Hello, following a fantastic article from your site i was able, through bubbleUpnp, to stream my music via Jriver to my chromecast audio device and play it. Now i bought a second chromecast audio for another room in oud house and also installed it so i can use it that way. Time for my question however: using the Google Home app i linked the two chromecast audio' s to be able to use them together (and of course in sync). With an app like Spotify this works like a charm. Although Jriver an JRemote recognize the linked chromecasts as a nee dnla-renderer and i can choose it as a device to stream my music to, nothing more happens....no music..using them seperately they both work however. I am trying this setup because using Jriver ability to link zones doesn't work, at least not in sync. Any thoughts on why my setup doesn't work would be appreciated.
First, THANK YOU all who contribute your knowledge on this site. I've learned so much. My question revolves around a networked/whole house audio system I have only envisioned at this point. But recent home improvements had me open up several walls and with so much time invested in quietly ripping and organizing a 700G/24000 song library I want to take this time to get the future infrastructure correct. The plan is to use JRMC installed on a windows laptop for control and playback of the music files on a NAS of some sorts. Ideally I would like 4 zones not counting my existing studio monitors connected to the laptop. I have several questions that may come to light after answering my first main question. Can I just run CAT6 from the laptop running JRMC direct to the NAS and still get multizone audio from future wired CAT6? OR do I need to add a sound card capable of sending multi-channel out from the laptop to the NAS? And if it is the later, what would this connection be? As you can tell I'm a little confused how that aspect works.
