224.0.0.0 is a multicast address and many switches (especially pro/consumer level gear) block multicast by default so that may work on larger networks it will rarely work on smaller ones.

CIDR is simply a different way to express a subnet mask. 255.255.255.0 = /24.

That is pretty much all the home networking/audio networking person needs to know to keep things simple IMO. I've needed to use CIDR in home networking before. That is why I brought it up.

Nothting about complex addressing schemes. :)

Classless IP adresses are typically used with WAN connections.  Classful IP addressing, especially using Class C addresses, is more than sufficient for small private networks.
