Hi Spoon -
I am a beta tester for PS Audio's PerfectWave Dac/Bridge and their new app tagNplay. I also have a Linn Akurate DS that I control with ChorusDSHD. I am using the latest beta of Asset UPnP on my WHS.

In ChorusDSHD there is a free form search window that I can use, for example, if I click on album artist and then "all album artists", I can type in an artist and see all albums tagged that way. Same goes for "tracks", "artist", etc...keyword search works if I click on the "all option"

I also get the option of the "Advanced Search" items (album by release, album by artist, compilation, etc.)

With tagNplay, I have the "advanced search" items, but not the ability to do a similar free form search as I can on ChorusDSHD.

PSA is saying that this is a limitation of Asset UPnP, which seems weird to me since I can do this search with ChorusDSHD.

Your thoughts?

Thanks.

There are different ways of doing search, Chorus must be reading all the entries and doing the search its self, whilst PSA must be doing a UPnP Search which as they correctly state is not currently implemented in Asset.
