View Full Version : A few questions!

I wonder if anyone can help me with a few Slimserver related questions, or
else point me in the direction of the answers.

1) Does/can the Roku Soundbridge work with Slimserver plugins, and if so
what are the differences with Squeezebox?

2) Is there a Slimserver skin that uses a touchscreen (or mouse only)
approach - or would it be possible to create one?

3) Can you run multiple copies of Silmserver on networked machines, all
pointing/using the same music library?

Thanks in advance.

I belive that the soundbridge works (sometimes) with an older version of
slimserver. There is no guarentee it will work with future versions.

The better display is the biggest seller with the squeezebox.

Yes, by sharing them via a netwrok share. Why would you want to do this
though? You can run multiple squeezeboxes on one server.
