Title: Internet radio and audio in Dianemo
Post by: Ritmo2k on June 01, 2013, 09:35:00 pm
Hey guys,
Gotta re-install from a hardware issue and I never got around to setting up internet radio or ripped audio on a dianemo I setup for someone.

The wiki explains how to setup LMS, but I am unclear on the need for any actual squeeze players?
Is there any way to broadcast net radio/ripped music to a virtualized sound card with an amp pumping music to several rooms without buying any hardware?

Thanks!

If you have an amp with multiple output zones, you can have as many audio zones as it supports. Dianemo supports the use of a multi channel soundcard to have (iirc) 3 stereo zones out of a regular sound card. If your amp supports three analog ins and you have three zones in your amp, you can have three independent audio zones without additional hardware.

Hi Posed,
Yeah I have an rti multi channel amp and a virtualised soundcard. So the Dianemo can't be without the Logitech media server, so this means at least a squeeze slave software client must be installed for each zone?

Thanks!

yes. And you even get the money back,that you pay for the squeezeslaves, in case it does not work.

Yes you need a Squeezeslave & Squeezebox player for each audio zone on the RTI. See the RTI section on the Dianemo Wiki page for details;

and you should also see this section too;

and then this one for Internet Radio;
