Hi there, been lurking here for a while and I've searched the archives
on this but can't find what I'm looking for

I've got a Squeezebox and I'm running Slimserver 5.1 - though I'm
downloading 5.1.1 now. I've also got a Barix Exstreamer for which I'd
like to use Slimserver rather than the zServer software. Is there a
HOW-TO on this anywhere or could some kind soul help me out.? I'd like
to be able to control an individual Exstreamers in the same way I can a
Squeezebox if that is possible

Thanks
Iain

that's a cute little box. http://www.barix.com/exstreamer/

Browsing the FAQ, they use their own port to stream to it, but MP3 is
mentioned several times as is HTTP. My _guess_ is that they're streaming
HTTP. However, you'll need to be handy with a sniffer such as Ethereal
to determine exactly how it's doing what it does in order to even say
whether Slimserver can do the same thing.
