View Full Version : SqueezeNetwork - Slimserver - SB2 prefs

Is there a way to save the display preferences (or for that matter, other prefs) from Slimserver, out to SqueezeNetwork?

It would be nice to have my SB2 look and act the same when I use SqueezeNetwork as when I use Slimserver. The thing I notice right away is how the display scrolling acts (I have scrolling set to 2 pixels, for example on Slimserver, so when I go to SqueezeNetwork, it looks "jumpy.")

If this is not already available, it seems there are at least two methods:

1) Log into SQN's website and click on a button to have SQN read and apply local slimserver prefs.

2) Save local prefs out in the SB2 vs. (or in addition to) in slimserver.

Of course, this does not address issues like bandwidth of the SQN server for the smooth scrolling, for example.

Ideas/comments?

Not yet, but we do plan on adding some settings synchronization
between SlimServer and SqueezeNetwork in a future release.

I hope readers won't mind my hi-jacking Dave's thread, but I would like to
expand on this a little:

I was (am) very impressed with SqueezeNetwork. But I am also one who likes to
drive his SB from an iPAQ (I know the SB's display's brilliant but me
eyesight's not what it used to be). And I don't like the (lack of)
integration between SlimServer and SqueezeNetwork, the fact that players which
are logged in to SqueezeNetwork vanish completely from SlimServer's radar.

I understand that the point of SqueezeNetwork is to provide feeds in the
absence of a SlimServer. It's just that mine's forever present and I'd
appreciate if the two offerings could be integrated beyond a simple exchange
of preferences.

Bottom line: I'd like to be able to browse SqueezeNetwork from my iPAQ.

in what way? the internet radio streams offered on squeezenetwork are
the same
as those found on slimserver. Sharing prefs will allow ssharing the
favourites
that are already stored on the squeezenetwork profile. If you iPaq has an
internet connection, then you should also be able to access the squeezenetwork
web page.

It might be worth clarifying just what functionality you feel is missing.

What I'd like to see is this; when SlimServer can't be found it automatically goes to the SqueezeNetwork to show the clock, and when SlimServer is available it swaps back over. That is unless you manually left it on the SqueezeNetwork when you last turned off the SB2.

And I'm not too happy that the dispay dims whilst using the SqueezeNetwork, when I prefer my display to run at full brightness all the time.

Other than that, it rocks. Keep up the good work.

I'm confused as to why you're using SN if your server is always up?

Doesn't your ipaq have a browser?

Ok, I get it. I did not realize that somehow I can control my SB2 in SN mode
via the SN page. My IPAQ's home is the SS, so I would need to navigate to the
SN page when my SB2's on SN. Hm...

I guess what I am saying is that the SN offering should come via the normal SS
skin. But I shall research the SN website - the thought had not occured to me.

Thanks - ovr.
