Is there a software switch to turn the headphone socket on and off? I seem to remember one, but cannot find it.

AFAIK it is always on, and not switchable.

It used to be the case that you could fix the output level of the digital outputs at 100%, but leave the analog outputs (headphone jack and RCA outputs) with variable volume control. That would give you a rough way of turning the headphones on or off. But firmwares for SB2/SB3 since last summer now have all outputs -- both digital outs and both analog outs -- always using the same output level.

I've had pretty good luck running *slightly* "wrong" firmware version from time-to-time (I tend to switch between the lastest stable release and the current "beta"), but I think you'd probably be stuck at SqueezeCenter 7.2.x or older if you really wanted that old capability. I wouldn't expect to run firmware from the 7.1 release with SqueezeCenter 7.3 or newer.
