Just received my squeezbox today. With a little help from Kevin at SlimDevices (thank you) I am up and running. My question centers on the RealSlim plug-in. When I run it, it asks me to log on to Rhapsody. Is there a way to auto log on to Rhapsody from the squeezbox so I don't have to run Rhapsody?

RealSlim relies on the Rhapsody application for playback - it can't get
access to Rhapsody metadata and content without the application running.
An earlier version of the plugin (v0.4) tried to autolaunch the
application and keep it running, but this feature didn't work well when
SlimServer was run as a Windows service. You might try the earlier
version if you really want the autolaunch feature and you're willing to
run SlimServer as an application.
