    Thanks for your really quick answers. Even though this is not what I wanted to hear.
    I think I will test the community-firmware and decide then what I will do.
    The charm of SB Touch for me was that I didn┤t needed any other gear.
    But perhaps it is a good training for my brain when I have to install a Rasperry into my system.

    Noooooo - is this the true death knell for the Squeezebox Touch?

    I only just got mine used from eBay complete with a good linear power supply - but is this as far as it goes now with LMS and SBT?

    I guess I will just have to eat humble "Pi" from here on in.

    Oh and Pi 3 or Pi 4 by the way - I will only be using coax out?

    [Announce] Community Firmware forSqueezebox Radio/Touch/Controller and LMS 8

    > Noooooo - is this the true death knell for the Squeezebox Touch?

    What exactly do you believe is the end of SB Touch?

    You can still use LMS, of course, just not the "TinyLMS" built in to the
    Touch. Install LMS wherever you want and use it. And yes, installing it
    on a Pi is a great choice.

    I think you have got the wrong end of the stick. The Touch works perfectly with LMS just not with the built in cut down server.

    Also, if you do want to use the built in "Tiny LMS", I don't see the downside in using the official firmware. I don't think there are big improvements in the community firmware for the Touch are there?

    If you're asking which to use (it wasn't clear), while the 3B is perfectly serviceable, just get a 4. I moved from a 3B to a 4 last year and full library scans went down from 20 mins to under 1 min, and the interface was noticeably faster - much improved processor, 2 USB 3 ports, faster networking. And all this for no noticeable increase in power consumption. The only reason I'd use an older Pi is if I had one knocking around doing nothing and was a real tightwad!
    Server: LMS 8.1.1 on piCorePlayer 7.0.0 on Pi 4B 2GB with library on 512GB USB drive
    Listening on: 2 x Squeezebox Radios 8.0.1 , and direct from the Pi using a Behringer UCA202 USB audio interface

    What size library do you have? Just curious as mine takes about 30 minutes on Windows.

    Sorry, I take that back. The last nightly full rescan took 12 minutes.

    20,081 mp3 files, 192 GB total size. Stored on a local USB 3 key plugged into the Pi 4B. I think it would be faster if I was using a USB3 SSD.

    Full scan takes 10:02, Look for new and changed files takes 00:52

    So "under 1 min" for a full scan was a slight exaggeration
