    Cheers Chris,

    I think I've finally got my head around it. Currently listening to a Govt Mule album on Spotify Premium via Spotty. Good stuff, many thanks.

    I like everything really. From the britpop bands like UB40 right back to classic rock, like Wings. They're only the band the Beatles could have been.

    You're welcome Dave.
    You're back up and running, which is all that matters.

    There's always been an issue with Squeezebox Touch use, and this is users knowing which server they're on.
    Originally the Squeezebox devices were dependent on running on a computer or NAS running a server program, and the devices had to be pointed at it. You knew where your server was.
    Then Logitech brought out the Squeezebox Touch.
    Your server could be one of 3 (the embedded TinySC, www.mysqueezebox.com, and good old fashioned LMS), and if you're not au fait with knowing which server you're on, or how to switch between them, then life gets a little bit more difficult.

    Just to add to the confusion, TinySC announces itself as Logitech Media Server, which causes all sorts of problems (doesn't it Craig/Icehockeyboy?).

    Spotify changing their delivery method also highlights an upcoming issue with www.mysqueezebox.com, which is that one day Logitech will pull the plug, and that server will not longer be available, so another raft of users become disenchanted and alienated.

    The only thing that's likely to outlive the lot is LMS, because it's not developed or owned by Logitech, even though it has Logitech in the name.
    Logitech might protest at the use of the name Logitech (which they do own), so a renaming will be in order, and quite likely back to Squeezecenter.
    Chris

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    I'm sorry to be a bit dim, but is there anyway to run spotify on a SBT without the use of a second device? I only use my SBT for spotify and internet radio, I don't have a laptop or NAS on the system and don't really want to add one.

    Am I doomed?

    It sounds like you'll struggle as Spotty runs on the LMS server software, not on the SBT itself. If all you do is spotify and radio, I'd say flog the SBT whilst it's still worth a quid, buy the ubiquitous Chromecast audio and get used to spotify and radio via the phone or a cheap Android tablet.

    I've just had a look at how Chromecast audio works, and I hate to say it but I think you might be right. It's got optical out and it looks like a doddle to play spotify from a tablet through it.

    Spotify successfully running on my old tablet, I'll try to get into town over the weekend to pick up a chromecast audio, I went onto amazon to pick one up as we have prime, but that was a surprise I wasn't expecting.
