I would like to play streamed music which is not available on mysqueezebox.com. eg Nokia mix radio using my surface 2 as a controller and send it to a DLNA renderer. I can do this to my AV amp (DLNA player) but I have another squeezebox classic and non-dlna amp in another room. My network sees the squeezebox as a media device. In Nokia mix radio and media monkey metro app I can select devices from charm menu and select the squeezebox but it does not play even with music playing on the tablet first.

Is this possible and how?

I'd like to do something similar:
I've got some music stored locally on my mobile phone (Sony xperia m) and my Squeezebox Touch players are recognised as DLNA renderers by the phone. However, if I throw some music at them, they won't play - I get something like "forbidden" on the Touch screen.
I wonder if this could work at all.
