Two ideas actually:

1. Allow general files to be transfered via line out /
line in.
The transmitting jukebox could generate a modulated
audio signal from a data file. The receiving jukebox
could record to a wav file and then analyse it to
create a copy of the original data file. This could
allow files to be transdfered from one jukebox to
another without a PC or data cable.

2. Build some kind of p2p file sharing system based on
occasional access.

Wow! That's way out there... (Of course that would be
unbelievable to have :)

I was thinking, to my understanding it would be hard to
implement as some sort of varification code would be
necessary to verify data authentication... audio cables do not
receive the exact same wave that was produced.
Digital in/out, On the other hand, can deal with transferring
data with no problems and are secure as long as the cable
won't snap. maybe the first step would be implementing data
transfer on the digital line in/out?
