    Hey guys is there a way to make it so when i plug my ibook onto a LAN connection it connects to my Windows machine and somehow transfers sound through to network onto the windows machine then out to the speakers. I ask becuase having to plug in a sound cable everytime i go to plug my ibook on the desk

    get a splitter cable for your speakers (3.5 mm male and 2 females) and a male to male 3.5 mm extension. This assume that your speakers have a female connection to connect to your computer.

    also, not that the over the lan would be hard because network latency will drag out the sound response time a few seconds.

    You might try downloading Remote Desktop Connection and getting on your iBook's iTunes shared library from the Windows machine. An ugly situation, but it might do.

    Fink or Darwinports will no doubt have a commandline mp3 player whose output could probably be ssh'ed to Windows. Not sure, never done it with sound.

    The only solutions I'm aware of don't have Windows at the receiving end. I think I'm missing something though.
