Sansa Connect File Access

I had been using a laptop to access music files on my desktop computer to play them elsewhere in the house, either over the laptop itself or over my home stereo (headphone jack to the now-unused tape deck input jacks).  I thought it would be convenient to have a smaller device to do this, and thought the Connect would be just the thing to do it.  But, unfortunately, the Connect won’t do it – it can’t access shared files on a home network in real time, and can only play files stored on the Connect itself.  PLEASE update the firmware to allow this.
