Not sure if this has been asked before, but is there anyway to sync to players
to play the same thing at the same time. I'd quite like my PC running the
softsqueeze to play the same thing as my squeezebox in another room - why?
Well when cleaning the house it would be nice (for example).

Is it possible?

There should be a dropdown to allow you to do this in the web-based server
thingy. It should allow you to sync both players either way round. Start the
slimserver interface after softsqueeze and it should be in the top tight of
the screen.

look in player settings, and you will find what you need.

note: only hardware players and softsqueeze can sync. connecting using http,
such as from winamp or itunes will not allow syncing.
