Do I actually need to purchase new hardware to take advantage of this
or can I turn my mythbox into a squeeze server?  I had looked at
squeeze years ago and thought you could put the client anywhere but
needed physical hardware from squeeze (now logitech) to have this

I am happy to add a menu item to call up squeeze on my mythbox if I
can basically do this all without adding hardware.

Aside from those, nope.  Thanks.
