Hi,
i am recently back using my squeezebox (after a long period of no internet at home) and I wanted to see if I could get pandora running.
All the instructions mention to just install the app via my gallery on http://www.mysqueezebox.com/appgallery but pandora does't appear.
How many apps should I see in my gallery? I have about 24, not sure if I can add more to it.
Help appreciated

Are you in a Pandora allowed country?

As far as I know a few years ago pandora was't allowed, but we can stream it fine now via the web.

Unfortunately music services don't always act as expected. To be available
over the web in one place doesn't mean you are allowed to stream to a
device. Having good quality streams over the web doesn't mean you can get
them on your stereo. And so on.

Pandora isn't available on SB outside the US. I have no news that we are
allowed to stream there.

Ah ok thanks.
I'm checking out deezer and some others.

Is there a link that sums up what is happening with squeezebox (some questions I have below)? I've read the letter post from logitech.
will the SB still work without mysqueezebox.com site? I understand that saved radio links will disappear from the SB, but I gather one can just manually enter them into the SB without the site? Do we know when the site will be taken down?

No.

Local music will work fine. Internet radio will work with LMS 7.8. Music
services will depend on 3rd party support (plugins for Spotify or Qobuz
are already out there).

Those links won't disappear if you decide to set up an LMS in your home
before mysb.com goes away. Settings will be synchronized.

No.

There are several threads on this topic if you need more information.
