    Some ripping tools do that automatically (example: dbpoweramp).
    Thank you for your suggestion. I know of this option of some upnp-server programs to offer an image file with a specific name as cover image to the upnp-client (the Streamium).
    However, the main drawbacks are:
    - dependent on the upnp-server possibilities
    - only one image per folder, not per individual file

    My wish is for support of images that are embedded inside the flac files itself, just as the Streamium supports images embedded inside mp3-files (but see also my next wish, #5).

    From what I remember (I maybe wrong), the ID tag standard for FLAC does not support track / folder image. It does not follow the ID3 tagging used in MP3 which is more complete.

    Hence the album art needs to be in Folder.jpg which is used by most players/servers/control points which means FLAC cannot support track specific image. This is not a NP3900 or even a server issue, this is more a FLAC standard issue.

    Pardon me, but you are mistaken. The FLAC standard definitely allows embedding of images in its metatdata. See http://flac.sourceforge.net/format.h..._block_picture for the specification. I have numerous flac files with embedded pictures, which are neatly shown by players like Rhytmbox.
    Hence the album art needs to be in Folder.jpg which is used by most players/servers/control points which means FLAC cannot support track specific image. This is not a NP3900 or even a server issue, this is more a FLAC standard issue.
    As said before, using an image file in the folder which will be offered to the client as album art is an attribute of the upnp SERVER. Some servers require the filename to be Folder.jpg, others require it to have the name cover.jpg or COVER.JPG, and some servers don't support it at all. So no standard there.

    Both FLAC and MP3 support embedding comparable metadata in the file, including images. So, if the NP3500 supports displaying an embedded image from an MP3 file, why not the same when it is a FLAC file?

    Missing an Alarm Off/Snooze HW button on the DS1100.

    I understand that the only way to turn off an alarm is to unlock the iPhone and press the Alarm Off or Snooze buttons on the screen, and while this helps wake me up , it is cumbersome when one is tired.

    Just reaching out and touching a HW button would make it a more usable alarm clock.

    Philips Harmony HiFi-System DCB7005/10 Dock for iPod/iPhone/iPad, DAB+

    I'm quite content with this system. Only two things that I miss, is a memory function with using the USB direct play. When I listen to music on a stick, turn the DCB7005/10 off and want to continue listening I have to search for the last titel. It's quite uncomfortable when you got 300 songs in one folder.
    I'd wish the system would remember the last titel I've heard and would start the next time with the same titel.

    Second thing is the sleep function. I'd wish it would be possible to program less then 15 minutes, perhaps 10.

    If this could be fixed in an update, I'd be really happy!

    Suggestions for improvement of NP3700/12:
    - Add internet radio stations locally, not on the philips website
    - add web interface, to get direct online access to the NP3700/12 via web-browser (through IP address)
    - Web Interface for editing favorites lists, add new radio stations and so on

    Note: I didn't bought a NP3700/12 yet, but as far as I read the Manual, these features are missing at the moment.

    Some suggestions for Streamium:
    - Allow multi-room with a source other than the hard drive (with a NAS for example),
    - Extending services to other online supplier that Spotify which causes it to have a Facebook account (how awful),
    - Allow alphanumeric search in the Media Library,
    - Allow to change the rating in the Media Library,
    - Allow the display of the entire cover (without texts).

    As the HTS9140 does not have an HDMI input, perhaps a way to play files with DTS-HD or other 24 bits sound through DNLA from a mediaplayer or other capable device?

    I just bought a MCI900, which is wonderful device supporting lots of sources and formats in a beautiful design and with amazing sound. That being said, it has a fairly basic playing system, lacking some advanced options I consider mandatory for such a device:

    1. Gapless when playing tracks of the same album in order
    2. Crossfade when shuffling and playing tracks of different albums

    There are other functions which are maybe harder to implement, but could improve user experience a lot:

    1. Replaygain, hopefully both track and album mode
    2. Album art download (for files and cd's)
    3. Lyrics download (for files and cd's)
    4. Last.fm and libre.fm support

    I really hope that you can at least implement some of those. It's a shame I have to plug my Cowon D2 with Rockbox inside to play through the MCI900 to get this somewhat simple stuff.

    I really wish there were more multiroom capabilities between the devices. This feature seems to require an MCiXXX, which I havent got (yet).

    But it would be great if I could stream the input from AUX or the iPhone DCK 3060 docking station to the other streamium devices.

    Also, an app that can act as multiroom controller would be great, managing different playlists on different devices throughout the house. Imagine having a tablet that combines the Music from NAS, tablet and MCi harddrive and sends it to different devices for a party. Id even pay for that

    I really hope that they have plans doing so. It is a perfect addition to such entertainment.

    Is there someone from Philips really following this thread?

    Anyway some more suggestions:

    1. There should be an option for sleep function to turn the device off after the current song has finished

    2. The navigation system from HD badly needs an easy way to build a playlist. There is currently no way to play all songs from a given genre (or genres); there is even no option to play all songs from a folder (in a recursive mode). I hoped this was available in the MyRemote app, but unfortunelly I was wrong.
    The only way I've found so far to play just the songs that I want instead of the complete collection is to build a playlist in m3u format into my laptop, which is really painfull. This playlists also need to be redone each time new files are added.

    There is one suggestion:

    It is necessary to give possibility to users to create different folders in which they can place the favorite radio stations from the Internet.
    These folders can be created, for example, in the tab My media or in the new tab My Favorites or My Streams.

    For example, that is it is done on the site of http://reciva.com (see att.)
