·  Can the Rio Car player be used as a server for the Rio Receiver?
 (Entry last updated on July 16th, 2004)

Not at this time. There is no Rio Receiver server built into the car player software.

Although it is possible to port the server software to Linux and run it on the car player (someone actually demo'd this very thing at one of the user meets), the database code eats up a lot of memory. So having the player be a server and also having it continue to work as a player at the same time probably isn't going to work very well.

You're welcome to give it a shot yourself, if you like. If you come up with something that works well, let us know.

Please note that with the proper software, you can stream songs from the player via ethernet, but this is not the same thing as being a Rio Receiver server.
