Controlling multiple clients?

I'll explain the hypothetical setup. 1 sage server and 6 clients, each client would be a zone in the house. Is there a way to send a sms, telnet, or text command to all clients. For example I want all rooms to be playing the same music or movie etc.

Short answer: not with Sage directly. If you search the forums for distributed or zone control, you may find some alternatives.

It has been listed as a wish for Sage 7.0, but that has no meaning on whether or not it will be implemented.

I asked something like this several years ago, my particular application wanting to simulcast to a couple of clients and pause/rewind etc all synchronously during a SuperBowl party.

Jeff actually responded and said (at the time) that it was "possible, but not easy".

I would be very interested in this and think it would be really cool if implemented in V7.

See really old thread here:
