What I know :

Minimserver is very good and fast, while requiring more technical skills to get the most of it. Caveat: it is not a photo media server which prevents using it also for artist’s image self management that would be leveraged by the Moment when in Expert mode considering that Gracenote is no longer used by B&O to fetch artist images. Not an issue if you are not in Expert mode where unavailable artist’image is replace by an album cover.

Various NAS media server (Synology, QNAP, WD) seem to work according to some forum users.

PLEX does not work.

There are surely other depending on the platform you are using (Windows, OSX, Unix/Linux, NASes, etc...)

Thanks. I have an iMac. So I need something compatible with that. The problem with Twonky is they went bankrupt and there are no software updates. I’m having problems with my iTunes playlists

Minimserver works on OSX

I think Minimserver manages m3u playlists, so would require iTunes playlist export, not as integrated as Twonky was ... when working

I don't know if the Moment would see playlists exposed by Minimserver, never tested, but I see no reason why not.

Thanks. Minimserver requires Java. I can't download Java.

Quite extraordinary! You would be the 1st (?)

Why so?

Apple says it’s not trusted & high risk for virus & will not let me download. I downloaded FireStream yesterday and it is working perfectly. All my music shows/plays that are in my iTunes playlists. Thanks for all your help.

You can download it without problems! Just did it. But when installing you get a typical Apple message.

What Apple does: "It's not an Apple app-store item", so it says it can't be trusted. But can't it be trusted????

To install it anyway, right click the Java 8 update 251 icon and choose "Open". If you find it trustworthy you can open and install Java.

 

NB: do you know how many devices running Java? Do a search..........

Today I found that when I listen to any Deezer album, the Moment systematically adds « Solitude » track by Duke Ellington at the end of the album tracks ....

I opened a case with B&O, waiting for an answer

..... I feel alone!

Is it a good idea to buy a second hand Moment for this:

- Listen to the radio

- Listen to music stored in a Beomaster 5

i don’t have deezer or spotify. The Moment could replace a Beosound 5

Thanks

I can’t but help feel very disappointed with the Moment and B&O and would now be very reluctant and wary to ever spend money on a similar product. Pattern play still not working and the general use and stability between the tablet and dock is atrocious.

I recall the dealers gently guiding me to other products but what they were actually doing was steering me well away from the Moment when I enquired about it. I should have read between the lines and picked up on this cue but like some crazy B&O nutter I was blinkered to their subtle steering. What a waste of money and all the hours trying to get it to work properly. It’s left such a bitter taste that sometimes I just want to throw it away and forget about it. It’s presence now serves as an alarm in the morning to play radio. A glorified alarm clock (when it works).

Present: BL90, Core, BL6000, CD7000, Beogram 7000, Essence Remote.

Past: BL1, BL2, BL8000, BS9000, BL5, BC2, BS5, BV5, BV4-50, Beosystem 3, BL3, DVD1, Beoremote 4, Moment.

I concord with you! I just wrote about this in Steve’s Post. I can’t understand why they didn’t get Software Gurus to help them to get it running! Big Waste of Money! The same as Beo6 Remote, they just left behind to sit for nothing! And that was about $600! The Qualitative is gone out of their Menu!
