Logitech Media Server (was Squeezebox Server) is a revolutionary approach to music playback, which frees you from the hassles of fragile, expensive compact discs. It presents an entirely new way of accessing and enjoying your music collection. Instead of storing your music on CDs or memory cards, the SlimServer uses your home network to access the music stored on your computer. Imagine having lightning-fast access to any song in your collection, from any room of your home, with no limit to the size of your music library.

The latest server rocks as always. What other software can stream 124 bit flac CD quality sound from any computer in the house without a single hiccup. It will also give you the weather, NCAA or NFL or any scores you desire. It can give you a stock ticker too. Of course you need to own the hardware but it is totally worth it.

I use it on Synology DS210j (so its Synology modded for their NAS systems) and I wish Logitech would done it by themselves. Synology is still 7.5.1, which sucks, btw.

This new version (though it is still 32 bits) is a complete eye candy ! Actually it rocks as never. Fully compatible with snow leo and itunes 9, the remote is now faster for loading, transmitting, improved stability of network also.
Logitech was very reactive for this time ! (we regret it's not the same about mice). Keep on developing when it has to be such a victory.

OMG, Is anybody else using this? It rocks! I wish I had an excuse for getting the new mobile model. I think people see this as the same as playing tunes on a stereo with an ipod BUT it is not. You can play anything off your computer > 356 mbs You can actually broadcast cd quality music. This is way different than the 128 mbs recording on your ipod.

From looking at the iTV Web site I can't tell What itv does or is. SlimServer on the other hand is a piece of hardware and the software that goes with it. You can then stream your Music (no tv) to your audio equipment. This includes all itunes music and play lists or any other music on your computer. You can stream any Internet radio station you want without having a computer on. This includes your personal pandora radio stations as well as last.fm and others. It also has awsome plugins that display on the screen of the device. For instance, you can stream the weather from a rapid fire weather station down the street from you and get real time temp, wind, preasure and such from your neighbors weather station. You can also display stock market tickers and sports scores. Also you can write your own plugin and have it do what ever you want. I highly recommend the device. You can probably pick up an older one on ebay for cheap (slim1, slim2) and they still work great. They also have two new devices that look great for home and now portable audio. Cool stuff.

Been using this since first gen SLIMP3 player on a Green iMac G3. The server, plus some plugins, and the Java Softsqueeze combine to make a very useful whole house sync or independent music distribution system.

Current version 6.5 is very good on my G5 1.8. Infrequently loses sync with wireless remote head units or Macs when heavy action on the server Mac. Very reliable distribution of asynchronous music to head units.

Can't beat the price. [ Anxiously awaiting impact of recent acquisition of SLIMs parent company.]

This is a great idea, an open-source controller for their hardware box. There are tons of features, lots of room for customization, and the menus are well-organized. The ability to play internet radio in my living room makes it worthwhile in itself.

However, the software is too buggy. I get frequent pauses in the music, and occasionally the box loses the connection with the server entirely. Sometimes the server also shuts down for no apparent reason, and without logging anything. If they can work out the bugs, this will be a really nice server. Until then, it's kind of frustrating.

As of version 7.2 this software has been flawless for me. I leave it run 24/7 and have no problems. I thought I would add this even though the original comment was for a very old version (2005?). 7.3 is out now but I have only been running it for a few hours. I expect only good things from it. Logitech owns and developes the device now but I think the server is still open source.

This is actually a decent thing. It works pretty well - not great - a little touchy, and counter intuitive at times - feels a bit like a Windoze app that's been ported over to the light side of the force - but it does what it should, and it's handy and simple enough to be useful. Not to finicky to set up, but does require some knowledge of your system and general computer-ness to be of any help. It's not going to work out the stuff for you.
