Re: Is there any way to make my shared library the default one instead of the phone's library?
I did break down and subscribe to Match but it doesn't seem to do much of anything? I probably need to play with it more, but I don't think that was the answer to my issue unless I'm missing something...

Of course it means either having duplicates, or using yet another storage medium to store what I actually want to listen to, and just have the MyCloud be the "master list" of sorts. The downside to that looks to be that I can't create playlists in this manner, so I would have to have a library dedicated to that location... seems redundant to me...
If I lost you somewhere in there, the way I accomplished what I did was to map the folders as drive letters on my PC.
