Since the X-Air app doesn't stream audio...at all...I got an IOGear GUWIP204 (networked USB server) to hopefully allow me to use the 18/18 USB port on the same WiFi that I use for control.
After discovering that I can't do this on the built-in hotspot (no real network, only device-to-XR18 connections allowed), I added an external router and *almost* got everything talking. I can control the XR18 just fine, and the IOGear's app can connect to a flash drive just fine, but when I connect to the XR18 via the IOGear, Windows 7 always bluescreens. A direct USB connection works like it's supposed to, but I can't do that while running FOH.
Anyone have experience there? Specifically remote audio on an XR__?

Unfortunately as far as I am aware chromecast needs an internet connection to work not just WiFi. Robert mentioned he may know of a workaround but didn't elaborate. It's a no go for me if it requires an internet connection.

I only found some workarounds using google. Since I'm always connected to internet (we have great data plans from our mobile carriers) I didn't look into the details.

I plan to use the 18/18 USB interface, so analog noise from the Pi shouldn't be a problem.
Using a Pi 2, I'd love it if I could:
- - Record all 18 tracks from USB (set-and-forget)
- - Play backing tracks and dead-air filler music to the same USB
- - Stream a talkback from the FOH device to the same USB
- - Stream the analog PFL back to the FOH device (because I can't see how to map it to USB and because I've tied up all 18 tracks in that direction anyway by recording them)
Am I nuts yet?
