    Confusion: the basics of LMS and mysqueezebox.com

    I've had a Squeezebox Duet for 12 years, a Squeezebox Radio for the past 8 years and a Boom for about a year. I listen to radio (FM stations) and Pandora streaming. I don't listen to any music from internal digital sources. I don't know what I'm doing when I run into problems. I had an issue recently connecting to a new Tidal account. I just don't get the whole set up. I have LMS V 8.1.1 installed on my MacBook Air. I never play any music from my MacBook or any hard drive. I only stream from Internet sources.

    I'm confused about why I need LMS on my Mac. Does LMS on my Mac have anything to do with streaming from an Internet source. All the LMS setting and the web remote control (never use it) confuse the heck out of me. Could I delete it from my Mac and still successfully stream from the likes of Pandora and Tidal?

    Correct. TIDAL requires protocols and codecs which we can't support on
    mysqueezebox.com alone. Therefore you'll need to run LMS.

    Not TIDAL.

    I believe you'd be the perfect customer for the "Polyvection Core32
    gateway" (https://polyvection.com/de/produkt/core32/): a small, easy to
    set up box which runs enough LMS to get access to your streaming
    services. Alas, it's not available yet. You could buy a Raspberry Pi and
    install picoreplayer.org on it. It's not a turn key solution, but not
    hard to install either, and less expensive. Lots of discussion around
    the latter, and a lot of helpful people here.
