Slimserver + PC but without Squeezebox (for now)
I plan on a Squeezebox purchase in a few months , but for now, I plan to setup a spare networked PC which will have :
- network and /or local access to music media.
- an LCD display
- wireless keybaord
- hidden system box
- digital connection to the AVR system in that room.
- no Squeezebox
I know I can use any music manager ( ie ITunes or Media Monkey) to control music access and playback, and dont need SlimServer at all, but my question is this:
Can I still download slimserver ( now called Squeeze Centre - I assume its still free), along with numrous plugins, and have enhanced functionality on the screen, ie news, weather, call display, music screen saver etc???
Also, does anyone have screenshots of what the above looks like on a PC??
