Difficult to explain why, but I could really use a squeezebox without a
display.

Does anyone have one with a broken display that they would like to sell?

Also one with a working display, but broken audio circuitrt would be equally
useful.

yes you figured it out, I need to seperate the visual and audio
functionalilty of the squeezebox into two different rooms.

Thanks,
Bruce.

Have a 1st generation slim player with bad display, no SB though.

Bruce--if the long cable doesn't work out then you might consider 2 separate
units--you could use the Shadowplay plugin to remotely control one unit from
the other:

That is what I was intending to do.
Hence the need for one unit with a broken display, and one unit with broken
audio section.

When I said seperate the two functions, I meant seperating the
functionality, not seperating a physical squeezebox.

Thanks for the reminder about shadow play, I was thinking I would have to
sync them.

Rgds,
Bruce.

assume shadow play works ok with softsqueeze.
I might end up using squeezebox as an interface only and having the music
generated by the PC.

Rgds,
Bruce.

Basically everything except the display would be great ??
If you have one that fits the bill, hopefully we could do a deal for it
along with a Squeezebox 2!!
