    Hi all,

    SWMBO has bought me a Revo AXiS for my birthday and I'm really pleased with the unit, but I've just tried to configure it to stream music/playlists from my iTunes library, but it looks like it only streams from a Windows PC if you use WMP.

    Is that right, or is there some way I can stream my iTunes playlists using the AXiS?

    Cheers.

    [Edit] - Just noticed this on the Apple site:

    I have an iPad, which I guess I could dock and use, but would rather stream direct from my PC.

    Thanks, I'm using Windows 7 if that changes anything?

    Apologies, I somehow assumed you were using a Mac! :suicide:

    I'm still out of my depth as I have no iTunes knowledge but this seems to offer a free solution for non-DRM material. I dare say a Google search will find other options.

    Well I'm on the phone to Apple now and they have just told me the iPad doesn't support streaming.

    I then asked why it said it did on the AXiS's webpage and I'm now on hold while she has gone to "check with a senior tech"...
