    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    Definitely, the iPod app can only play the music, which is also on iTunes.

    However, going that route requires the PC to be constantly on and it only works for iTunes. I have only done estimates, but the increase in electricity bill should roughly cover a refurbished APE within 1 year. I personally also watch YouTube videos, listen to radio, etc. so the APE was definitely a worthwhile investment.

    Yeah, its just in the op's particular case, I thought I would point out he doesn't need airport express. I have one myself and an ATv2 and AirPlay and homesharing are great. But both of these are connected to dedicated Amps not a PC

    yea i was thinking of that too... so the best way is also to buy the AE. But omg i was suprisly shocked in a good way when i tried this now. holy **** is there anyway i can "transfer" the remote app to the ipod on ipad. its kind of heavy to type on the remote app all the time when theres shortcut for the ipod on the taskline

    Yeah, that is a restriction of iOS. The apps run sandboxed, so they can't take over control of the system, but it also means you can't control an app from outside the app. So the only way to control the music playback on your PC is via Remote app, the icons in the Multitaskbar cannot be configured to work with Remote. You would think Apple would make exceptions for it's own apps, but alas no.

    Guys, one more alternative for streaming can be WiFi2HiFi app. Correct me if I am wrong, but that is what I see on [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bb6rmt9GnN8&feature=related"]youtube [/ame]

    That just looks like someone trialling the Amazon CloudPlayer

    Hi folks. I've finally bought the AE. Bought it today. The music wireless streaming from the Ipad to my speakers works perfectly. The only thing I've not managed is sound from my computer to the speakers.

    I've bought a splitter and a 3,5 male to male cable.

    My setup is:

    AE - > splitter -> speakers / 3,5 male cable to computer.

    Is there anything else I'm missing?

    Another thing is the wireless printer. I plugged my printer ( lexmark x3650) to the AE. But I can't find it when I try to print something from my Ipad.

    If you want both your computer and AE to connect to the speakers, then this is wrong.

    It should be AE and Computer to a switch then switch to the speakers (you maybe able to use the splitter in reverse for the same effect, but playing music on the AE and computer at the same time may cause problems).

    I don't understand your setup... o.O Could you explain more or give me an example?
