I have the problem, and my media library is on.
So if you have the Media Library switched on and FOLDER view selected the first track plays and then stops. Then you have to play track two manually and the rest of the tracks play in sequence?
Okay, I’ve verified the FLAC behavious - Media Library switch: ON
With respect to MUSIC view. Files are always displayed/played in descending sequence. Doesn’t seem to be any way to convince it otherwise.
With respect to FOLDER view. Files display in proper sequence. However, when you start the play at *any* track number, it will play that track only and not continue. When you play the next track manually, it will continue on and play the remaining tracks in that folder. Interesting aside, there is a ‘ticker’ at the bottom that shows the tag info of the currently playing track - AND what track is ‘next’. Your first selection leaves NEXT at blank – and it does in fact stop. However, a subsequent play will properly show what is next and, if fact, plays it.
So, if you want to play an entire FLAC album in FOLDER view, here’s the workflow:
Choose FOLDER view
Obviously navigate to the desired folder
The tracks should be shown in the proper sequence (as long as you have track number first in your naming convention).
Choose track 2. Then quickly move up one and choose track 1. It will play track 1 and you’ll see that at that point it properly seeds the ‘NEXT’ track name on the ticker at the bottom. It will now play the entire FLAC album properly.
Sheeze! A workflow just to play an album. WD - if you’re listening, might I recommend a fix in the next release?
On the good news front, the unit is very, very versitile. I shoot and edit HD video. I’m now able to quickly push h.264 hi-def video from my editing rig thru the network to the Live Hub and proof edits on my home theater system. Plus, listening to (properly made) FLACs (especially the 24-bit ones) is a real treat. I’m probably going to get a second one just to tote around for client and prospect presentations. I believe the combination of the Live Hub and a hi-def HDMI projector would be quite a powerful selling tool.
