I am new to forums, and have just purchased a WDTV Live Media Streamer. Unfortunately I am working away from home at the moment, so will have to wait till the weekend to install it.
When thinking about how I would like to use it, one important requirement would be to play music. It would be great to do so without switching the TV on as I find that intusive, and just use my Google Nexus 7 tablet as a remote. I envisage it would work like this:
- The WDTV box is hooked up to my 10 year old Marantz Receiver via optical cable (and the TV via HDMI).
- That I would use the WDTV app on my Nexus 7 to navigate to Spotify and play the music.
Is this possible? Is it as simple as that? Would I need the TV on? Would I need my DLNA networked PC on?
Apologies if this is a numpty question.
