Ooops, sorry. I sent the first by accident before I finished.

Is it possible to connect and disconnect a SqueezeBox from SqueezeNetwork through the web interface? I know I can control a connected SqueezeBox from http://squeezenetwork.com/userHome, but only if it is already connected. My SqueezeBox lives in the basement and feeds a whole house stereo, so it kind of defeats the purpose if I have to go downstairs to connect and disconnect the SqueezeNetwork.

Thanks,
-Steve

Keep in mind, a Squeezebox never goes "off", it goes into standby, where it remains connected to the server, be it SqueezeNetwork or SlimServer.

With that in mind and based on the situation you describe in your last sentence, the best way would be to turn the player on and off through the web interface. It won't disconnect from SqueezeNetwork though, but will go into standby. You turn the player on and off through the power button on the upper right of the SqueezeNetwork home page.

Again, this will put the player into standby and will not disconnect it entirely. The only way to do that is to either interrupt power or connect it to SlimServer. Both have to be done through the remote.

If I understand your question correctly, the answer is no.

When it is connected to Squeezenetwork, a Squeezebox is not connected to the Slim Server and therefore not connected to the web interface feature of the Slimserver.

Mark,

Thanks for the reply. I guess I did not make myself clear. What I want to be
able to do is switch between SqueezeNetwork and SlimServer. To do this I now
need to go down to the basement and do it with the remote. This has not been
an issue before, since I could access all the internet radio through
SlimServer. But with Pandora being added to SqueezeNetwork I want to be able
to take advantage of that without down to the basement everytime I want to
access it. So really, what I need to be able to do is log in and out of
SqueezeNetwork remotely. Thanks again and sorry for the confusion.

Thanks Michael. That's what I was afraid of. Maybe this could be done through SqueezeNetwork or a combination of SqueezeNetwork and SlimServer. I guess it is time to file a feature request. Thanks again.
