My Squeezebox Radio does its duty most of the time. Unfortunately it depends on a single central service run by Logitech. Well, from time to time this service doesn't work which makes me wish for an alternative firmware that doesn't depend on such a service. Moreover it doesn't feel too good that I can login to mysqueezebox.com, press "Remote Control" and can control the box from there.
So here is my wish list for the alternative firmware:
- free and open source
- local configuration without a central server
- optionally controllable by http directly on the box
- support DLNA to play music available in the local network
- and last not least it should of course still play streams from the internet
As a starter I ported barebox to the Squeezebox. Currently only second stage loadable for the vendor supplied Redboot and apart from the UART no devices working yet. But still ...
Until I get further with porting a recent bootloader and Linux to it, feel free to contact me if you have a link to a free internet radio firmware.
