AirTunes with Airport Express
November 26, 2005
I finally did it. After months of deliberation, talking, and put off, I finally got my apartment setup with AirTunes with Airport Express.
The first thing I had to get was a new stereo (which I wouldn’t recommend picking up on Black Friday) that had inputs to plug the stereo cables into. My old stereo wouldn’t do the trick and wouldn’t have sounded as good as this one anyway.
I had a couple of weird issues setting up AirTunes, though. First time through, it only let me use AirTunes if I was using my Airport Express for Ethernet as well. Then I deleted the Airport as a connection to the Internet (which didn’t work anyway). Once I did this, it would not find my Airport Express. I restarted a couple times and opened the setup assistant again and again, and one time it just worked, for some odd reason.
Oh well, at least it works now. I do have some weird issues with the music stopping for about two seconds, even when this computer isn’t doing anything. Has anyone else had this issue, and if so, what did you do to resolve it?
