What file format are you using?

With regards to the extra AP - If I run one SB off my existing AP, then run
the second off the new AP, surely that would get around the bandwidth issue?

A stream is required for each SB, regardless of synced or not, so data
bandwidth will double with two boxen (assuming all other factors equal).

Nope, a stream is still required for each SB.
I have two wireless, and with the recent 5.3 am having no problems
streaming to both of them simultaneously (thanks Slim).
