Regarding music playing at double speed, this is apparently an known problem with Squeezebox with internet radio at low bit rates dating back to 2004: http://forums.slimdevices.com/archive/index.php/t-7371.html An example that I've found is "Super Blues Radio" http://yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-sta...

Re: SqueezePlug Version 5 ready for download

@truehl, Thanks for your suggestions. Out of space it was--the logs for squeezeboxserver and squeezeslave showed that. I expanded rootfs and it now works, with top showing, for instance, squeezeboxserver at 3.3% cpu and squeezeslave at 5.2%. My 8gb sd card shows 23% use. There is another problem. Mo...

Re: SqueezePlug Version 5 ready for download

I installed squeezeplug v5 on my r-pi yesterday, including squeezeslave. I plugged in my 32g usb flash drive with 11K tunes on it. I could access squeezeplug:9000 and saw it scanning--up to 8K out of the 11K before I went to bed. Today I get "Could not connect to remote server" when I try squeezeplu...

Like where, if you would?

But I'd agree--a little more information about the status (current or anticipated upon release) of drivers or kernel enabling for i2c, spi, gpio, etc. would be helpful.
