    I like to stream from my iMac wirelessly to my stereo. I have a 1st generation aluminum iMac running OSX10.6.3 and stream to an Airport Express basestation. I run the latest version of iTunes.

    Whenever iTunes starts to automatically download podcasts that I subscribe to the streaming stops or plays with lots of sound drop-outs. It is incredibly annoying!

    Sometimes I can't even surf the internet without getting sound drop-outs? What can I do to improve this?

    I always keep my Macs clean so I don't have tons of third party plugins installed - for the very same reason :)

    EDIT: I have 8 Mbit download and 2 Mbit upload.


    Thanks in advance.

    Hey there,
