Using Squeezebox Touch as Part of a Whole Home System
Squeezebox Touch is just one member of a growing family of Squeezebox Wi-Fi music players. These products can be divided
into three categories:
1. All-in-one players feature built-in amplifiers and speakers, so you can place them anywhere within range of your
network without having to worry about connecting them to an audio system. Squeezebox Boom was our first all-in-one
network music player, with Squeezebox Radio the second product in this line.
2. Players including the Squeezebox Touch, Squeezebox Classic, and Squeezebox Transporter, connect to an audio
system. With these players, you can play your personal music library and Internet music on your Home stereo system.
3. Controllers operate any player on your network. In addition, Squeezebox Controller features a color screen and
connects wirelessly to your network, rather than using infrared, so you can control your Squeezebox from anywhere in
your house.
Install any combination of players from the Squeezebox family in your Home. You can fill your house with Squeezebox Boom
players, or have a Squeezebox Touch in the living room and a Squeezebox Boom in the bedroom, and more.

Squeezebox, try the following:
•
Make sure that your Squeezebox is within range of your wireless network and free from potential sources of
interference, such as cordless phones. As a test, move the Squeezebox closer to your router, reset it, and try
connecting again.
•
If you suspect that other wireless networks are preventing your Squeezebox from reliably connecting to your network,
try changing the channel your wireless router is operating on. For assistance with this and other router configuration
options, see your router’s documentation or contact your router manufacturer or ISP for support.
•
Unplug your router, wait 30 seconds, and plug it back in. Wait a few minutes and see if your network name now
appears in the list.
•
If your network name still does not appear, your router might be configured to not broadcast its SSID. In this case,
enter your network name manually:
a. Select the I don’t see my Network option at the bottom of the list of networks.
b. On the next screen select Enter my network name to enter it manually.

Squeezebox Touch Features Guide
Note: Network names (SSIDs) are case-sensitive. For example, if you’ve named your network MyNetwork, the name mynetwork
will not be accepted.
Note: For information about accessing and changing your router settings, refer to your router manual and your router Settings
page online, or contact your router manufacturer or ISP.
My network password was not accepted
If your wireless network password was not accepted:
•
Try entering your password again. There could be a typo.
•
If your network password is not accepted, it could be in ASCII format. (This only applies to WEP passwords that are
either 5 or 13 characters in length.) If your password is in ASCII format, convert it to hexadecimal. Search for an
ASCII-to-hex converter online, or use the converter at http://slimdevices.com/asciitohex.php.
Squeezebox Touch follows the 802.11 standard and uses hexadecimal keys for WEP encryption. WEP keys are 10 characters or
26 characters (for 64-bit and 128-bit encryption, respectively). If the password you’ve entered into Squeezebox Touch is only 5
or 13 characters long, then you have an ASCII encryption key, which must be converted to hexadecimal.
For more information about reasons your password might not be accepted, see the next section, Network connection was
not made.
A network connection was not made
After you enter your network password, if Squeezebox Touch cannot connect to your network, there could be a number of
reasons. Please try the following:
•
Confirm that you have entered the right network name and password.
•
Check to see if there are multiple networks of the same name in the list on your Squeezebox. If your wireless network
name is still set to the manufacturer’s default name, such as Linksys or Netgear, there might be multiple networks with
that name in your neighborhood and Squeezebox Touch could be attempting to connect to the wrong network.
If this is an issue, try connecting to another network or go to your router’s settings page online, rename your network,
and try the setup process again.
•
Enter a static IP address.—If you prefer to use a static IP address, make sure your DHCP server is off and, when
Squeezebox Touch displays the appropriate screen, input a static IP address.
By default, Squeezebox Touch relies on a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server to provide the IP address
during setup. If DHCP is disabled on your router, the Squeezebox will display an Address Problem screen during setup.
From there, you can enter your IP address, subnet mask, gateway address, and DNS server address. For help with this,
contact the person who set up your wireless network or your router vendor.
•
Turn MAC filtering off. Check to see if your router is using MAC filtering. If it is, and you cannot turn the filtering off, add
the Squeezebox Touch MAC addresses to the router’s table of allowed devices.
Find the MAC address of your Squeezebox printed on a label on the bottom of the unit.
MAC filtering provides an extra level of security by ensuring that no unknown computers or other devices can connect
to your wireless network without prior authorization.
•
Check the distance between Squeezebox Touch and your wireless router. If possible, move the Squeezebox and the
router closer together and try connecting again.
•
Unplug your router, wait 30 seconds, plug it back in and wait for a few minutes. Then try your password again.
Note: For answers to common questions about routers, go to the Logitech Knowledge Base at www.mysqueezebox.com >
Support. Under Troubleshooting, select your product, and search on your router brand name.
Note: For information about accessing and changing your router settings, refer to your router manual and your router settings
page online, or contact your ISP or router manufacturer.
Note: To check the wireless strength to your Squeezebox:
•
Go to Settings > Advanced > Diagnostics

