    LinkPlayer with BeoSound 5

    I just tried using LinkPlayer in a setup that has a BeoSound 5 and had no success distributing the iTunes music through the MasterLink. I had made my BeoSound 5 the Audio Master and programmed it to use the "CD" Beo4 button for it's own N.Music. It seems the BeoSound 5 will still not allow a MasterLink control of LinkPlayer using either the "n.music" soft button on the beo4, the A.Mem button, or the A.Aux button. The only solution I can think of would be to make the BeoSound 5 the Audio Slave, make the BeoCenter 2 the Audio Master, and connect an airport express to the A.Aux input of the BeoCenter 2. That would seem like a logical way to access the music from the mac and control it using an iPhone or iPad. Anyone's thoughts?

    The LinkPLayer seems to be an excellent program, btw!

    You can effectively only have one N.MUSIC server in the house.

    Could you describe your setup... which element (TV, audio) you've got in which room...

    I was hoping that maybe the BeoSound 5 would "free up" the N.MUSIC command to be used by the BeoPort if the BeoSound 5 N.MUSIC was re-assigned to DVD or A.MEM. That doesn't seem to be the case. 

    I have a BeoSystem 3 as video master in the living room with a BeoSound 5 as audio master in the living room. Also in the living room, I have a BeoCenter 2 disconnected from the ML and being used only for DVD.

    I have an Avant in the bedroom as a link room.

    I have a BeoSystem 1 with BeoVision 4 in the den/gym as a link room. In the same room, I have a BeoPort connected to an iMac.

    I think that the only solution to use the LinkPlayer in this setup might be to disconnect the BeoPort from the Masterlink. Then I could connect an airport express to the BeoCenter 2 Aux port. Of course, I would have to make the BeoCenter 2 the audio master in order to use the Aux port and AUX function.

    The latest update to the BeoSound 5 now allows multiple BeoMaster 5 / BeoSound 5 units to be connected to the ML in a home. I'm not sure how this is done, though, what the settings would be, and how it might be relevant to the LinkPlayer. It might be relevant, though.
