Okay, I'm using a new PS Audio PWD/Bridge combo device as media player, and though it sees my entire library on my NVX and plays everything just fine, the files are not displaying the bit rate accurately on the PWD device. I have pursued this with PS Audio and they are convinced that it's the NAS ReadyDLNA that is not sending the proper meta-data regarding bitrate when it serves up the files. So again, I have normal CD rips that are 16bit/44.1KHz FLAC files, and then I have other FLAC files from popular high rez sites that are 24bit/96KHz or even 24bit/192KHz, and some 24bit/48KHz....all are FLAC and all are tagged properly with all meta-data and album artwork. I have 2 problems: the bitrate never shows anything but 16bit, even when I'm playing 24bit files. They play fine, but the PWD is not recognizing them as 24bit. The other problem is album artwork is not consistently appearing on the PWD. It does for some, not for others, and all my files are tagged with album art. I have looked into pixel size of the art, stuff like that, but there seems to be no rhyme or reason to which art displays and which doesn't.
I am really hoping to avoid using Twonky which others are saying displays the bitrates just fine on the PWD. I know there is a Twonky add-on, but seriously? For a very big investment I made in a fully loaded 8TB NVX, I'd think this would be easier. Is there something I can do to see in the logs if the NAS even thinks it's sending at full 24bit resolution? I really need to isolate this and understand where the problem lies.
Thanks for any help from the gang here.
