Hi,

Just bought an additional SB3. When listening to the same Internet radio streams from both players I believe my net connection is is pulling the data twice. Is it possible to set up a proxy or something on the server so the data is first downloaded from the Internet to that and then the players can download from the cached data?

Yes, you need to set the players to use the server as a proxy.

Under Player settings for each player, under audio, set "MP3 Streaming Method" to "Proxied"

I think this is the default if you use synced players.
