I can't believe this can be a thing, but googling around and so on leads me only to people with the same problem back in 2008. Surely it's not impossible now, I'm hoping.
MP3 library in media\music on the readynas. Firefly and ReadyDLNA running happily, if that's relevant.
Airport Express on the same network with nice connections to the hifi.
All I want, which seems like it ought to be a simple idea, is to use the iPad as a remote to play music from the NAS on my hifi. I can sort of get this to work by adding a PC running iTunes into the mix and using Remote on the iPad. It's a poor solution really. Is there not a better way? I want this to be wife-friendly, and starting up the PC and iTunes is not that.
