Hi

Have an older squeezebox and slimserver on a desktop mac that is wired to living room speakers..

Have had it for a couple of years but feel i am not using it to its fullest..

One difficulty i have always had is setting up the music library...music is in itunes but actually we have a shared library with 2 different itunes set up under different users with the complete library under a shared folder..

So i get confused about whether to use itunes under slimserver or just point to the shared folder..

Any suggestions to the above and any guidance to a document that is better for a non-tech re general set up?

Thanks

I would just point the SqueezeBoxServer (formerly known as SqueezeCenter/SlimServer) to the shared folder and avoid the iTunes option within SBS.

Here's the SBS install guide for Macs:
