I'm looking to start streaming music around the house and have a few questions about iTunes and NAS drives I'm hoping someone with experience will be able to help me with. I use windows vista and have 2 iTunes libraries, one for lossy files and one for lossless. I want to be able to stream from both libraries ideally, but for some reason I can't name the libraries differently in itunes on the pc. When I use the apple remote app on my iphone it can only see 1 library, and that is the library that is currently open in itunes on the pc. Is it possible to have these 2 libraries named differently? What I'd like to do is install a NAS drive so I don't have to have the pc on all the time and store the 2 itunes libraries on the NAS drive. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to go the airplay or sonos route, but either way the intention is the same whereby using the iphone as a remote I should be able to access both lossless and lossy libraries without the pc being on. Is this possible? Does anyone have any recommendations for a NAS drive. Ideally I'd like the NAS drive to do the following: allow remote access to the NAS drive via iphone, a wireless back up function, run iTunes (with 2 libraries if possible), it must have a simple user interface too. Also I have no idea what bittorrent certified means which appears in a number of these devices.
