    Should I upgrade my SQ radio to a UE?

    What's the benefit? Is it better than SQ currently on v7.7.2?

    Is there any real differences?

    I basically use it for Internet radio and playing my music from my iMac. Can UE still do this?

    I'd like to be able to play direct from my iPhone but not sure if this can be done anyway.

    Thanks

    Internet Radio and playing from the Mac should still work, you'd have to install a new server software.

    You can still not play from the iPhone, though.

    Thanks, is there a benefit to make it a "UE" player rather than squeezebox radio?

    You can use iHeartRadio and you don't have to switch music sources (to MySB) when you shut down your server

    Should I upgrade my SQ radio to a UE?

    3rd party plugins. Compatibility with Squeezeboxes other than the Radio. 3rd Party Apps except for iPeng, saving playlists.

    Just dusted off my SQ again. Any updates on upgrading to UE, should I now? Had there been any forward updates for either UE or SQ?

    Cheers

    Hi,

    some say its a downgrade not an update...
    Me wouldnt do that, dont know if the UE Software is still in development like "SQ" or LMS.

    There's no benefit to it and you'll end up with a Radio that can't run on the same server as your other Squeezebox devices.

    If you have the itch to upgrade, then install the LMS 7.9 beta server. It's great.
