Hi all.

I have an SB Touch and my nephew occasionally brings his SB Radio over so we can listen to it outside.

We haven't been able to figure out how to get his radio to stream my music collection. He has the radio set up to stream his collection at home, from his PC.

When he is here, we stream Pandora over my Wi-Fi. No problem connecting to my router.

I use Squeezebox Server to stream from my Touch, not the internal server. Would be even better if I could also use iPeng, which is set up on my iPod Touch.

All software involved on my end is updated to latest stable firmwares.

Thanks for any info you can provide.

Log his SB Radio onto your SBS Server. It already sees your network or it wouldn't play Pandora. Press the Home Button, Select My Music>Switch Library> and pick your SBS Server from the list. Going back to My Music should show your Artists.

It's funny because I know I sounded like a total newb when I asked that question.

Thing is, that was one of the first things we tried. And it didn't work. There was definitely something wonky going on that day.

However, we tried it again (exactly as you posted) yesterday and it worked just fine.

I also switched iPeng over to his radio and we were jamming just like we wanted outside.

I wish I could remember what happened that first time, but at least it is working now.

Thanks for the info iPhone!
