    Blackberry Playbook -> LMS on Mac Mini

    afternoon
    i have a couple of SBTs that wont connect to router !
    my music library is on the mac mini [upstairs] on itunes and accessed by SBT [downstairs] attached to hifi.
    im wondering is there a way of a Blackberry Playbook accessing the music library on the mac mini on wifi a la SBT ?
    is there some software or app etc that would allow this?

    This is the problem you need to solve. Are you running latest LMS?

    On the back of the Touch above the power port is a small button. Press and hold it for 10 seconds. Touch should take you through the initial sign-on process and find your new router.

    Note that squeezeboxes don't do N or AC wifi or 5GHz .

    You must setup one 800.11g 2.4Ghz network .

    Your new router should have dual band ( best option ) or a compatibility mode of some kind so older stuff can connect .

    Or repurpose the old router as access piont .

    Hi Liam,

    There are two apps for your Blackberry Playbook that you should look at. The first is 'Squeeze2PB' which turns your Playbook in to a Squeezebox player and the second is 'Music2Touch' which turns your Playbook in to a Squeezebox controller. Both are free and both are excellent !
