How to Play Audio Via USB

Unread post by mmcglynn » Sun Apr 22, 2018 3:06 am

I have a compatible amplifier connected to the NAS via USB. I can see that the NAS recognizes the amplifier.

I literally cannot follow the instructions. When I play an audio file, it plays through my computer's speakers. How do I get the audio to play through the USB port?

This is what the documentation says:

"To play music via different devices, you can select your desired output device from the My computer/USB speakers/[Media renderer name] (indicating the device you have been streaming music to) drop-down menu on the control bar, and add songs to individual devices."

So WHERE is this menu? Select where?

The move to the new "community" is just another example of Synology not caring about customer wishes and [Please control your language] us all in the behind. I'll be leaving this forum and NOT be joining the new "community". It was a fun ride. Please don't expect any replies from me because the e-mail address associated with my Synology account will be disabled. Goodbye and thanks for the great time while it lasted.
