# Squeezebox Setup --- ###### [[User Guide|Roon User Guide]] > [[Audio|Audio]] > Squeezebox ## Getting Started **Step 1:** The first thing you should do is **turn off any Logitech Media Server (LMS) instances running on your network**. Roon's Squeezebox functionality works by emulating LMS--if LMS is running on your network, devices may find and associate with it, or become confused. **Step 2:** To set up Roon to work with Squeezebox, you'll need to turn on Roon's Squeezebox functionality. - Visit **Settings**, then select the **Setup tab** - Click yes next to _**Enable Squeezebox Support**_: : https://community.roonlabs.com/t/im-having-a-problem-with-roon-where-do-i-report-it/2185/ <img src='http://roon-kb.s3.amazonaws.com/bc5476ae-dfe5-461c-800b-6808034ab5c7.png'/> **Step 3:** Once Squeezebox Support is turned on, you'll be able to see your Squeezebox devices in the Audio tab of Settings. Enable the device you want Roon to stream to. You can also click the small Gear icon to configure settings for your devices once they've been enabled. **Step 4:** Once devices have been enabled, select then select them from the [Zones menu](https://kb.roonlabs.com/Zone), and Enjoy! ## Troubleshooting Device Discovery 1. Try power cycling the Squeezebox endpoints. We've noticed that some endpoints have trouble switching from LMS to Roon, particularly if LMS was running at the same machine as the Roon Server. 2. If that doesn't help, verify that the firewall settings on the machine running your Roon Core allow incoming connections. _(additional details [here](https://community.roonlabs.com/t/squeezebox-support-working-under-mac-but-not-pc/37099/2))_ 3. If that doesn't help, try typing in the IP address of your Roon server as a workaround. 4. If your device was associated with a previous Roon Core, you may need to go to My Music -> Switch Library on the Squeezebox device itself to associate it with a new Core. 5. If that doesn't work, [let us know]. ## mysqueezebox.com It is possible to use Roon alongside mysqueezebox.com. This provides a workaround for obtaining alarm or radio functionality that Roon does not currently provide. When an endpoint is in "Roon Mode", you can switch to mysqueezebox.com by pressing the "+" button on the front panel or remote (for devices with blue vacuum flourescent displays), or via the settings screens (for devices with LCDs). You can switch back to Roon using the pre-existing mechanism. ## Display preferences + Brightness (VFD devices only) Note that Roon is unable to render fonts on VFD devices, but we do support display of a Roon logo + any visualizers supported by your device. You can cycle through display options and brightness settings using the "Display" and "Brightness" buttons on your remote control. You can also make selections in Roon's Audio Settings for the device: <img src='http://roon-kb.s3.amazonaws.com/f1e2eb47-6834-4e9c-b033-dca8df6d2fcc.png'/> ## Notes on Squeezebox Touch with EDO Roon supports the EDO plugin availalable for the Squeezebox Touch. **You must have a 7.8.x firmware version installed on your Touch in order to take advantage of EDO with Roon**. If you have connected a DoP capable DAC to your Squeezebox Touch+EDO, you can instruct Roon to send DSD content using DoP instead of converting to PCM. This allows for bit-perfect DSD playback. ## Squeezelite/Software endpoints Roon does not support software implementations of squeezebox endpoints, and we do not test with them as part of our QA process. If you attempt to do this, you are on your own.
