Install something that streams media files onto your Linkstation
;Twonkyvision I use, I think slimserver xan be done but may be
harder to do.
So, eventually you want to have all music on Linkstation and be able
to use Soundbridge without having to turn pc on? Windows Media
Conect streams the files to the Soundbridge but only sees the files
on your pc (thats what its installed on afterll)
Twonkyvision has a trial version I think you can install on
Linkstation to see if you like it, the full version is only a couple
Come back if you need any more help
