How do you set up a 'virtual path'? I have a similar situation whereby PA music folder selection doesn't appear to extend to locations on the network - my NAS, for example. You said "...copy your music into a more logical location (in a folder at the root level of your SD Card for example)?...". Are you seriously suggesting that a potentially huge music collection is more logically located on a mobile device as opposed to a NAS, for example?
I have my Google TV connected to a wired ethernet network connection. Using Google app file managers, I can find and play movies and music. So, how can I play files from my music library, on my Network Attached Server, using PA? TIA for your assistance.
