Hi,
I generally listen to lossless stereo files hence the intrest in SB2, but just wondered if SB2 can "pass through" a DD or DTS signal from say winDVD ?

Errm...another quick one I hope - the wireless SB2, with the cat5 (If I remember corectly) plug on the back, am I able to plug in a crossover cable(as I already have one) untill I get the wireless network set up ?

Thanks in advance for any comments.

You'd have to rip the audio beforehand, because there's no way ATM to
stream audio from arbitrary applications. Other than that, it should
work.

I assume you're asking if you can attach the sb2 directly to a
computer via a crossover cable? Yes.

Thanks,

Do you know if there may be any moves to include an option to play stuff from other programs?

FAB! I like the idea of using a crossover cable for the time being, as it will probably take me a while to set up the wireless bit.
