FYI Richard I have just been listening to Squeezebox and one Softsqueeze
synced. I closed down Softsqueeze via the little x button mid song and the
music from my Squeezebox instantly stopped. I then went and unsynced
Softsqueeze from Squeezebox and when I selected a new song the Squeezebox
played it correctly (i.e. I could hear it!).
