[mythtv-users] Sync'd MythMusic

The problem with using an icecast like solution is going to be timing.
In my experience, when I try to run multiple streams from an icecast
server they are never actually sync'd. This has to do with the caching
of the stream that each player uses. I suppose it would be possible
when streaming to not use a cache, and then every player should be
playing the same stream at the same time. Any thoughts on this?
