I have a PR4100 (running OS5), which is used solely as a media hub, primarily serving video and audio through the PLEX server software (on the PR4100), to the Android PLEX app on my Sony TV.
However, I want to be able to connect my newly acquired Pioneer N-50K network streaming hi-fi separate, to the music folder on my PR4100 NAS device, so that I can stream the music into my home hi-fi system.
At the moment, whenever the Pioneer streamer searches for folders anywhere on the network, it doesn’t find anything. It is connected to the router (and wider internet) correctly, and streams internet radio stations just fine.
There appears to be some settings that I might need to change on the PR4100 NAS, so that the two devices can talk to / find one another. Pioneer tell me that DHCP must be enabled on the PR4100, and at the moment, this doesn’t seem to be enabled.
On the network services tab of the PR4100, IPv4 is presently set to “STATIC”, and IPv6 is set to “OFF”. I had done this, so that other computers on the network could access the PR4100 as a mapped network drive (which wouldn’t jump about with changing IP addresses) and be able to access all of the media files whether through PLEX (also using PLEX on the individual computers) or not.
When I attempt to change IPv4, it takes me through a set-up wizard, but I don’t know what settings to change them to, so that it doesn’t interrupt or affect the ability to stream to PLEX apps (on TV and networked computers), but so that the Pioneer streamer finds it on the network, so that I can stream music files to it.
At the moment, I have: MUSIC, FILMS, TV etc set-up as core main files in the root directory of the PR4100, so it should be ready once the Pioneer streamer can find it.
Many thanks for any replies
