Music - Android Frontend + NMT Backend?
Hi, whats the slickest solution to set up a Music Jukebox with Android front end, that runs on NMT.

Ideally
- No intermediate PC or can use a server application running on Linux based NAS.
- Very slick GUI - playlists , shuffle, simple search.
- No need for TV to be on to navigate.

The GUI is most important, it must be easy to build up playlists whilst playing etc etc.

Oversight: Jukebox | FeedTime: Automatic nzbs

RE: Music - Android Frontend + NMT Backend?
Hi Lordy,

i use an Android Apk called 'BubbleUPnP' to controll all music from all network devices
and use the c-200 as render (playing) device.

I think it's not exactly what you are looking for but it's worth a try.

+ save playlists (only 1 or 2 in free version, but enough to find out, if it fits your needs)
+ search thru your media
i think it's even got a coverflow (if covers are saved near the albums)

C-200 @50'' Panasonic TH-50PX8EA
(BR, 2,5''HDD 500GB, LAN)
A-110 @42'' LG LED-TV
(3,5''HDD 1TB, LAN)
CH3SNAS 1TB+500GB, DNS-323 2x2TB,
ACER WHS H-340 1TB
!! VOTE FOR !! multiple switchable external subtitles (srt)

I use Mpdroid for android and mpd server running in the c-200. I can do what you are asking for.
Any doubt, contact me.

RE: Music - Android Frontend + NMT Backend?
Hi Lordy. I am curious of what solution you chose in the end? I need something wich will enable me to start music both from a windows laptop and my android phone on myA-210. My previous experience with mpd on my old a-100 is not so good...
