As for setting a home group that is between two pcs not a pc and a hand held. For sharing you would need a web based media storage when going from one platform to another. Hand helds like smart phones, IPhones, etc. can browse, check the main, even download apps for phones however.
Depending on the type of other device(s) you are referring to however something would need to be patched in directly to the system you want to hear through. That could be an analog line-in by 1/6" miniplug even to an infrared wireless input device or by digital I/O hard wired or wireless.
Thanks for coming here Night hawk.
i am getting creative speakers soon and they will be connected to my desktop (or laptop if in case things dont work the way i think of) via cable. they are not wireless, just the normal cable. i was upto homegroup thing because i want to play whatever audio through those speakers from my laptop (and if at all possible from the phone which could be connected by bluetooth...)
get it? if you are confused tell me...
actually, one person i know has a homegroup at his place, his two computers(a laptop and a desktop) are connected to each other sharing data... and he showed me this thing.... playing music from his phone and computer through the speakers of my laptop using "shairport" .... now i dont know how this system works so i need some help in this.. (yes, he has iphone and itunes on pc)
i have an android tablet too,
All i want to do is be able to play audio through those great speakers without having to plug in the cable everytime to every device .....
