Hi all

I've got a squeezebox in my lounge, the host PC (PC 1) in the study and
another networked PC( PC 2) in another room in the house. I access the
music collection on the host PC on PC 2 via the network IP and that
works fine. However what I would like to do is to synchronize PC 2 with
what is being played on the squeezebox. Is that possible?

I can see a question on how to synchronize 2 squeezeboxes on the FAQ but
not how to answer my problem!


Thanks for your help


Robin

You cannot sync o standard software players like winamp, windows media player,
or iTunes. However, some developers have made a couple solutions, depending on
your OS of choice. Look for softsqueeze on this page:

Its a software emulator of the squeezebox that run with Java. You may need to
Download the Java Runtime Engine from Sun. It is also an alpha release at this
point, but new releases are on the way.
