Updating firmware on airport express
Check out more information on when and how to reset your SMC.Air Play is a proprietary protocol stack/suite developed by Apple Inc.This makes it possible to always send audio data unprocessed at its original full volume, preventing sound quality deterioration due to reduction in bit depth and thus sound quality which would otherwise occur if changes in volume were made to the source stream before transmitting.It also makes possible the streaming of one source to multiple targets each with its own volume control.The streams are transcoded using the Apple Lossless codec with 44100 Hz and 2 channels symmetrically encrypted with AES, requiring the receiver to have access to the appropriate key to decrypt the streams.
Originally implemented only in Apple's software and devices, it was called Air Tunes and used for audio only.
Song titles, artists, album names, elapsed and remaining time, and album artwork can appear on Air Play-enabled speakers with graphical displays.
Often these receivers are built to only support the audio component of Air Play, much like Air Tunes.
I don’t know why but when I upgraded to Snow Leopard my wireless internet got all wonky, connections were dropping left and right and I couldn’t maintain any worthwhile airport connection for longer than a few minutes.
DHCP was behaving particularly strange and the automatic settings pulled from my router were dropping every few seconds.
