Streaming Music, Movies, and Pictures

The Media Server supports playback of videos, music and pictures from any UPnP AV (Universal Plug
and Play Audio Visual) network media players, such as Playstation3, Windows Media Player, or Xbox
360.
You can play back all your media files from your individual home computers by enabling
on your ix2. You can also connect USB mass storage devices (such as your iPod, mp3 player, or USB
drive) to your ix2 and directly stream files through the device, or access media files through a networked
media player. Below are two examples of how to set up the following media players:
iTunes
Xbox 360
The procedures shown below are intended as examples. Your media player or version may
operate differently. It is recommended that you refer to your media player documentation for
instructions on how to add a network device.

Example: Setting up iTunes

1.
Locate the source directory of your iTunes media content.
2.
Drag, or copy, your existing media content to a Share that has media sharing enabled.
3.
When you open the iTunes Library, iTunes will display all of the media content from the ix2.

Example: Setting up Xbox 360

1.
Connect your Xbox 360 to your TV and to the same local network as your ix2.
2.
Navigate to the Media Tab in Xbox 360 and select a media-enabled Share.
3.
Select Computer from the options menu.
4.
Click Yes, Continue when asked if you have downloaded and installed media sharing software
on your computer, since the ix2 device comes preconfigured with this software.
5.
Select ix2 from the list of names. You should now see all the unsecured media content on your
device.
