Sorry, I put this into the General Discussion section, not sure if that's where feature requests go.

For the SB3, I'd love to see an NTP client built into the piece directly. The SB is used as a clock in the living room (of course in addition to being one of my most prized pieces of audio equipment). Anyway, in the spirit of being more environmentally friendly, I'd like to turn my main machine off when not in use, but I'd like to have the clock functionality still work without a slimserver machine.

If this is already possible, and I have to do a better job at R<ing>TFM, then I appologize (again).

Cheers

Formal feature requests can be filed at http://bugs.slimdevices.com. In your case, one option would be to connect it to squeezenetwork when the server isn't available.

An NTP client built into the squeezebox is rather useless without a clock to set. Currently, there is no clock function in the squeezebox. When the squeezebox shows the time and date it is the server that runs the clock and merely sends a display update to the sb once a second.
The preliminary thing to have would be the clock in the sb. NTP could be a nice addition at a later stage.

-s.

As mentioned earlier, the best solution is to transparently switch to
SqueezeNetwork when the server goes away, and switch back when it
comes back. That whole transparent thing is easier said than done, and
the potential complaints are staggering.
