Thanks a lot Jim
Tbis answers all my questions about not having posibility to have Live365
together with SPDIF for the moment.
But I hope that you have a possibility to solve it

It sort of depends... this isn't strictly a Squeezebox/SlimServer
problem, but that doesn't mean that we can't work around it.

Live365 does have some streams that are encoded at a sample rate that's
commonly implemented in S/PDIF hardware. The remaining streams are
hard-encoded to that sample rate, so most digital inputs don't understand.

Slimdevices has talked to Live365 about this, and the feedback that was
shared with me was that Live365 didn't feel they could adapt their
streams to support s/PDIF sample rates.

There's disucssion about dynamically resampling Live365 and similar
streams via LAME to support S/PDIF sample rates. This sounds a lot
easier than it is, unfortunately. I've been experimenting and getting
mixed results at best...

Cheers,
Jim
