  • Airplay receiver

    Hi,

    Just wanted to inform that I have integrated HS3 with Shairport-Sync as an Airplay receiver.

    SPS runs on both Linux and Windows. Windows via Cygwin.
    I am running it on the same Windows 7 machine as HS3 with good performance.

    SPS provides full metadata and transport control over avahi and dbus.
    On windows, permissions for dbus are a bit tricky and transport control is currently under development

    Today I have scripts for:
    - setting up the devices
    - communication between SPS and HS3
    - handling meta data consistently from all sorts of sources to populate the devices.

    Making scripts for transport control for a Linux implementation should be quite easy. (4-5 straight commands.)

    If anyone is interested, I would be glad to provide my code as is or as an embryo for a plugin.

    Bob
