iPad radio control

I’ve spent a lot of time trying to control the K3 from the iPad, and I’m so close I can taste it, but never have succeeded. I’m using an iPad App called Jump, that streams the audio back to the iPad, as well as controlling the remote computer.
It works very well, except I can’t get it to stream audio from the computer’s sound card output. I know I’m missing a small setting somewhere, but I’ve been through every menu I can think of, and I haven’t found it.
I can stream other audio from the computer back to the iPad. I can hear the sounds, play a Youtube video, etc, and hear it on iPad. But I can’t get the audio out from the sound card.
I did have it running the other night where I controlled the radio with the iPad, and used Skype to send audio back to my iPhone, but then I’m using two devices. If the iPad would multi-task, I’d be there.
I’m running Vista on my comptuer, by the way. Anyone have any ideas, I’d be glad to hear them. For the moment, I’m ready to admit failure on this one.

More on iPad

Still trying to get the iPad to control the radio. I was hoping my next post would be a step by step description of how I did it, but still missing the last step. I can’t get the audio to output a from the right port on the computer. Sometimes I wonder why I derive myself nuts with this stuff.

IPad post

Ok, this is the first post I’ve tried to make by actually typing on the iPad. It works, but is going to take some getting used to the keyboard. The iPad is an interesting toy, and I’ve almost got it sete to where I can control a radio remotely and stream audio back to the iPad. I don’t have the audio part working yet, but I’ll figure out my mistake soon.
This morning I made a nice QSO with Pete K4BKD, who I’ve talked to multiple times. It was a good saturday morning cw chat, we talked about weather, radio, dogs, radios, cars, and pollen counts, all at 25 words per minute using Morse code. Fun.
