Problems with Yamaha RX-A1020 server input (DNLA client)
The Yamaha RX-A1020 has a Server input (though not on the Facia dial!) which allows the YAM to play content from DNLA compliant media servers over the ethernet.
I have found a couple of problems with this feature:
1. The Yamaha regularly does not recognise my Lacie Lacinema media server/player, even though it is visible to other devices on the network (e.g. my MacBook). The only solution appears to be to get the Lacie to go through it's automatic network set up. Sometimes it is also necessary to restart the YAM - All very tedious. Yamaha simply tell me that 'no problems have been reported' which is amusing since I did just that!
2. When the YAM looks for files on the Lacie Media Server it doesn't see all the files. I have folders organised by artist and then by album. It sees all the artist folders, but for some of those it sees only one of the albums. The curious things is that it either sees all the albums or just one (not always the first one). This even happens when all albums have been ripped to identical (flac) file format from CD.
Has anyone else had similar problems either on the server (lacie) end or the client (yamaha) end ?
