I can play single tracks, including FLAC, just fine; however, I cannot play a complete album - playback stops after the first track. Other than creating playlists (for hundreds of albums) - is there anything I can do?
Change the detected Media Receiver (http://MBWE's
IP:9000/config then click Media Receivers under Advanced Setup on the left) from the default "Generic Media Receiver" to "Generic Music Only Receiver" then click Save Changes at the top. On the left, click Maintenance, then Restart Server at the top.
After Twonky has restarted, on the Onkyo's remote, while in NET mode, push the white MUSIC/REPEAT button until you see ALL and the loop icon in the lower-right corner of the display. (ALL + icon repeats the entire directory structure until you tell it to stop; FOLDER + icon repeats just the current folder until stopped; 1 in a circle + icon = repeat just the selected track until stopped; no loop icon means play the current track then stop).
In my experience, changing the detected type to Generic Music Only Reciever also made it show the Artist and Album tags (next to the i and o icons, respectively) and, below the playing time slider, the FLAC's bitrate and frequency. I do not remember seeing those data when the default Generic Media Receiver type was selected.
The TX-NR807 usually does not display the embedded image file over the 'notes' icon, though a box typically shows up there after 15 seconds or so. I'm not sure if that's a transcoding or a size issue (the box is small, maybe 150x150 pixels, and most of the images I put in mine are scans of the covers resized to 600x600 or larger)... I would manually try some of the other 'detected' types there (e.g. DENON), but Generic Music Only made the 'play all' work for my TX-NR807, so I left it at that. I usually watch video files using my Oppo BD player, served up by TVersity (mainly because I'm still waiting for the clients.db structures to show up here).
