I have a Denon 4311ci receiver and want to play music files from my Windows 7 PC in another room. Figuring out using Homegroups and shared libraries I was able to play MP3 fine. The album art was displayed too.
However, when I tried to do the same with FLAC files only a big album art filled the TV screen but no sound. My Denon supports those FLAC files since it plays fine from USB stick.
What could be wrong?
In case it matters, I have Shark007 codec pack installed on the PC with the media files. Other than that I can't think of anything that could affect it.
Or, do I need to get into things like Twonkyserver that I know nothing about.
I would have thought I just needed to share the FLAC file folder and allow my receiver to grab and play it, just like with the MP3.
Actually, is this even "streaming" or just file access?
