For whatever reason, you've decided to run more than one Squeezebox server (LMS) on your LAN. Setting up a second server is not too hard. The next question is, how do we direct the players on the network to whichever server we want them to use? Easy, really.

Here's some examples of how to do it.

Squeezeplay running on a Windows, Mac or Linux computer:

  • From the main menu navigate to My Music / Switch Library
  • You should see all of your libraries (servers) listed, including any remote libraries you've set up.
  • Select the library you want to use

Logitech Squeezebox Touch and Logitech Squeezebox Duet

  • From the main menu navigate to My Music / Switch Library
  • You should see all of your libraries (servers) listed, including any remote libraries you've set up.
  • Select the library you want to use

Logitech Squeezebox Boom

  • From the main menu, navigate to Settings / Music Source
  • You should see all of your libraries (servers) listed, including any remote libraries you've set up
  • Select the library you want to use
  • Your player will connect to the new server.

Squeezelite running on a Raspberry Pi using PiCorePlayer

  • Make a note of the IP address of the player, and also of the LMS server you want to switch to 
  • Access the player web interface using the IP address plus port :80 (Port :8077 if using an early version of PiCorePlayer)
  • In the PiCorePlayer menu, go to the tab 'Squeezelite Settings'
  • Scroll down the page and find the field 'Squeezelite server IP' and enter the LMS server IP address 
  • Click 'Submit'
  • Go back to the 'Main Page' tab
  • Click the Restart button ("Restart Squeezelite with new settings")
  • Your player will connect to the new server.

Most other Squeeze devices can be redirected using one of the above sequences. Please let us know of any exceptions.
