Secondly, to add that the 'squeezebox player' can, and usually should, be added to a room with no md.
Each media player needs a dedicated "room".
posde, as it is a little confusing, and I don't think I fully understand, could you (or someone else) provide a brief description of how an 'EA' (Entertainment Area) and a 'Room' are similar/different. I've always thought I could create more than one EA for a Room (say MD and standalone squeezebox). But to have proper integration I've always had to create a new 'Room' for each media player (MD, squeezebox, etc.). I don't want to hi-jack the thread (happy if this has to go to a new one) but I've wondered.Thanks,J.
