Hi

I hope you can answer these questions:

1) Is it posible to connect a squeezebox to a slimserver, when the slimserver is outside to local network?

2) Is it posible to stream a internet radio stream to the squeezebox from the slimserver?

3) Can the Squeezebox start automaticly with a timer, and start a stream from Slimserver?

Best regards

Mrorvig

Yes, but bandwidth may be a problem.


2) Is it posible to stream a internet radio stream to the squeezebox from the slimserver?

Yes.


3) Can the Squeezebox start automaticly with a timer, and start a stream from Slimserver?

Not with a timer, but it can be started from SlimServer.

BTW you can download SlimServer right now and start playing with it.

Thank you for a quick replay!

What if the Squeezebox looses power and has to restart? Will it automaticly connect to the Slimserver again?

yes.

(the turn-on-and-start-playing, btw, is doable with the Alarm plugin that comes with the server... my bedroom SB is my alarm clock. Of course, the server has to be on for this to work...)

Yes I believe it does that. There are settings to control this.
