Photo and Music Libraries not working with network locations

Hello everyone,

I've been trying to add my photos and music to the Metro apps and if I understand correctly, I need to add the folder locations to the Libraries.

I've got my Music and Photos located on a Windows 2008 R2 server with the Windows Search service running and configured to index those locations.

Initially, I simply added the network location to the library ie: \\SERVER\Shared\Music, and this SORT OF worked, I was only able to see the folders in the photos and only some music showed up with some track info missing.

Then I made the folders available offline and added them again, this time NOTHING shows up.

Has anyone gotten the Metro apps to work with network locations?
