Most likely, it will be an itunes fix, as there are many NAS mfr's involved with this, but only one itunes revision.

No, there unlikely will be a "fix" in iTunes! The NAS mfr's have to fix this feature! Donīt tell your customers that someone else is guilty and has to fix this. Buffalo has to take action in order to fix this!

 

Buffalo, as many other NAS mfr's build on a software which got not maintained for more than 2 years! Not only that it is build on a reverse engineered protocol - it is simply outdated!

Well it seems Apple have "fixed" it by updating iTunes.  I can now play music from my linkstation's shared iTunes library from iTunes 10.0.1.22

 

If Apple disabled the feature in iTunes 10 why should it be up to other manufacturers to fix it?

Well said - Apple released the fix as I suggested they probably would.

Lucky Buffalo!

Apple will not disable it, they probably change it. Manufacturers should invest in fixing the software they are build on, and this is not iTunes it is the mediaserver called Firefly. This peace of software got not updated for more than 2 years. In other words it is not maintained any longer and the feature is ought to break.

Luck was not involved with this issue - Apple was working with Buffalotech (we opened a technical incident with Apple) on the issue and an update resolved this issue.
