sorry, that's not going to happen because they're playing from different

sources -- http streamers and boxen (real or soft) can't sync. Since the

ipaq can't do anything but an http stream, you're kinda out of luck
unless you can find a jre for the ipaq and run softsqueeze.

Yes, you can use a mixture of SliMP3, Squeezebox and SoftSqueeze.
