  1. Thanks for the suggestions Bob and Xscaper ... I'll give those a (curious) look ...
  2. Yes Xscaper ... this seems to be the consensus ... I just need to find the time to bumble my way through trying to wangle the metadata ... for potentially thousands of files. And I already have so many other things to consume my scant free time ... who knew retirement was going to be so busy 🤔
  3. Yes, this is all I want to do ... I have network cable connecting the router, CXN and Notebook pc with music albums and JRiver installed (which worked just fine played directly to my USB DAC) ... maybe JRiver can do what Roon can do? ... I was assuming (falsely perhaps), going by the considerable hype associated with the CXN V2, that additional software wouldn't be required. And I guess that's true once the streamer is fed EXACTLY what it requires in terms of file location and metadata.
  4. ... which makes me wonder why Cambridge has not integrated a similar capability with there Streammagic software? ... JRiver appears to do it ... just drag and drop any album folder into the designated music storage folder and it all gets sorted/presented in proper sequence ... Although I have yet to see it in action I expect Roon does the same.
  5. Thanks Bob ... you understood just fine ... apparently tag editing can be done in Windows 10 ... not sure about Windows 7 which I'm using on the notebook where the files are stored.
  6. thanks Whipped ... so what about wired network connected files on a computer? ... "sees" and plays them too? ... in proper sequence? sort of like JRiver did from my notebook?
  7. ... thanks for chiming in Justin ... just for the not so digital savvy amongst us could you briefly explain what Roon is and how it could be used to solve my/our, local/networked music playing problems with the CXN ...
  8. Thanks Bob and Kaynin ... I will have a play around with your suggestions ... but I must admit I'm seriously contemplating selling the CXN and reverting back to the notebook laptop and JRiver ... so much less faffing around ...
  9. Please excuse the lack of digital knowledge, but ... I'm not sure how to "check the metadata" ... and, how can metadata be edited?
  10. Thanks for your thoughts doogie44 ... hmmmm ... this is not encouraging ...
  11. Thanks Kaynin .... The album is a HDTracks album download complete with a PDF file containing album art etc. It is supplied as a folder named "Album Artist" ... within that folder is another folder containing the actual FLAC files called "Album Name" and the PDF file. The FLAC files are labelled numerically: 01 - File name 02 - File name 03 - File name etc ... Are you saying that for each and every FLAC file in each of my over 500 albums I'm going to need to label them as you are suggesting?
