    There is a TuneIn plugin for LMS which is independent of mysqueezebox. What benefit do you expect to see from not using mysqueezebox?

    Hi I just thought that it might be one service less connecting to the internet and cutting ties to anything requiring a registration always sounds good - in a data transfer reduction privacy-sort of way. But frankly I don't know too much about it. I just thought oh well why not.
    RPI 3+ with LMS 8.2.0 -- RPI 2 with a Hifiberry DAC+ running PiCorePlayer -- SBR running Firmware 8.0 -- Plugins: Material Skin, MAI, Podcasts, Musik - folge mir, Squeezelite-X, Ratings Light, Exclude Folders -- DSM 6.2.2 (Synology Disk Station 115) has my music

    One benefit of using mysqueezebox.com is that it performs artwork resizing which otherwise would be done (generally more slowly) by your server. The more people.that use mysqueezebox also makes it less likely to be discontinued by Logitech. As far as privacy goes mysqueezebox is probably one of the most benign of the online services.

    And please note that this important piece of information is not only
    about shutting down mysb. But Logitech is paying for this forum, too. As
    well as for the build host, mailing list, etc. Keeping the community on
    these platforms is probably more important for many than mysb itself.

    While I am unhappy about Logitechĺs decision to stop making squeezebox hardware, I continue to buy Logitech accessories such as the tiny wireless mouse I use when I travel. My view of Logitech is favorable considering the continued support for this community. I am confident I can speak for many on this forum the appreciation we have for Michaelĺs dedication to keep the platform going. As always, thank you!
