Managing your Music Server

The innuOS Dashboard

The innuOS Dashboard in the centerpiece to manage your the music library on your innuOS server. It's a full web-based application you can use directly from your tablet, smartphone or computer using a modern browser.

In order to access the innuOS Dashboard on your music server, we have implemented a network discovery service called My Innuos that will automatically discover any innuOS devices on your network. To access My Innuos, just do the following steps:

1. Ensure your device (tablet, smartphone or computer) is connected to your home network, either wirelessly or via wired connection to your router.

2. Open the browser on your device and navigate to my.innuos.com

My Innuos

My Innuos will now show all innuOS devices connected on your network, whether they are online or not and their respective IP numbers (if online). There are also some quick features implemented on each device card, such as the ability to shutdown the server or turn off the front LED light (Zen/Zenith models only).

To access the innuOS Dashboard, just click on desired device and the innuOS Dashboard will come up.

The Dashboard is composed by 7 different areas:

CD Ripper - This area will show the album data of the CD currently being ripped and as well as the ripping progress. If in Assisted Mode, you'll also be able to edit the CD data before the ripping process starts. More details in the Ripping CDs section.

Import -  This area allows you to import music from external sources into your innuOS Server, such as Zen Mk.I Music Servers, 3rd Party Music Servers, USB drives, NAS drives or from your computer. The import process uses an intelligent rules-based engine to automatically organise and de-duplicate your music into the music library and separating non-conforming files into an Unsorted folder that can be later organised manually. More details in the Importing your Music section.

Quarantine - This area will contain any ripped CDs that need your attention before they can be integrated into the music library. These include unknown CDs, potential duplicates in your Music Library or CDs ripped while offline. You'll then be able to play the album directly on your mobile device, refresh data from the CD databases or delete the album. More details in the Correcting Album Data section.

Music Library - The Music Library section will allow you to browse and edit your existing Music Library, including album covers, ensuring you keep your music organised and with correct metadata. You can navigate the Music Library by Artist, Album or Genre and any editing done will automatically update the Music Library on all your music devices including Music Streamers and Wireless Speakers. More details in the Editing your Music Library section.

Backup - The Backup section will allow you to backup or restore your Music Library and innuOS settings to either an external USB hard drive or to a NAS device on your network. The Backup procedure is incremental, meaning it will only copy the new music and settings since the last backup, and can be configured to automatic. Automatic Backup is based on storage increase rather than time-based. This ensures that backups are more often when you add more music to your library and less often otherwise. More details in the Backing Up your Music Library section.

System - This section will show you the current system information such as the server serial number, IP number and MAC address and allows you to shutdown or restart the server. More details in the Checking the System Information section.

Settings - This section will show all the innuOS server settings such Updates, Music Player settings or setting up your streaming services.
