At the moment I can listen to the FLAC ripped cd's on my laptop, on a UPNP enabled M&J WLD+211T net player. I can also watch downloaded movies stored on same laptop on a DLNA enabled Yamaha BD477S blu ray player. Thinking ahead, laptop storage is going to become an issue in the not too distant future. As I see it, the WD My Cloud would offer an inexpensive solution. However, I'm not 100% on a couple of points. Firstly. am I right in thinking that no additional software would be necessary as the Yamaha and M&J both read and play stored files? And secondly, at the same time, would I be able to listen to music while the Mrs is watching her chick flicks? Confirmation or suggestions on my thoughts would be appreciated.
