Neufbox supports also AirPlay

Yesterday, we indicate that the Freebox was now compatible AirPlay, the wireless technology from Apple. But this is not the only one of FAIBox: the Neufbox is also compatible. SFR had the good sense to provide the code for the GPL Neufbox V4 but also - and this is an advantage - the ability to change the firmware of the case.

And a port of ShairPort (obviously that was also used Free) exists for the Neufbox V4. In addition to the firmware compatible, it is also a USB sound card (the Neufbox has no audio capability), a device that costs less than $ 5 on eBay. Note that - a priori as in Free - the technology uses a private key from an AirPort Express and it is therefore possible that Apple is blocking devices that use ShairPort in the future.

Especially when we know that - let us remember - Apple sells a license AirPlay has many builders and it is proposed (informally) to the price of gold, rumored $ 40.
