Hello,

Suppose I load a music CD into my laptop's CD drive - is it possible then to listen to it on my Hi-Fi via the squeezbox?

Another application would be watching a DVD on my laptop and hearing the sound on my Hi-Fi via squeezbox - is this possible?

Thank you very much.

These are both frequently asked questions on these forums. The short answer is no and no, but try searching the forums for lots more details (and some possible ways of managing the first if not the second).

And a better answer is that there is software (depending on the OS) which can take sound from the computer and broadcast it. And the Squeezebox can connect to this broadcast sound (possibly needing AlienBBC).

I have done this, but only as an experiment some time ago, so I can't remember all the details.
