OK some more progress here..
I modded my wRT54GL using DD-WRT firmware and made it a ethernet bridge and placed it near my Denon 4806 and connected it. i also enabled the mac address and renewed the DHCP and presto.. I could access Denon settings through an ordinarly browser. The user interface is simple but this lends itself to a lot of possibilities. I also downloaded for free Windows Media connect and went through the process of identifying the Denon and allowing people to use my music folder..
I read the help file on Windows Media connect and the last step in piping music was "In your living room, use your DMR remote control to select the songs, artists, or albums that you want to listen to, and then press Play.
Windows Media Connect begins streaming the selected music to the DMR in your living room.
I am looking at the Receiver remote and there isnt anywhere a button or function that allows me to listen to the music in the share folder. Any pointers?
Also, a problem I seem to be having is when I access the settings of the Denon via a browser and click on Netaudio.. the page seems to refresh every half a second.. anyone know why and how I can fix this?
thanks in advance.
