Hack #4: using function ‘Follow-Me’

with one comment

To activate a function ‘Follow-Me’ to transfer media from one room to another usually is used mobile phone via Bluetooth or geek remote FiireChief. But you can avail oneself of that feature without those equipment. Start playing some movie in the room where you’re now. Then go to media floorplan page and click by letter ‘F’. It should change its color to red. After that on the Orbiter choose desired room where you’re going to move. Note, that room should have a configured media director (MD)! The media will be transferred to that room immediately. So, when you rich it you continue watch your favorite show.
