Two soundcards in one MD
« on: October 31, 2008, 10:45:34 am »
Hi guys,

I've one MD in my livingroom. Near this room, there are two other rooms, where I'm planning to locate some stereo speaker. I know, that I can get a squezzebox to have audio in these two rooms, but I wonder, if I could add a second and maybe a third soundcard to the MD in the living room.

Is it possible to have a MD with two or more soundcards and if it is, how would I assign an EA to it? If it isn't possible, what would be the best method to add an audio zone to a room, without the need to add a full MD?

Thanks in advance,
eNoodle

One optiion is to have SW squeezeslave player on second audio card - it should behave like normal HW squeezebox player...
