Hey there,

Does anyone know if the Arcam Songbook app supports FLAC library playback over USB connection from network connected (wifi) storage?

I have the avr360 and would like to make use of the App, but I'm not sure if I need to have a wired network (cat5) connection to the receiver to do it. There is no hardline internet connection where the receiver will be placed.

I would like to know before I go buy a network drive......

The drive will be network connected via wifi and connected to the usb port of the Arcam. Then controlled by songbook. The receiver will have no direct connection to the internet. Will it work?

The songbook manual doesn't really touch on this.

Thanks in advance. biggrin.gif

DId a little digging and found that using a Wireless access point configured as a bridge will do the trick for me. If anyone has a similar situation where ethernet connection is not available, this is a viable solution.

Found this guy as a great resource.
