After reading on this forum I realised iTunes records the Playlist in the file 'iTunes Music Library.xml'
Even though I run iTunes of my NAS and I've conolidated my iTunes libraries this file is located on my PC not on the NAS. So I copied it to my NAS Music folder and now I can access the playlists!
Yay ... sort of.
The problem with this fix is I will have to repeat the file copy every time I change iTunes playlists as the master is on PC not NAS.
Hoping someone can offer a nifty solution ... ?
