Question: Do 2 SB's sync'd use 2x bandwidth?

I've been listening to Radioio during the day with 2 SB's sync'd lately and noticed my ISP bandwidth usage has grown significantly. I'm using SlimServe v6.5.4

I don't know. But I can speculate.

I would expect that playing from your music collection, that sync'ing would use twice the bandwidth.

And I would bet that using SqueezeNetwork to two different stations also uses twice the bandwidth.

Are you using SqueezeNetwork?

I've been using my slim server internet connection.

SlimServer only uses 1 connection to the station when streaming radio for synced players.

If you are using sync you owe it to yourself to upgrade to SC7, sync is vastly improved there.
