Different Machines For LMS and Squeezelite
If you're using Squeezelite with LMS, you can configure SnakeoilOS as a 2 PC setup, where one machine runs only the Logitech Media Server, and the other runs only the Squeezelite client.
The are at least two advantages of using this setup:
- Ability to create multiple "zones" (one Squeezelite client being one zone)
- Splitting LMS and Squeezelite into two machines may yield a sound quality improvement
For this configuration please ensure you have activated ALL your SnakeoilOS machines. Enter your activation code for all your machines - you do not need unique activation codes for different machines.
