    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.
