Other Features: To help support our customers, below we have details on how to allow your Stream Box DS to access additional features. (True, as of January 26th, 2012)
AirPlay: With the use of a free application - available on the App store for iPhones or iPod Touch, and through the Android Market - the Stream Box DS can be used as an Air Play-like product. Simply install the Application onto your device, open it up and press the "My Music" icon. Select an album/track to play, and when the pop-up screen 'Play On' appears, select Stream Box DS. Please note, performance is most stable when used on a strong wireless network, and with lower file-sizes.
Spotify: By downloading Jamcast from SDS Technologies, users can set-up their Stream Box DSA as a "Virtual Soundcard" on their network. Jamcast allows the playback of all audio from a computer to be transmitted to a Stream Box DSA over the network, opening up such premium services as Spotify, Grooveshark and Last FM. Simply go to www.sdstechnologies.com and download the free 14-day trial (which is later upgradeable, at a small cost), and install the software onto your PC. Once installed, go to your Stream Box DSA and select "Media Server", "Jamcast" (folder), "Virtual Soundcard" (folder), "Virtual Soundcard".
Now, all the audio from your PC will be transmitted to the Stream Box DSA.
Please note, a stable wired connection on the computer and the Stream Box allows for a more solid performance.
