I have a real SqueezeBox at last. A wonderful birthday present from a wonderful person.
Getting the SqueezeCentre software working on Solaris is hard or at least getting perl and it's required modules is really hard. Luckily for me a colleague had already done this and helped me out. In due course we hope to get an IPS package but since I needed nevada images that is no good for me at the moment.
The Squuezebox itself is fantastic although wireless turned out to be to unreliable with the box not being able to get beyond 25% into it's buffer and tonight with the bad weather tonight that dropped to 1% and no music. The final resting place for the Squeezebox has a CAT5 connection but until it can move there it is now sharing one of the ethernet over power brick with the 40" Sun Ray.
I now want one for each room.....
