    Which sound card allows to input the TV sound in the multi-room ? The idea is to
    be able to listen to the sound from the TV in the other rooms. I think the jack
    from the RPI is output only, so not useable.

    Hello jof,

    The Raspberry only has outputs. So you need a soundcard with an input. The wolfson cirrus logic has some inputs.

    Hello Christoph

    Thank you for the tip.

    Do you know how the input can be integrated in the squeezebox ? (Sorry, i am not a code specialist, i choose max2play for its easy web interface)

    I see the wolfson cirrus logic card is supported on Max2Play. But screeshots only show the use of output of the soundcard.

    isnt there a way of turning a raspberry pi and an usb soundcard with line in into a device that streams the audio to the network so you can acces that audiostream by entering the url in to the squeezebox server?

    Hi, I want to able listen to the TV outputin multiple rooms, too. I think the way to go is to use the RCA (audio chinch) output of the TV. But how to get into to RPI ? In the perfect world I would use input and output (amp in my case) of one RPI at the same time.

    Has anyone experience with this setup ? Hardware recommendations?

    I’d like to draw attention to this topic again, as there is a new sound card:

    My LG Tv allowes (good) Internal speakers and Optical digital output at the same time.
    Would be awesome to integrate that into a max2play multiroom (my kitchen has a see through) system with digital input. (or all other kind of digital Inputs, e.g. turntable, Xbox, set-top-box by TV company..)

    Maybe there is a bigger market oppertunity than just me.

    Hi Js,

    Thanks for pointing this out. We will check out the new Digi I/O and see what possibilities it offers, soon.

    How is it possible to select usb audio-in source in LMS? Audio-out is already working. My intention is to
    stream dvb-s sound over the multiroom system. Audio multiroom streaming from NAS source, as well as Spotify
    is working very good, and without delay. Looking the web for days, no solution found. When usb audio card is
    recognized, and working, there must be a way to get audio-in as well working!

    Hi amigo,

    There is no direct solution for audio-in. However, there is the wave input plugin for the LMS that might help you along.

    Hey there. I am wanting to do the same thing and it looks like the Wolfson card may be the only solution. Check out this post:

    Generally, the problem with input is lag time. Any solution will have at least 2-4 seconds lag and requires a lot of processing from each end device to synchronize streams. The Wolfson card, which is no longer being manufactured, takes care of some of that but still cannot eliminate the lag.

    You need input sound card for your tv.
