This has most likely been asked before but this forum is pretty big...

I have a 2TB Buffalo LinkStation Pro which i am transferring all my music onto - this is connected directly to my router and wakes on LAN should I switch on either of the pc's in the house.

What I want is a media streamer that will pull media files (iTunes and MP3 formats are on the NAS box) direct from this NAS box (without a pc running in the background) and play back through the hi-fi.

I'm obviously looking at the Squeezebox hardware (Touch or Duet) and would like to know if what I want to do is achievable before I part with the readies...

Thanks for any help you guys can give and apologies if this has been asked elesewhere on the forum.

Gavin.

You need to have Squeezebox Server running on the Linkstation (which it may be good at doing, or not, or anything in between).
Check out the forum section for third party hardware for information about this kind of setup, I expect there to be some threads about your model of NAS.

Cheers - I'll go and have or look - or most likely re-post if searching doesn't flag anything.
