Hi,

I have just ordered an SB3 and am trying to set up Slimserver 6.5.4 on Windows XP.

I am wondering if it is possible to stream the audio from my laptop to the Squeezebox. In particular, I would like to pipe the sound from a DVD I play on the laptop to the Squeezebox, so I don't have to have the laptop connected to the hifi by a cable.

Thanks.

There's a plug-in that claims to capture the soundcard stream on the PC that actually hosts slimserver.

But anyway, you'd likely to have problems with lip-sync if you're taking the sound from a DVD due to processing delays.

Thanks, I'll check this out.

I was hoping there would be something that would install as a sound device and then would couple to Slimserver somehow.
