    needed 1300 , so i uninstalled firefly thru windows,installed new version
    now can’t ip to conf menu, also i read the transcoding how to on wiki but i
    don’t understand how to add the addtional scripts, where do i put them.

    Can you actually see the files on the musica? Can you mount the musica library as a drive letter or something?

    I’m asking because I don’t know how the device works, and can’t really find much information on the net about what features it has.

    Musica (Olives.Inc) same as Hifidelio wireless MC( Hifidelio.net) is an audio server with 160g HD ,4-autosening ethernet ports+ 54g wireless, it uses UPnP a/v & Bonjour protocols. Without config iTunes and Firefly show up on Musica, it imports Firefly’s library & iTunes library & plays ,
    mp3, or Aiff,or wav’s. The problem Musica’s library except for 3 or 4
    mp3 for test are all Flac . What I want to do is use Firefly to serve wav’s
    to iTunes for playback only. Musica supports playback/record
    in mp3, wav,aiff, pcm, and flac. The web browser only supports creating
    playlist & changing meta data only, there is also a telnet option but i dont have the updated sw, Also I update firefly to 1301, i used windows add/remove, should i have just deleted the entire firefly folder cause now
    i can’t acess the admin pg to config. also i read some where that the musica will serve roku SB with very little config. Tks , Tks

    The only way to do that is if you can see the actual flac files. If you can map a drive or something and see the actual .flac files. If not, then no, can’t do it.
