I’ve had a WD TV Live for a couple of months now, and I’m very pleased with its capability of video- and YouTube-playback. Especially I like the possibility of using the iPhone/iPad as remote, although I think there’s quite some room for expanding this extension of the useage. Particularly it would be brilliant for audio playback, if you could select the music to be played directly on the device rather than having to turn on the TV to see what you’re doing.
That’s not my issue, however. One of the great things I was looking forward to was to be able to collect all media - video, audio and pictures - in one single hub and access everything with one single remote. To get rid of the inferious MP3s and dump the physical CDs in the storage and have as much music and as many movies as I’d like to on one single box.
I started loading the external harddisk connected to the WD with FLAC-albums, and quickly found out that it was displayed in a quite disorganized way when accessed through the WD TV Live. Earlier today I thought I’d start tidying up, and I started from the beginning of the alphabet to rename, tag and put covers on the albums in the correct order using a program I’ve had my hands on before - mp3tag.
However, when I tested if the tags were accepted by the media player, I was disappointed to see that it hardly changed anything. For instance, I’d collected all Bruckner-symphonies under one tagged album to avoid it being spread over 9-10 CDs, where some symphonies might even be shared over two CDs. The same with double-CDs I’d merged into a single album - it refused to show up as one single album, as well as my attempts to rename albums also failed.
I’ve tried to look for a solution on the internet, but haven’t been able to find a good answer.
Is there anything I can do here? Should I use a different program than mp3tag? Or perhaps the settings in the program?
For your information I’m using the latest firmware on the media player, and as said I’m playing back directly off a harddisk connected to the WD TV Live. “Media Library” is set to on. Any help is greatly appreciated.
