iTunes Server Can't play music

Hello

I have a USB connected to my R7000. All my music is shown perfectly using the remote app on my iPad. However, I cannot play any music. I have tried selecting my Apple TV as well as some JBL airplay speakers and can't get it to work. It appears as though the play option is not available at all.

Any suggestions?

Re: iTunes Server Can't play music

After some research found that Remote app is actually just to control another device but it actually doesn't play any content.

The "iTunes Server" functionality works as expected when I'm connecting to the r7000 library from my iTunes client on my PC.

The music app on the other hand just supports home sharing, which is not the "iTunes Server" feature offered by R7000.

The only way I found for playing my music on my iPad from the router is through a DLNA app. I'm using a free app called MediaConnect.

Hope that helps! And yes, frustrated by the fact that the iTunes functionality advertised is not Home Sharing, although this router is still a great piece of hw.
