I have a remote slingbox which streams video & sound to my laptop. The sound on my laptop is poor. Is there a neat way I can stream the sound on my laptop to a squeezebox?

Search the forums for icecast.

The sound through slimserver will have a delay so if you are hoping for synchronised sound and video - it won't happen.

Thanks, should have mentioned, I've tried icecast & works well apart from the delay !!! No way round this as far as I can tell.

Anyone any other solutions or thoughts?

If you really want to try something - use mplayer.

Mplayer can play dvds and video streams and it has the facility to alter the video/audio sync allowing either to be advanced or retarded. Getting the right timing is hit/miss especially if the delays is in secs.
