I have a Raspberry Pi in room 1 and an Audio amp that sends audio throughout the house in room 2 . There is no TV nor any kind of video display in room 2 near Amp.
Both rooms have access to WiFi and room 2 where the amp is has access via pseudo wired via powerline ethernet device.
The goal is to have raspberry Pi2 /OSMC send remote audio to an older Raspberry Pi 1 (re-purposed) . I know there are some Alsa and Pulseaudio tools that can do this but I have the following concerns:
I can not negate the local audio via HDMI as it needs to be user friendly enough that it always sends audio to (local) TV in room 1 and remote amp in room 2
Will the raspberry Pi 1 work as a remote audio server and is there some preferred distro for doing this?
How do I redirect the audio from the Pi2 / OSMC without disruption to the HDMI audio? Can I simply redirect the analog audio to the remote audio sink?
