    I'm hoping that while Model S is parked, charging, in the garage and connected to my home network, I'll be able to see the hard drive and manage the content. Primarily music, but playlist support is key like .m3u Playlist - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Anyone know if this will be supported? It might be assumed, but I thought I'd ask since it would be a big miss if the hard drive was not accessible from my home network or standard playlist support was not available. :eek:

    I'm curious as well. Would make management super easy. Proper security though I hope.

    It would be cool if it was DLNA compliant.

    Just some decent way to load up music would be nice. On the JVC 40meg drive in the Roadster it was terrible. Even better if it syncs via wifi. What I'd really like on wifi is to auto download my favorite podcasts.

    I'm hoping it's as simple as just uploading my Playlist since it's always managed on my iPhone anyway?

    No iTunes like synching please. I would love to see basic file sharing (SMB), FTP or DLNA

    The problem with such open file sharing arrangements is that someone with technical prowess can take advantage of it to potentially introduce malware into the system. What is most convenient for us become a most convenient asset of access for them. That cannot happen in such a critically vital component as the Model S computer system. Granted, they have likely isolated or compartmentalized much, it would likely take some additional software engineering to assure that malware could not be introduced by open file sharing constructs.

    Yep. I've said it in the past; I hope Tesla keeps an eye on the security aspect of things. OTA updates, remotely monitoring your cars etc. All that's going out over some protocol and it would be disastrous for that to become compromised. Would give Wardriving a whole a new meaning.

    Most of the current systems just let you copy files from a USB device or SD card. Works fine.

    I would say it would be a huge mistake not to cater to the masses and offer iTunes syncing! Sure, add other formats as well, but don't leave the majority feeling they were forgotten.

    Agreed. Just so long as there is some security involved. I agree that we should also have some connectivity to other devices and support multiple formats, but it's nigh impossible to keep everyone happy. It's amazing how many people might protest and call this the most ridiculous application of in-car entertainment, simply because they cannot get their ogg vorbis tracks to play!
