Is it possible to pre define several webradio stations of your own choice and save it in the Squeezebox, and then turn off the computer.and be able to listen to them later on without haven to turn on the computer again?
Regards Mads.

If you, instead, define them on squeezenetwork, you can listen to them
at any time with the computer off if you connect your player to
squeezenetwork. This works for any players that are model SB2 or
newer. For squeezenetwork, check squeezenetwork.com

Does this mean that the squeezebox connects the squeezenetwork,and play the predefined stations,so the computer is only needed to setting up the stations?

basically yes. SqueezeNetwork is essentially a global slimserver. You
just need to set up the "favorites" that you want through that web site
and they are available any time you want. Eventually, slimserver and
squeezenetwork will have much more integration, allowing you to save
the favorites from one to load into the other, and possibly more in
future.

The only thing missing in SqueezeNetwork is the ability to upload your
own library ;)

Ok one last question, is there a limit on how many favorites you can ad to the squeezenetwork
Thanks Mads.

I don't use SqueezeNetwork all that often, but I don't think there's a limit.

Within reason though - maybe something weird would happen if you had 1000+ favorites. :-)
