OK, I feel a bit ignorant in asking this, but I'm trying to determine if I should use DLNA with media monkey or not.
I have a home network (2 laptops, 1 desktop) and just purchased a WD MyBook Live for data storage. It's a DLNA server and MM (I have Gold, if that matters) sees it and my music stored there. My plan originally was simply to point MM to the music folders and have MM scan them and build a library that way (like I did with my shared HD before), but now that I see it as a media server, it seems that perhaps I should use it that way. (I guess I'm looking at using MM to access a server not to be the server.)
I guess I'm wondering what I gain (or loose) by using DLNA versus simply pointing MM to the folder on the drive over the network. Can I still sync my music to my portable devices? Can I still build smart playlists in MM?
I looked at the 'Getting started' links, but they didn't really seem to help. If there's a DLNA for Dummies' link that I missed, please point me to it and I'll read up.
