In the weird category. Make sure there is no ICMP filtering on either end. I don't know why so many IT "pros" think that firewalling ICMP is a good idea, especially when they can't tell me why they think it is a good idea. ICMP delivers a lot of important control messages (not just pings and traceroutes, but those are important too when things are not working correctly).

But yeah, this isn't an easy thing to trouble shoot. If I had time, and my hands on the gear to actually try things, then maybe we'd get somewhere...then again, maybe not. smile

OK, just talked about it with my wife. You guys are absolutely right, I'm making this more complicated and hard to use than it needs to be (or she wants it to be). So I'm thinking Airport Express now, unless there is a different solution (at <$150) that you guys would recommend. Source will be the laptops with iTunes, which will have copies of the music library on each. We only have a few purchased songs.

My ex said that once.

Just a suggestion-an Xbox 360 actually makes a pretty effective way to connect to your system. You just plug your iPod into the front with the USB cable that came with it, connect the Xbox to your receiver via HDMI and you can control pretty much all functions using the Xbox controller. I think the signal stays digital the whole way doing that.
