    I am a very happy user. Thanks for a great device and the pandora integration!

    I just want to drop a note that I am extremly pleased with the Squeezebox, the server software, the support and the new pandora integration.

    The device looks very good, the display is brilliant, the server software runs on linux, support answers questions quickly, the system is stable and reliable, internet radio works perfectly and I cannot express strong enough how cool the pandora integration is.

    So just two word to the slimdevices developers: THANK YOU.

    I agree -- the Pandora integration is amazing. Far exceeds expectations and
    I actually have a reason to retire my Slimp3's now... dang.

    Has anyone else got the same problem as we where when you pause a track from Pandora Radio for the first time it mutes the sound but doesn't actually pause it? Subsequent pauses work fine.

    Strange, you shouldn't be able to pause streams at all. It's a continuous stream and it can't be stopped. If you pause it, the data doesn't accumulate somewhere, it just keeps coming. Therefore pause of a stream = mute. It's strange that "subsequent" pauses work. The SB has a buffer to store data, although I believe for streams it's not extensively used.

    This is different than local files with SlimServer. You have the entire passage right on your disk so you can do whatever you like with it in terms of pause, fast-forward, rewind and stop.

    Right about here:

    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...5,0.346069&t=h

    Hope the URL didn't get munged. At this point Pandora is one of the few
    positive things about living in the US. :-)

    Me too. I'm a recovering audiogon-aholic, but it's killed my urge to upgrade. There's lots of potential in that box, if your system is up to revealing it.

    Everybody who _hates_ music should get one too, perhaps it would help set them straight.

    I reported the bug here:

    http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=3063

    But apparently Andy can't reproduce it. Nice to know I'm not crazy, though. :-)

    When you pause a Pandora stream, you're basically asking their server to pause the transmission.

    Actually, no. When you pause the stream, the player fades out
    (quickly) then simply stops playing out audio. The buffer will
    continue fill up with the remaining bits of the song. When you
    unpause, it should continue to play out.

    This is how it's supposed to work, but it sounds like the fade
    happens, but the audio continues to be decoded. Thanks for the bug
    report, we'll try to figure out what's going on.
