If you only try one compressed format, try flac. It's lossless so no
headaches or stiff necks. You get reduced file sizes, metadata, and it's
supported natively by the SB.
Really, your life with your SB would be much easier is you use flac.

wav files are huge and they don't support metadata.
flac files are a fraction of the size yet give identical quality and support metadata.
It's a no-brainer.

after creating a new playlist to make it available in iTunes. If you
have a lot of existing playlists though, they'll be available all the
No matter how many rescan/library wipes I tried, plus a bunch of background manipulations of Name Artist Composer Song Title just to make some sense in the Squeezebox LCD, so I lost faith. Then I began the hard works in Slimserver itself to trick it with some success. I reckon if you got direct SB to Itunes support, I can get about 40 of my friends and co-workers to do a group purchase of SB. As it is now, I don't want them to beat me up out of anger dealing with Slimserver if I recommend it to them.
I will try the software you recommend, thank you. TN
