I have SC 7.2 running on a ReadyNAS Duo that works pretty well. My wife, however, is not that happy with the SqueezeController navigation menus, particularly using it to find a specific album out of the 300 or so on there. The web interface to SC is too slow to use, and I don't know if that is the ReadyNAS or SC or both.

In any case, can she use SqueezePlay on her Mac to interface with SC and control the various Squeezebox receivers around the house? That is what it sounds like from the forums. If so, is there a version of SqueezePlay that works with SC 7.2? I downloaded a SqueezePlay 7.3 but couldnt get that to connect to my SC; i assume its not backwards compatible.

Any help would be appreciated.

Squeezeplay is beta tied to 7.3. I suggest just waiting till 7.3 gets release.

Thanks. Is there a current estimate for when 7.3 will be released out of beta?

Looks like it's any day now, in theory:

It was bumped from early November though, so we'll have to see.
