I'm going to buy a Fit PC (the new Slim version). I will be using it as a 24/7 music server, with SC installed, supporting by SB Duet. Mostly this will work fine.

However, sometimes I like to initiate streaming audio not from a standard internet radio source. I will need to initiate the stream from my computer. It will not be convenient to do so from the Fit, hidden away in a dark basement corner.

What are the consequences of running two instances of SC simultaneously, one on the Fit, one on my regular PC, both networked via ethernet with the SB?

You can access your SC from any computer in your network. Just open

You can switch between them using the "Music Source" menu.
