Hi Nick in Seattle. I trying to understand streaming, and import it into my Wi-Fi network.
Please excuse me OP for stepping on your post. Just trying to put it all together.
You caught my attention with your:
NDX - network player, or nas ? Which I don’t have.
Just learned I was steaming, but really didn’t know it!
I think I’m streaming locally which means there is no cost!
Ethernet > MM > Airport Extreme > 3 x Expresses
The MM is my server & itunes is apt supplied with With my late model MM that should be upgraded to at least 8 Gigabits of RAM for best results.
My itunes Library consist of 4 day of continuous music compiled by ripping and purchasing inferior compressed tunes from the Apple Store @ .99 cents & a buck and a quarter. Very convenient, but looking to improve quality at minim cost!
Life was simple until my friend bought me a 55" Samsung HDTV~ $500, what da heck, Free!
Now I’m streaming Sling TV with Apple TV as a Server! I think???
Sling is the apt or application, the Apple TV is the server.
That’s enough for today, but if you or anyone listening can confirm my lack of understanding, I surely would appreciate it!
Thanks in advance!
PS. Just looked at the rear of my expresses and seen an Ethernet port!
Hence, I’m streaming wireless.
Is there an electrical unit that contains 6 ethernet outputs that could be used to wire my home???
Next question tomorrow?
Cat 5e, 6, 7, or 8 holy shot!
Please excuse me, for not knowing the jargon!
