Squeezebox

The Squeezebox is a Hi-Fi device that can stream digital music and Internet radio to your stereo. It has built in wireless network so you can place it anywhere. You can connect multiple Squeezeboxes to one SqueezeCenter - one per room if you like! And then either have them all play their own thing, or synchronize any or all of them together. You set a max bit rate to stream to individually Squeezeboxes so if you have one at remote location connected over the Internet, it can still play your favorite music collection from your home server, even if it is saved in an uncompressed or lossless format.

To re register a Squeezebox Duet controller You need to reset it to Factory Settings. Next time it is turned on, it will tell You what email address it is registred to, and give you the option to re register the controller.

Hjælp til Logitech Squeezebox Classic

Citat:

Det som oftest fejler i SB Classic (ver.3) er WiFi modulet som som sidder i den. Det får først displayet til at blinke for herefter at slukke helt og den ophører med at virke.

Jeg har skiftet modulet i min, der skal ikke loddes, da WiFi modulet er et mini-pci som sidder i et slot-in.

Modulet fås på E-bay, jeg bestilte det her:

How to open Squeezebox Radio

Its actually pretty simple once you figure it out (took awhile)!

  1. Carefully remove speaker grille using a credit card or a (plastic) putty knife if you have one.
  2. Remove the two T9 Torx screws to the right of speaker.
  3. Place your left thumb on the left side of the display panel and right thumb on the right side of the display panel. Press down slightly and slide the panel to the left.
  4. Carefully lift panel away from chassis noting wires for speaker, power and headphone jack remain attached to chassis.

It has a web based interface so it can be controlled from any PC. It includes the SoftSqueeze player you can install from your SqueezeCenters Home page (in the Help section).

SqueezeCenter support plugins, and a lot users have written plugins for almost everything like: Selecting what music to play, Games, Skins for the SqueezeCenter web interface, Remote controls.
