    Do not buy Logitech's products if you think you need support later on

    I have an albeit older Squeezbox (SLIMP3) bought on a flea market. It works perfectly, but unfortunately, the previous owner can not be contacted,
    to de-register it, so that I can use it on my account. It still was an option which is mentioned in the display, to contact customer service for help
    with this issue by supplying the MAC-adress. Below is the response I got, which is disappointing, Logitech will not assist you, as they define any product
    that is re-sold, not in an authorized store, as "refurbished" as not supported anymore... :-(

    I think that the Logitech official response is reasonable.

    However, you have chosen to post this here on the Slimdevices forum, where we know for sure that at least one Logitech employee provides excellent support and has even this week been helping with an almost identical Slimp3 query.

    Your issue may well be the result of a bug in the way that devices are validated in MySqueeze.

    You mean just like Apple (and many others)?

    It is good to remember that the SLIMP3 was sold from 2001 to 2003, 16 years ago...

    I have quite a few pieces of Hi-Fi that still work perfectly
    For example I have a turntable that I remember buying in early February 1976 - its been serviced a few times admittedly but it is still working perfectly. OK it doesn't have much electronics inside it but I have 2 x Sony amps from the 90s that are still fully operational as well.
    VB2.4 storage QNAP TS419p (NFS)
    Living Room Joggler & Pi4/Khadas -> Onkyo TXNR686 -> Celestion F20s
    Office Joggler & Pi3 -> Denon RCD N8 -> Celestion F10s
    Dining Room SB Boom
    Kitchen UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) Pi Zero+DAC ->ToppingTP21 ->AKG Headphones
    Bedroom (TV) & Bathroom SB Touch ->Denon AVR ->Mordaunt Short M10s + Kef ceiling speakers
    Guest Room Joggler > Topping Amp -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Everything controlled by iPeng & Material on iOS

    The real problem OP had was not the product didn't work but that customer support couldn't help.
    Can you get help from customer support for the Palm Treo or the Sony amps.

    Logitech customer was poor in not redirecting the OP to this forum & Michael and thread title is a bit OTT.

    I have a Hallicrafters 101 Mk III shortwave radio from 1958 that still works. It's a heavy beast!