Squeezebox Touch Features Guide
Sound is choppy, distorted, or skips
If your music quality is sub-standard, there could be excessive interference in your wireless connection, or the wireless signal
might be too weak for some other reason. Try the following:
•
If possible, move your Squeezebox and router closer together or remove sources of potential interference, such as
cordless phones.
•
You can also try connecting your Squeezebox directly to the router using an Ethernet cable. If this solves the problem,
then it is most likely being caused by weak wireless network signal strength or network interference.
To check the wireless signal strength on your Squeezebox:
•
Go to Settings > Advanced > Diagnostics.
FORWARD and REWIND buttons don’t seek
If the Forward and Rewind buttons on your Squeezebox Touch remote control are not working as you expect, it is likely that this
is due to the format of the song you are playing. Seeking is supported with the following formats:
•
MP3
•
FLAC
•
WMA standard
•
WAV
•
AIFF
•
OGG
•
AAC / M4A
•
Apple Lossless
Note: The progress bar toward the top of the touchscreen allows you to perform the seeking function, but the Forward and
Rewind buttons in the status bar of the touchscreen do not. The FWD and REW buttons on the remote control do provide the
seeking function.
Note: Seeking is not supported for AAC/M4A or Apple Lossless unless you are using Squeezebox Server on a computer.
Is my music format supported?
If your personal music collection will not play using Squeezebox Touch:
•
Make sure your music is not DRM protected. If your music was purchased from the iTunes Store before 2009, it may
contain DRM. If this is the case, Apple will remove DRM from tunes for a fee. “iTunes Plus” tracks and iTunes songs
purchased in 2009 or after are not DRM protected.
•
Make sure Squeezebox Server is running and that any firewalls on your system are correctly configured to allow
communication between your computer and the Squeezebox.
•
Check the file format of your music to be sure it is supported.
Squeezebox Touch can play music that is in the following formats:
• MP3
• FLAC
• WMA standard
• WAV
• AIFF
• Ogg Vorbis
• AAC/HE-AACv2
• HD-AAC
• Apple Lossless

Squeezebox Touch Features Guide
In addition, the following are automatically converted into supported formats by a transcoding engine that is built into
Squeezebox Server: WMA Lossless, Monkey’s Audio (.APE).
Squeezebox Touch recognizes playlists saved by a variety of music applications, including iTunes and Windows Media Player.
Supported playlist formats include: PLS files, M3U files (WinAMP) and WPL files (Windows Playlist).
My iTunes music isn’t playing from any device
Apple’s iTunes is a music manager that helps you organize your collection, rip CDs, and create and manage playlists. It also
connects to the iTunes Store where Apple offers music, videos, and podcasts for purchase. Much of the music purchased from
the iTunes store before 2009 is protected by Apple’s DRM software.
If your iTunes music is not playing with Squeezebox Touch, it is probably protected by Apple’s proprietary Digital Rights
Management (DRM) software. Other online music stores also apply DRM to downloaded tracks. If you’re not sure if your music is
protected by DRM, contact your online music store.
You can play tunes purchased from iTunes if:
•
You purchased “iTunes Plus” tunes, which are unencrypted and do not have DRM (digital rights management)
protection.
or
•
You purchased your iTunes in 2009 or after. As of 2009, Apple removed DRM protection from the songs sold at iTunes.
or
•
You have paid a fee to have Apple remove DRM from tunes that you purchased from iTunes before 2009.
My iTunes music isn’t playing from my computer
If your iTunes music isn’t playing, see the note about Apple’s Digital Rights Management (DRM) in the “My iTunes isn’t playing

