    Yamaha musiccast picore player

    Hi
    im using the Yamaha musiccast system and was wondering if it is possible to add a picore player.

    I have 2 musiccast 20 speakers and would like to have music in the bathroom. Since my bathroom is small it isn't worth to invest the money for another musiccast 20. But i have a raspberry pi lying around I thought I could maybe add it to the system?

    Is this even possible?
    Thanks
    Thomas

    MusicCast is Yamaha specific and I don't remember seeing a plugin for it from LMS.
    However, they also support AirPlay ... so maybe you could integrate them with LMS by using the AirPlay plugin.
    If that worked the you might be able to use LMS to start playing on your real MusicCast system and sync it (via LMS) to your Raspberry Pi in the bathroom (assuming that is what you would want to do).
