I'm using my Airport Express to play music on my Macbook through my Yamaha receiver but how can I send music on my iPhone to the receiver? ->>>The same music is not on my MacBook because I am at my parents' place. But I did setup Home Sharing/Airport Express at their place.

Or would that same Airport Express be able to send my iPhone music to the Yamaha receiver somehow? i.e. I join the same home network using my iPhone then does iTunes have the capability of sending the iPhone music to the receiver since the receiver is connected to the Airport Express via RCA/mini-jack.

The same Airport Express should work just fine sending audio from either iTunes or the iPhone, as long as they are on the same network.

Just select the name of the Express in the list that pops up, and you're good to go.
