Hi all, I have a bit of a random question. I bought a Synology Diskstation DS210j (a network storage drive) to hold our music library on the home network. The Yamaha is able to see the Diskstation as a media drive when I connect through "PC" mode, and it can play back files if controlled through the receiver/remote. So far so good.
However, the Diskstation AudioStation software is meant to allow you to send music from the unit to a DLNA digital media player. In my case, from within the AudioStation software it can see the RX-A1000 and identify it as a media renderer. However, if I queue up a music file and press play, the Yamaha thinks for a minute then displays "Unable to play". Yet I know it can play that file because if I try to play the exact same WAV file direct from the RX-A1000 it has no issues. So I know format is not an issue since it will play the file if I queue it up from the Yamaha, just not if I try to push the file through from something else. My firmware on the receiver is up to date too (2.05)
Anyone have experience with this, or any workarounds? Internet scouring hasn't landed me much to date (aside from ******* site in stars: http://*******/9PIA4e
) I'm happy that I can at least access music from the Yamaha (everything is networked right, phew!), but I would love to be able to 'push' music from the library to the Yamaha rather than pulling it through the Yamaha since it's so easy to navigate the computer screen with playlists etc. rather than endlessly scrolling on the Yamaha screen (or TV output). Thanks!
UPDATE: I was able to push through MP3 and AAC format files from the computer to the receiver without issue, but it keeps rejecting the WAV files as controlled from the computer (but plays them just fine if accessed through the receiver) - weird. Might try to rip my stuff in Flac instead and see how that works.
