Hello all.
I enjoy the ability to listen to an album online before deciding to buy. Musicmatch offers this through their On Demand service and other companies may as well. My question is....can I listen to these music on demand streams through Squeezebox 1? Thanks for any replies.

Wake on LAN is a very useful function of the new software. I used to
find it boring to have to go from my sittingroom to my computer room
to wake the computer

there are a couple of other things I would like to see, probably as
plugins. I couldn't write them myself.

1. I would like my Squeezebox to turn off after a certain period of
inactivity. Jason's PowerSave (if it still exists, I can't get it by
clicking on the link) is helpful but doesn't do exactly that.

2. (On a Mac, running Tiger) I can manually put my computer to sleep.
But the basic Energy Saver settings don't put it to sleep after a
period of time, I guess because SlimServer is always running. I
expect I could write a shell script to force sleep, and then some
variant of kdf's Execute Script plugin could run it from the
Squeezebox. But at present that script doesn't respond to enough
buttons on the remote.

Also, for those not experienced in reading plugins, I think a
detailed explanation is needed of where scripts have to go in order
for the plugin to see them (and, perhaps, of how to alter the plugin
if one wants to put the scripts somewhere else).
