These instructions are for Windows computers but with few exceptions, they are the same for Mac versions of Jriver. This tutorial applies to both Bridge 1 and Bridge II.
First step is to make sure your computer is connected, via an ethernet cable, to your home router. Second step is to make sure the PerfectWave Bridge is connected, via Ethernet cable, to that same home router.
Click on OK to return to the main TOOLS, OPTIONS, MEDIA NETWORK screen, and under ADVANCED make sure the following options are all selected:
Near the bottom of the page is another ADVANCED under VIDEO options. Click on it and put a check mark in DLNA and DLNA EXTRA.
If you have a Direct Stream DAC then also select BITSTREAM DSD. Click OK.
At this point you should be able to see your Bridge appear in the left hand column under Playing Now. Select your Bridge to play to it.
Right click Bridge in Now Playing, select the last option, DLNA Controller Options, and select both Ignore Transport Events and Disable SetNext Support.
More settings and library management.
THIS SHOULD LOAD YOUR LIBRARY.
Your library should be visible and is continuing to build the album art.
Use JRemote to control the Bridge and JRiver music library choices.
To configure Zoneswitch (Recommended if you always want to default to playing thru the Bridge):
Click on Player, Zone, Zoneswitch and Add, then Edit Search with this Wizard. This is highly configurable and there are many possibilities, but to start with, you can simply create a rule that says “MEDIA TYPE “ “IS” “AUDIO”, click on OK, then select the Bridge in the Play in This Zone field and, if desired, in the STOP PLAYBACK IN THESE ZONES field select PLAYER and any additional zones you do NOT want to send audio to.
