Hi Ryan Please could you clarify what you mean by a stream? Is this an internet stream to a news feed - can you provide an example? Thanks, Jason
Reece Abbott commented
Hi Jason, this would be a great idea so you could stream FSN or radio news hub in via URL

It would be nice to be able to open a line in on our soundcard to take the news from Sky News Radio (via an external satellite dish) at specified times.

Re Andrew's comment above; I'm sure I've suggested this before :) Would be nice to have it implemented.

I was just looking at the same thing, an Aux input for live news feed every hour would be good (example from Sky News Radio (via an external satellite dish) at specified times.

Basically PlayIt would be compatible with a broadcast switcher. I've used a system before where a switcher plugged into the USB port and the computer would send commands to the switcher. In turn, the audio could be run from the switcher and plug into another line-in port on the sound card. A lot of the setup would be more to do with the hardware than the software. PlayIt would just have to be able to communicate with the switcher (send commands at preset [scheduled] times or by clicking a button) and recognize another audio source.

Line in for news Sky/IRN feed. This is a must have.
