Hi,

one (maybe stupid) question:
I plan to buy the squeezebox and want to know a bit about functionality:

I want to use the squeezebox mainly as internet radio player. Do I need to
boot my PC to listen radio or does the box work without the PC? Which
formats can I use with/without server?

Thanks!
Stefan

The Squeezebox is dependent on the SlimServer for everything. If the
machine isn't on, the Squeezebox will not work.
