Hello,

I am a new Squeezebox player user and addict. That said, I don't consider buying one player for every room, as some room have some PCs that are perfectly capable of playing music by themselves.

What I'd like for these is a way to make these PCs part of the Squeezebox network. So they'd be controllable by the iPhone app, synchronizable with a group of players, etc.

Does anyone knows if this exists?

You need SqueezePlay.

Sync of audio from soft players (i.e. Squeezeplay, Softsqueeze, Squeezeslave) with hardware players is generally not good because of PC OS and hardware issues.

Keep in mind you will not get tight/accurate Sync with software players.
