hi, i have 2 pc's in my house running on windows xp, 1 pc runing windows vista, 3 laptops runing windows xp and 1 laptop runing windows vista.
i have 5 TV's with suround sound.

i need to be able to sync all of these together to play music.
is there any software i can use to do this.

i was thinking of a radio tuner, it sends a radio signal, but i can't find out how to use this to recieve it on other pc's. is there any software which lets me listen to radio on my pc's?
also, all of these computers are networked.

and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

thanks.

Pick one (or more) PC(s) as the "Server", put all the music into one folder on that PC (organized into subfolders if desired) then share that folder.

Then map a drive on the other PCs to the shared folder, then point your player (MusicMatch Jukebox, Media Monkey, Windows Media Player, WinAmp, VLC, RealPlayer, etc) to that drive to build it's playlist.
Many players will accept a UNC path (\\server\share) so you don't need to map a drive.

Note that copy protected items might only play on the PC that they were originally downloaded/copied/recorded onto, and can't be shared over a network.

They do make Radio capture cards, both AM and FM. You can also find combo TV/FM cards. Just one search:http://www.nextag.com/radio-tuner-card/search-html

There are some radio capture cards that can capture multiple stations at the same time -- these are very expensive though.
