  • To show what I am talking about here lets look at what I have gone off the deep end with here.
    {Can you say TOTAL GEEK-A-RAMA-HERE???} :D
    I have 11 internet capable devices in two rooms in my apartment.
    My Modem,Router and a Five port Switch are in the bedroom along with my two channel,network capable stereo.
    My Eight Port Switch is in the Living Room in the Home Theater system.
    My Arris/Motorola Surfboard Modem is connected to my Cisco Four Port Router.
    Connected to the router is as follows:
    My computer
    A Western Digital Network backup hard drive
    A Netgear Five Port gigabit Switch
    A very long CAT-5e cable going out to the living room.
    Hooked up to the Five Port Switch are:
    Integra receiver
    Sony Playstation 3 Slim
    TiVo mini

    At the other end of the long CAT-5e cable is another Netgear Eight Port Gigabit Switch,which has the following connected to it:
    An Onkyo Pre/Pro
    An Oppo Blu-ray player
    A TiVo Roamio
    A D-Link Wireless Access Point (*this is how my phone and tablet can tap into my network*)
    The Router assigns each of these devices an IP address which is how they can talk to each other and to the internet.

    If you think that you can-say for example plug the Oppo Blu-ray Player and the Western Digital Hard Drive into the Netgear Switch and have them communicate with each other,without the Cisco Router assigning them an IP address.I say try it and let me know how it works out.

    Not trying to be an arrogant arse,just being honest.

    I am 99% sure that you can use foobar to play DSF files.

    You absolutely can have an entire network run on only a switch. You assign each device a static IP address within the private network ranges (10.x.x.x, 192.168.x.x, 172.16.x.x), you don't need a router with DHCP to assign an automatic IP address and subnet mask.

    @Nightfall
    How do you assign the static IP address if you don't have a router?
    There is no browser menu for you to access via the Switch.

    Depends on the PC or device.

  • It looks like you have to have an internet connected Computer and a Router along with the various devices in order to do this and then remove the Router.

    You can have a network without a router. I am no geek but I had my computers networked long before I ever heard of a router.

    A router is not required. Ever. At all.

  • Can you connect multiple devices to the internet at the same time without a router?

    The latest Foobar may already have extension built in, if not you download foobar and add the extension

    There are a lot of open discussions support for foobar on the net

    If you know how to assign static IP addresses and have multiple computers talking to each other without a router you are HARDLY a Moron!!!!

    That kind of thing is WAAAAAAYYY beyond what most average people can do
    (*and if you don't believe me-have you tried showing this kind of stuff to the average person??*) :Do:);)
  • So you plug your Modem into the Switch and plug each device into the Switch after assigning a static IP address and it all works?

    Cool beans,but a lot of work that a Router obviates.

    It still would be nice to convert them to FLAC if that is possible.
  • DSD files are higher resolution than the type of files that FLAC usually deals with (*up to 24 bit/192 khz*) They are even higher resolution than a DXD file (*24/382*)
    So if you do find a way to convert then you will be significantly reducing their resolution.

    The Serial Messenger Block is part of Windows.
    If you have a Windows computer running Windows Media Player 11 or higher you can stream to your Oppo from your computer over the SMB. DLNA doesn't support DSD streaming.

    What Type of signal is the oppo getting from the DLNA/WiFi?
  • The SMB works ovwr WiFi as well btw. The DLNA supports HiRez audio up to 24/192
  • The Serial Messenger Block is part of Windows.

    It's SERVER MESSAGING Block.
