Runing home music network without computer using Squeezebox and QNAP
I am new to this forum and home networking.
I have a Iomega home net work drive that runs with a lunix based firmware. Do you think I can install the slimserver on this?
If not should I get a QNAP? How easy is it to set up? Do you have to buy a seperate hard drive for it? Can I use a windows based PC to install the Slimserver onto the QNAP? Do you then store your MP3 on it and can you stream these to the Squeezebox without your PC being on?
What about the Linksys Network Storage Link NSLU2 NAS? I have seen from the links of the logitech website that these are difficult to install the slimserver on and the instructions, quite frankly scare me. http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Applications/SlimServer
I would really appreciate some help as I bought the Iomega network drive being assured it would work and I cannot get it to work. Maybe I need to follow this scary instructions in the link above?
