the only payment is if you were using sc_trans for MP3 encoding which requires an unlock code due to MP3 licensing requirements. that is completely different to an authhash and despite everything in the docs, etc this false view that an authhash is not free keeps coming up and I'd love to know where people keep finding / being told that is the case when it is absolutely not.

as long as you setup the DNAS correctly e.g. all required port forwarding and get the source dsp connected to it, making the authhash is simple to do (as per the docs) and then its like before.
Thanky DrO
Is there anyway you can put a DNAS example with the authhash. How it looks so I can see what it looks like please!

So I can get the idea as to it is suppose to look like.

So I don't need the sc_trans?
I only need winamp,dsp & dnas?
I can still play mp3's with out the transcoder right?

Is the v1 DNAS still available or is it unstable now & I should use v2 DNAS?
