I want to test something, but i don't find how to do it.
=> Is it possible to add shoutcast radio or WMA streaming radio on the slimbox, and then connect to them without having turn on the computer. and how :)

This is called SqueezeNetwork - an internet server which will connect your
SB2 to Shoutcast and RadioIO streams, have an alarm clock and more. No
need for a locally run server.

However, it won't do WMA at this time. Only mp3, FLAC and WAV (if any exist)
streams are supported through SqueezeNetwork. Other native formats are
planned, and when those come along, streaming from SqueezeNetwork will be
supported for those formats.

That part I cannot answer. SqueezeNetwork itself isn't involved. It
is a matter of firmware in the Squeezebox 2. Due to licensing issues,
this firmware is not open source, and the work going on with firmware
isn't as exposed as it is for SlimServer.
