I’m a new user and I can’t get this problem solved:
I have a WD TV Live SMP with a USB drive attached. On the USB drive is my iTunes media collection. Everything is set up nicely and I can see and play the collection from within iTunes on my MacBook.
Unfortunately, when I play a song the sound is not coming from the stereo, to which the WD TV is attached to via the optical out but from my MacBook. I do understand that this makes sense, however, I want to listen to it on my stereo and wonder if there’s a setting for it. When I access the files from within the WD TV they play via the optical out alright. FWIW, I set the Audio Output to Digital Pass-Throught via Optical Only.
So, I guess the question is: can I control my iTunes collection with my MacBook without streaming the content back to the computer but playing it through the digital audio out?
Thanks for any hints and excuse my funny English - I’m German.
