Hi folks, I’m really in need of some help here as I’m about to throw my wdtv out of the window…
Here’s my setup:
WDTV Live (connected to my HDTV via HDMI)
NAS (dns-323 from D-Link with fun_plug) with UPNP AV server (from dlink), and recently tried the firefly.addon (also from dlink)
iTunes database (on my laptop which I use to add/remove/etc… music and sync on my iPod Touch, and the iTunes folders are mirrored/duplicated on my NAS every hour or so, so I can use it for wdtv live)
What I want:
I have finally succedeed to watch my videos (with the latest firmware) thru “Network Shares” on wdtv live. DONE
Pictures, easy. DONE
Music: I want to be able to play my iTunes’s music PLAYLIST (files are organized for iTunes architecture tree) on my wdtv live, with the iTunes folder on my NAS dns-323 (which remember is mirrored from my laptop). I cannot and will not scroll to songs I have so “Network Shares” seems to be out of the question…
I need to use my iTunes playlist/smartlist, which can change anytime if I add/remove songs, so I don’t have to re-do/create/modify a playlist on my iTunes and wdtv separatly, nor having to refresh manually my NAS (ex. DNLA, UPNP, etc). I want this to be transparent.I add a file on iTunes and add it to a playlist (or it is added auto via smartlist) and I want the changes to be auto reflected on wdtv live.
I though using the “Media Server” option on the wdtv live would work, but playlist don’t seem to be working (no file in current folders), and I also tried to change the “Genre” to add other genre like “christmas” so all my mp3 tagged with “christmas” would be there…
Ok, am I making any sense? Thanks for any info or help!
