HP MediaSmart Server: iTunes Album Artwork? RRS feed

  • Question

  • How can I get the iTunes album artwork to appear on the HP MediaSmart TVs (the TV screen has a place to show album artwork which makes me think it is part of the DLNA/uPnP spec) ?

     

    Thanks,

    Rob

  • You can't, as far as I know. iTunes embeds album artwork in a tag in each file (so if you have an album with 20 tracks, the artwork is embedded in all 20 files); this is a non-standard method of handling the album artwork. That assumes the HP MediaSmart TV consumes the UPnP shares. If it's a DAAP consumer instead, album artwork support was turned off in Firefly quite a while ago, because it causes a bunch of problems. At this point if you turn it on, Firefly will die within a few seconds of starting up.
