So are you saying that the Roku devices behave just like a Squeezebox then?
It was a question I asked earlier but didn't get any replies to.

they have an emulation mode that connects to slimserver. it doesn't work with
slimserver 5.4 or newer, and behaves, I expect, must like an squeezebox with an
old display and comes with zero support as to its function with slimserver.
