spent quite a while one Saturday afternoon trying to connect
to an AAC stream with a Barix. Then I read the fine print on
the Barix website. If it does not have the AAC sticker on
the bottom, it won’t do AAC. Old Exstreamers are out for
I saw at the NAB show that Barix has a new encoder box that
will encode ACC as well. I don’t recall what it was called.

Speaking of Barix codecs, is there any way
to upgrade an older box to make it able to decode an AAC+
stream? I tried a firmware update, but it did no good.
