  1. The first sentence would be the understatement of the century! My computer savviness goes as far as turning the thing on and off unaided. As I wouldn't know a VPN if I fell over one, I'd say the answer to the second sentence is no, unless one snuck in while I wasn't paying attention - and if it did, would I even recognise it?
  2. The computer (a laptop) communicates wirelessly with the router. The firmware on the Majik is the latest. Thank you for that explanation.
  3. I did, but no joy. I might see if it's any good as a frisbee - it's certainly no good as a Majik controller.
  4. After some general fiddling around, I found that I could make it work by controlling it from the computer, but not from the iPad, which stubbornly remains "waiting for rooms". I guess we simply forget the iPad. Thanks everyone for your suggestions.
  5. That's the one I have - it is lovely insofar as it looks nice, but I find it a peculiar thing and I never use it.
  6. Checked on Kazoo - "playlist is empty". It is now "waiting for rooms" - even though it's been sitting beside the Majik for the last 15 minutes. All rather puzzling (and frustrating).
  7. OK, here you're on the frontiers of my knowledge. To the best of my knowledge, I don't have a "playlist". "Playlist" to me means a series of tracks chosen for sequential playing, but what you're saying seems to indicate that the playing of individual tracks eventually accumulates to a maximum, necessitating a clearing out. Is that correct?
  8. Thanks, I'll try that, although I confess I find Linn's Majik DS remote an odd, illogical thing.
  9. As much the brilliance of what goes with the music as the music itself:
  10. When starting - nothing ever loads. Haven't tried looking in Konfig.
  11. I have an oldish Majik DS used with a Synology DS213Air and controlled with an iPad. On recently switching on, I got the above message on Kazoo on the iPad. I switched everything off and on again, but still the same. The NAS appears to be OK (I can play stuff on it via the computer), so the problem appears to lie at the Linn end of the business. Any idea what's wrong and how I can fix it?
  12. A great site to explore: http://allofbach.com/en/
  13. Your second piece is one of the collection dances by Tylman Susato. David Munrow and the Early Music Consort of London made some very good recordings of this music: You can hear that Susato piece at 4:24.
  14. The finest version of "Pines" I've ever heard is this old Karajan one: I know of no equal to its relentless building of tension in "Pines of the Appian Way" as the legion marches in triumph down it.
