Hi,

I can get a (cheap) Roku soundbridge, actually I am
a (proud) owner of a Squeezebox.
My question is: Is it possible to sznchronize both
via Slimserver to hear same music.

Thanks
Jeibie

Sorry, but the sound bridge is not supported.

roku has an emulation mode that can connect to slimserver. in theory, it would
sync. how well, is not known.

This is a good one from them!

Q: What firmware version do I need to upgrade to in order to use SlimServer?

The latest SoundBridge software (version 2.1) supports SlimServer version 5.4.

Note: When you first connect to SlimServer, SlimServer may say that it needs to "upgrade" the firmware in your SoundBridge.

The SoundBridge doesn't actually use SlimServer firmware, but since SoundBridge emulates a SqueezeBox, it needs to tell the SlimServer that it's running a current SqueezeBox firmware revision. At the time of this writing, version 40 worked with SlimServer 5.4. If that version still asks you to update, you can have the SoundBridge automatically try software versions in sequence until it finds one that works.

I have two Roku M1000 Soundbridges running slimserver 6.1
(on Gentoo)

They work well with slimserver. I like slimserver best of all the server software that I have tried with them. (WMC, iTunes, twonkyvision)

When you choose 'synchronize' they are sometimes off a fraction of a second (tens to hundreds of milliseconds) but stopping and restarting a few times (play/pause) I can get them very close to synchronous.

I use flac -> wav or flac -> lame.

fascinating--when i called roku and asked if you could sync 2 soundbridges using slimserver their answer was no....
