I recently got a Squeezebox Radio, and was happy to see that I could easily install the SBS software on my Windows Home Server. That part seemed to go ok, but here's the rub.
I have had a Roku Soundbridge for many years, and use Firefly Media Server to serve up the music to my Roku. I've used this setup for years, and have never had any issues whatsoever. That is, until I installed SBS. Firefly appears to be working fine, but when trying to play back music on the Roku now, it'll play back 5 - 20 seconds, then buffer...and buffer...and buffer. Looking in the logs, it appears that something is terminating the connection between the Roku and Firefly. I uninstalled SBS, and the Roku went back to working flawlessly.
So, SBS appears to be interfering with the Roku. I even tried having the Roku connect via Windows Media services, but would encounter the same types of buffering issues (on top of having it be very slow in the first place).
Does anyone else have experience with SBS and a Roku, specifically the M500? Or perhaps just some suggestions as to how to get things working peacefully together on my home network? Thanks!

i wonder if they are using the same ports, particularly 9000. Go into web settings: SbS > Settings > advanced > choose network dropdown and change your port from 9000 to something else.
