I have a Touch on preorder and was wondering if somebody knew the answers to the following ...

1. How does it operate when it is connected to a Squeezeserver powered music library and there is a USB stick/drive connected at the same time ?
I currently run Squeezeserver (and plan to stick with that) but may want to occasionally connect a USB stick as well.
Will I be able to distinguish between the two libraries (e.g via a menu otion) or will the 2 libraries be automagically merged into one 'My Music' option ?

2. Does bridging of the ethernet port to wireless work (like the SB3) ?

Thanks in advance.

It will switch library so you will only see either the USB stick music or the SBS(Squeezebox Server) music. I'm not sure if it will automatically switch when you insert a USB stick or if it's a manual operation. I'm pretty sure it will be possible to use SBS even if there is a USB stick inserted in the Touch.

Thanks for that Erland.
The behaviour you describe sounds ideal.
I plan on sticking with Squeezeserver and may occasionally use a USB stick so the separation between USB and Squeezeserver suits me fine.

Do you happen to know if bridging works ?