The music library on my computer is not listed at My Music
The first time you select the My Music option from the Home menu, you will have a choice of selecting one or more computers
or devices that are running Squeezebox Server. Computers that are running Squeezebox Server will be listed as they have been
named for your network. Often the name will be something similar to JOHN-SMITH-COMPUTER.
Note: If you have named your music library in Squeezebox Server at Control Panel > Library, that is the name that will appear
when you select My Music from the Home menu at your Squeezebox.
Note: If you only have one local computer running Squeezebox Server, it will only appear the first time you select My Music.
Thereafter, you will be taken directly from My Music to the Artist-Albums-Genres menu.
If you want to play the music collection that is stored on your computer but your computer name/library name does not appear
at My Music:
•
Make sure that you’ve installed Squeezebox Server from www.mysqueezebox.com.

• You have a VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) and are serving different subnets for Wired and Wireless connections
• You are connecting Squeezebox Touch to a network other than yours
During normal operation, if Squeezebox Server is running on a computer that’s part of to your wireless network, your
computer’s name will be displayed in the title bar of the My Music menu on your Squeezebox.
Note: If you have named your music library in Squeezebox Server at Control Panel > Music Library, that is the name that will
appear when you select My Music from the Home menu at your Squeezebox.
If you’ve successfully completed the setup and your music collection won’t play on Squeezebox Touch, the issue could be the
file format of the music.
Is Squeezebox Server running?
To allow your Squeezebox to locate and connect to your computer, make sure that Squeezebox Server is running on your
computer.
1. If you have not yet downloaded and installed Squeezebox Server, go to www.mysqueezebox.com and click My Music,
or go directly to www.mysqueezebox.com/download.
2. To make sure Squeezebox Server is running:

might be the case in your environment, try the following:
•
As a quick way of diagnosing the issue, temporarily disable your firewall to allow Squeezebox Touch to communicate
with your computer.
•
If turning off your computer’s firewall allows Squeezebox Touch to connect to your music, your firewall is likely
configured to limit access to specific local hosts. Turn it back on and do the following:
a. If you are using a third-party firewall such as Trend Micro, Norton, McAfee or OneCare, please see our Knowledge
Base at www.mysqueezebox.com > Support. Under Troubleshooting, select your product and search for

Squeezebox Touch can’t find all of the personal music on my computer
After you download and install Squeezebox Server, it will scan your computer for music. An index of your music will be added to
the Squeezebox Music Library.
Make sure you have one music folder
If all of the music that you store on your computer does not show up from the Squeezebox My Music menu, make sure that
your music files are all in one place on your computer. You can store all of your files in a single folder, create subfolders to help
organize your music, or add shortcuts to files that are in other folders. The software you use to “rip” your CDs to digital files,
such as iTunes or Windows Media Player, may already do this.
Make sure Squeezebox Server is scanning the right folder
Also, verify that Squeezebox Server is scanning the folder that contains your music:
1. Windows: Click on the Squeezebox Server icon in the system tray. Select Open Control Panel.
Mac: Go to System Preferences > Squeezebox Server > Advanced.
2. Click on the Library tab.
3. Verify that the Music Folder points to the folder on your computer that contains your music. If not, enter the correct
path to your music folder and click Apply.
Check Tagging
If you don’t see your music listed as you expect when you go to My Music > Artists, Albums, it could be that it is not tagged
correctly. In this case, Squeezebox Server has successfully read all of your music but it is not listed as expected because music
tags are not set correctly or are absent entirely.
One way to confirm that incorrect tags are the issue:
•
From the Home menu, go to My Music > Albums.
See if your albums are not catalogued correctly, or if there is a listing for “No Album”. This is the category that Squeezebox
Server uses when it cannot find correct tags with which to categorize an album.
There are a number of free and fee tag editors. If your tag editor can clean out the tags entirely and re-create them, this will
frequently fix the issue.
Rescan your music folder
If Squeezebox Touch is not finding all of your music, try rescanning the music folder on your computer.
To manually rescan your music collection:
1. Windows: Click on the Squeezebox Server icon in the system tray. Select Open Control Panel.
Mac: Go to System Preferences > Squeezebox Server > Advanced.
2. In the Status tab, click Rescan.
This feature is also useful if you make frequent changes to your music collection.
