    Hi, I've been looking all over but can't seem to find an answer. I have a macbook, mac mini, and two airport expresses, one in my bedroom and one in my roommates. The mac mini is hooked up to the home theater system in the living room. My question is this, is it possible to have both computers and both airports running the same music? I can get either computer and both airports to run, but can i use my macbook to control the music to the home theater? Basically, is there any way to add the mac mini to the remote speakers list in itunes?

    Not that I'm aware of. You would be better off just connecting the home theater to one of the AirPort Expresses, or an additional one.

    check out airfoil

    it will let you acomplish what you want. it won't be in the dropdown menu, but you can play music to all 4 things. it also works for system sounds and other things, audio that goes with video gets tricky though.
