I wish to stream audio I am playing on my laptop to my hifi.
I have a jailbroken Apple TV2 which is just fantastic, and we use it particularly for playing videos from our laptops on our TV (XBMC/ATVflash).
However I just don't find the media player ('pull' media) concept that convenient or intuitive for music - I want to 'push from my laptop. For various reasons I don't want to run the music through my TV either.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a box/software to achieve this? Airplay/airfoil seems the best but are there any catches? Are there any other similar solutions?
