I looked into Pluto about half a year ago, and have now got round to actually doing something about it. A few questions:
1) Does Pluto support wireless connections between the core and MDs (as in does it enable WEP keys to be used etc)? I know it's not recommended but I can't really use a wired network.
2) If I were to play some music from a hybrid core to several MDs, would the audio from each one be in sync? All my MDs are gonna be quite close together - don't think my neighbours would appreciate hearing my music in 3 slightly different timings at once! I only ask because I know you use VLC, and my experiences with VLC are that it's not very good at syncing up the receivers (even with the -master-ip option).
3) Is it possible to play CDs from the core. I asked this a while back (http://plutohome.com/support/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?p=1586&highlight=#1586
) and was told that the CD would have to be ripped first, but now I've found this page (http://plutohome.com/support/right.php?section=documents/documentDisplay&docID=238
) in your help docs. Confused!
4) How easy would it be to be able to stream what enters the core sound card's line in socket to the MDs. I know it's possible in VLC, so I guess it's just a UI issue.
Thanks for any help!
