Is the above new players capable of running both SC and TinySC? And is it preferable to run TinySC with the Squeezebox Radio supplying the music from a NAS instead of both supplying music AND having SC run on the NAS?

The SB Touch runs TinySC, but the SB Radio does not. If you want to run TinySC on the SB Touch and access a music library on your NAS (as opposed to a direct USB connection to the Touch) you will need to run the commands or edit /etc/fstab to (logically) mount the NAS as a file system on the Touch.

As long as you need the NAS running for your music library I don't see any advantage to running TinySC on the Touch, unless for some reason you have a hard time running SC/SBS on the NAS. Otherwise, running SC/SBS on the NAS has the advantages of having a web interface and supporting plugins, neither of which are supported by TinySC.

Thanx for the info!
