Hi all,

Don't know if this is the right place to ask these kind of questions. Anyway, when I bought my SB Radio I hoped to have the ability to listen to last.fm.

Now it turns out I don't see last.fm application on the list of apps to install. How come? I'm aware of the licesning issues regarding last.fm, but this service *is* available in Poland - it's only just that you have to pay for it.

Is it a bug or "a feature"?

The built in (Logitech) Last.fm app only works in UK, US, and DE - as you say, for licencing reasons. However, look in the wiki (plugins section) or in the forums for Squeezescrobbler (a third party app that is not geographically restricted).

The limitation is that you have to run the Squeezebox Server software to get Squeezescrobbler working - it is not supported on mysb.com.

As far as I can see, the payed subscription only entitles you to play last.fm through their own player, not through third party applications.

Some users report that you get the option to download the last.fm app if you set your country to UK/US/Germany on MySB, but I don't know if it then actually works after you've installed it. Might be worth a try though.

If you have success with the third party plugin squeezescrobbler it would be nice to verify it here.
Than i can put Poland in the list here: http://forum.xtreamer.net/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=11403&p=83461#p83461

I did found this plugin last night. I can not test it, because i live in Germany.

Changing the country in mysb.com did the trick. I can now install last.fm application and listen to the radios.

Seems like a bug then...

I may try later with the plugins you suggested, thanks. As for now, I am using mysb.com on a daily basis. I start SC on my PC only from time to time.

When Touch is released, I'm going to use it with TinySC, so maybe then...

Same thing for us Swedes last.fm is available here and you can have a valid last.fm membership . But I also have to set my mysqueezebox.com account to "UK" to be able to use it .

The issue is clear as mud ? :)
