    i have recently decided to try streaming. I have 2 houses. In house one, I have a PC running Windows 10 and a Grace Digital Tuner with a media player in it. I can stream files from my PC to my Grace Digital.
    In house two I also have a PC running Windows 10. I also have a Grace Digital Tuner there and a Grace Digital radio. Both have media players. Both recognize the PC server. However, when I attempt to access files in either, e.g. "Artists" I get an "Empty" message. Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?
    I am thinking of getting a better digital player than the Grace, but am concerned that I have a streaming problem. Any help in a non-technical manner would be appreciated.

    Your files don't have metadata. What format are you attempting to stream?

    Primarily ALAC. Perhaps a few of my files are FLAC.

    Eliminate variables one by one.

    Use free software like Tag & Rename to confirm that the tracks are tagged. Typically, that is performed upon ripping CDs or comes with commercially available downloads in many format.
