I have read much on this forum about artist and album info not appearing when playing a music track. This includes using the Media Library and Get info features and creating xml files with the required info at the album level.
I am playing music tracks successfully from my Win 7 PC through the home network.
When I display any song in windows explorer on my PC the File (track) name artist and album are displayed. Since the WD TV box is reading the file and playing it directly from the PC shared (Network Shares) disk drive, why cannot it read and display the artist and album?
Also, I have successfully created and played songs thru the WD TV box using playlists created as .pls .m3u and .wpl all of which contain the filename, artist and album details. None of these display the data embedded in each track in the play list when it is playing.
Creating xml files at the album folder level should be unnecessary when the data is already available in standard formats.
Am I missing something here? If I am, I apologize in advance?
