Maybe a strange question to ask, but can I downgrade a SqueezeBoxG by means
of putting an old display in it? In other words, can I swap the displays of
an SB and an SBG ?
The reason I'm asking is that I have a SB-Wireless which I like to upgrade
to a SBG-Wireless. I might buy a SBG-wired and swap the displays and end up
with two working units where the wireless is the Graphic one.

That will work, but you'll need to solder the IR receiver board from
the player with the old display on to the new display board, otherwise
you won't have an IR sensor on that device.

You won't be able to move the wireless card to the wired player, as the
wired player will be missing the socket for the board and the antenna
header.
