I'm about to bite the bullet and order 2 squeezebox receivers and 1 duet remote. I've been running Squeezecenter 7 for a while now so that I can stream music to work, but I have never used any hardware. I would like to be able to use the duet remote in my main listening room, and then carry the same remote to where I workout where another receiver will be and use it there as well. I know from reading the forums that this can be done, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do this. Is it easy and fast and can it be done from the remote without going into Squeezecenter?

On the remote you scroll to an option called "choose player" and select it.

Then you scroll to the player you want to control and select it.

Then you wait 2-3secs whilst negotiation takes place.

Then you can control the other player.

It's not as easy as that Jaffacake.

I don't know how the Controller will handle switching between wireless networks. I've not heard of this being asked before.

Will you be using the Reciever as the ad-hoc network or using the wirless at work?

I didn't read or expect there to be 2 different wireless networks, perhaps the OP can clarify.

Sorry, I miss read.

workout != work :)

Sorry, please ignore me. It works as Jaffa said, works well too.

Are the duet receivers available for sale separately yet?
