Default [Q] Network file systems on the FTV?

Has anyone managed to get any network file systems to mount on the firetv?
I've tried nfs (no nfs module), smb (no cifs module) and even sshfs (no fuse). I would like to connect to my home NAS and would rather mount directly then having to sync with the file system.

I'm using smb shares coming off a synology in xbmc without any problem, but haven't tried it at the ftv OS level.

I forget the command but there is a command you can issue to see what filesystems the kernel supports. in 4.2 some kernels did support NFS.

Looks like it's the /proc/filesystems file. It appears that the fire tv supports nfs, and apparently fuse as well:

Code:
nodev	sysfs
nodev	rootfs
nodev	bdev
nodev	proc
nodev	cgroup
nodev	tmpfs
nodev	debugfs
nodev	sockfs
nodev	pipefs
nodev	anon_inodefs
nodev	rpc_pipefs
nodev	devpts
	ext3
	ext2
	ext4
nodev	ramfs
	vfat
nodev	nfs
nodev	nfs4
nodev	cifs
	fuseblk
nodev	fuse
nodev	fusectl
nodev	oprofilefs
Looks like I'll go back to trying to get nfs to work. Since I didn't see an nfs module I assumed it wasn't supported, guess it's built into the kernel
