Hi All,

How can I configure slimserver to output different streams to
different ports on a local machine? for instance, let's say i have N
sound cards, and want to a potentially different stream to each sound
card (similar to selecting which client i want to control in the pull
down menu). what's the best way to do this? if there's no built-in
way to do this, does anyone have any advice on hacking the source to
allow me to do this?

thanks.
jim

box?

I want to use slimp3 as an interface for playing music in multiple
rooms in a home. for instance, i want to be able to play something
different in the kitchen and the bedroom, and have this be selected
via the web interface. i would then take the output from the sound
cards, amplify them, and send them to speakers. i know this can be
done using multiple slimboxes, but i can't afford that right now.

i'd appreciate any suggestions on how i can achieve this.
