    So, my new MBpro is having an issue where Air tunes gets choppy, cutting in and out.

    Only happens when there are other devices (computers or iphones) accessing the network and the new MBpro is playing music over air tunes...

    It does not happen if my old PowerBook G4 is the host computer playing the music.

    Any thoughts?

    Config:
    Time Capsule is the host.
    Airport Express is a slave
    Old and busted PB G4 works fine (still)
    New hotness MBpro 3.06 is choppy when playing with others.

    I'm betting on a weak signal or something interfering with the signal. Let's be honest, the MacBook Pro typically has the worst AirPort performance of any Apple products going back to even the PowerBook days. If AirPort is displaying a full signal, then it's probably interference in some way, I know I get this when I play online games (Wi-Fi isn't ideal for that especially with a MacBook Pro). I say move it around places and see if anything helps.
