Importing your Music

Importing from a Music Server


Import from a Music will allow you to automatically import music from an existing compatible music server. Depending on the music server, innuOS can import either directly from the music server or, in case you just have a backup, from a USB backup drive. The current music servers and methods are currently supported:

- AVA Rip-N-Play - Direct and from USB Backup Drive
- HFX or RipNAS - Direct only
- Zen Mini / Zen / Zen XL Mk.I - Direct and from Backup Drive
- Other Vortexbox-based Music Server - Direct and from Backup Drive

Before you start

If you still have your music server and your innuOS has a "Streamer" port, we recommend connecting your music server directly to this port. Otherwise you can simply connect both your existing music server and the innuOS Server via a wired ethernet connection to your network. If you want to use a USB backup drive instead, please connect it to a USB port or the Backup port on your innuOS server.
