Using Airport Express (AE) and AirTunes... play at multiple sites?
Posted by: SKYLANE

I am using 2 Airport Express' with AirTunes. I can only select one AE or computer to play at any one time. Is this a software thing? Or, is this a hardware constraint?

I would really like to play at multiple AEs at the same time. Or, at least at computer and one of the AEs at the same time...

It's not designed to broadcast to multiple locations. Select among available locations, but not simultaneously.

I know its not designed to broadcast to multiple locations. I was wondering if that limitation was a software limitation or a hardware limitation.

I read a couple of weeks ago either here or the 'old' forum that the next version of Rogue Amoeba's Soundfoil (version 2) will allow one to send music to more than one Airport Express simultaneously.

I just found a link about it on their website.

Looking forward to the update.

Yes, clearly, it doesn't do something you're attempting to do with it. My point is, the premise itself is questionable. If your efforts to make a product do something contrary to its intended use fail, you've automatically come to the conclusion that it's a "limitation". Then wonder which kind of limitation it is. As if your conclusion made sense in the first place. If you try to drive an automobile in two directions at once, and the car doesn't respond to your wish, would you ask if it's a design or manufacturing limitation? Maybe it's a user limitation?

Thanks Gilbert.

Looks like Airfoil shows some promise. This will allow me to stream other Audio as well to AE. Since I am a XM Subscriber, I also get XM over the internet for free. Looks like I may be able to stream XM to AE now with Airfoil! Thanks...
