On my main iMac, I've got a huge iTunes library which is shared with Home Sharing.
I use my MacBook much more frequently, and I have basically no music on it. I would instead like to direct iTunes to always open/play from the main Home Shared library if it's available.
There doesn't seem to be a setting to do this. Instead, I have to select it in iTunes whenever the computer is restarted, or the iMac goes to sleep. Is it possible to find a work-around?
I have looked around, and there are some people having resembling issues with their NAS music libraries (example: How can I get iTunes Library to stay pointed to my NAS?).
If my issue is effectively the same issue as automatically mounting an AFP-mounted NAS iTunes Library, there at least doesn't seem to be a consensus on how to solve this issue in 2016?
Maybe something like an AppleScript would be a solution, if there is no conventional solution. I would hope that it was possible to make iTunes look for the remote Library instead of the local one.
