

    However, this morning, that changed again. The NAS is fully mounted - I can
    play songs via the Finder with ease. However, the VOX controller still says
    "Loading" in the upper corner. When I try to play a song, the music never
    actually starts and no Sandbox or any other windows pop up. The thin orange
    bar near the top of the controller just keeps scrolling sideways as if it's
    loading. When I click the 'next' arrow, same situation. No song actually

    One clue, perhaps, is that I launched VOX prior to mounting the NAS. I
    realized that, then quit and re-launched it after the NAS was properly
    mounted. No change.
