Linux - getting an old Android tv box to connect with Samba

I have an old tv box for the exercise room.  It runs Android 4.  It does not browse Samba shares any more.  I was going to toss it, until I looked things up.  The work-around is to 'add network location' using the smb protocol and manually enter the ip address and Samba share.  Then it shows up in your list and you add the share as normal.
