Thanks Jim

At last
Some kind of solution.
I use SPDIF output and a DAC.

If I want to use this one, is there any possibility to change some settings
in Slimserver.

Regards
Tore

Are you using the digital or analog output from the Squeezebox? There's
a known issue with Live365 streams decoding to a bitrate that's
incompatible with S/PDIF. The internal DAC works fine, so analog output
is more compatible.

I would hold off getting a VIP account at least until you can listen to
a free stream.

It shouldn't.
