For those that don't know, if you have a windows media extender device (or an xbox 360). you can remotely control what is played on it via wmp 12. Just put the device into WMC and in your wmp 12 you will see it as an option when you right click and go to play to.
Now I have an xbox 360 in my living room and each room. I would like to sync the audio playback for all devices. I know this is purposely not (for some reason) an option for wmp12 but I dont see any reason why you cant have a plugin that uses a shared playlist and sends out the same request to more than one "play to" device. The program knows the timestamp of each device independently, sounds like a few weeks of programming could have taken it into this very necessary level.
Hell I would easily even have paid extra for this feature. Alas Microsoft "almost" gets it right.
I'm assuming most of you have not played with this feature yet, so i'll let you check this out before helping me find a solution to synced playback. (this is the issue with new programs and devices, the more unique features don't get flushed out for some time)
P.S. if I can pause and play the two "play to" screen to match the audio. But the sync is lost on track change... :-/
