The original slimdevices paradigm was to control most everything from 
the server.  This includes the music buffer - or at least that part of 
the buffer which is in memory.  If the hardware adds any significant 
buffering (or, more importantly, a different amount of buffering), then 
sync'ing between two dissimilar clients will be problematic.

That said, I'm not going to go as far as to say two different 
mythsqueeze boxes will sync to each other.  But, I will say, if they 
have identical audio hardware, it is possible.

Good luck and post your findings!
