Thanks Sean.
I am aware of that, but I currently live in listed building (called The
Hobbits Rest) which I do not own. The only phone point is in the lounge
(very near the Squeezebox) so I am a bit stuck. However, I am actually
surprised at how infrequent the drop outs are with this set up. For now I
have gone back to MP3s and radio (which appear to work fine). I'll leave the
flacs till I buy a house high enough for me to stand up in (hopefully before
I develop a permananent stoop).
