Hello,
I am the happy new owner of a squeezebox. The installation went well and in a very short notice I was able to launch Slimserver and use it as my music player.
I am now looking for a solution to continue to use itunes as my music player and connect it to the squeezebox.
How can I do that ?
Thanks in advance for your advices.

You can only play music on the Squeezebox through SlimServer or SqueezeNetwork.

You can still use iTunes as your music organizer and player for your PC, but you can't play music directly from iTunes through the Squeezebox. The same goes for all PC players and PC sounds.

There's one possibility: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?p=205598 but you may need a new sound card.

You mean use iTunes as your library manager a queue up music to play on the SB3? Only way I know is the workaround of using the plugin to capture what's being sent to your soundcard and route that to the SB3.

The OrangeCD library manager has native support for the slimserver API so can send music to be played, and the program can catalogue .flac formatted music.

Unless I'm mistaken, I believe you can do this with at least one PC player - JRivers Media Center. Check out this link:

I haven't tried it yet, but from how it is described you should be able to control multiple squeeze boxes using the same program.
