Perhaps I misspoke regarding this idea. The only way I would do this is if the transmitters were spread out far enough so as to not interfere with their individual signals.
So, for instance, the transmitter at my house covers say a one block radius. I would put another transmitter three or four blocks down and have that transmitter air the private stream. The range I mentioned here are just numbers. It’s just easiest to use those as an example. As for synching over the Internet as a whole: I really don’t think it’s a viable option. Latency is too much of an issue.
HOWEVER: I wonder if you could do that with your wireless network. So, let’s say you have a stream set up on one of your home computers. Instead of getting it over the Internet, you could use your wireless router. I do this with my iTunes library at home over a LAN and it seems to work well. The only downside is that you’d have to have a computer to decode the stream, set up some high-gain antennas, then cross your fingers hoping the wireless signal doesn’t drop off the face of the earth. Of course, I suppose there still could be some latency issues, and the cost for some people might be a bit prohibitive. Just a thought … for what it’s worth. Sounds a little crazy, I know!
