Video on MD, sound through Squeezebox
« on: August 08, 2011, 11:32:41 am »
Hi all,

In my kitchen I have a MD connected to a Samsung LCD TV but the sound coming from the TV is very poor. In the same kitchen I have a Squeezebox as well. Now I am wondering if it is possible to pipe the audio of the MD through the Squeezbox. I have tried using the Connection Wizard, but both have only outputs so I can't connect the output of the MD to an input on the Squeezebox. Anybody a clue how to get this running or is it maybe not possible...

This has been asked a looooot of times ;) and there is currently no solution.

Edit: Coming to think of it, maybe you can feed the TVs sound output into the Line-In of the Squeezebox and use it that way.

Posde,

thanks for thinking with me, the option you mention however is problematic for me as the TV is mounted on the wall and the pipe leading up to it is too full.
I know for a fact that it is possible to stream audio as well as video to 2 or more MD's at the same time, I was thinking along that way  ;D

Thanks,

Han
