You're confusing the ability of the squeezebox server to implement a
stream for a generic client with using the direct streaming protocol
of the server for accessing things like internet radio and Pandora
through a client.

What you have set up is the generic stream from the server, which
certainly works quite nicely.  But if you want something that
functions like a client of the squeezebox server (and can be synced
with other players and use the remote buttons to navigate your music
library through the squeezebox server), the generic stream won't work
unless I'm missing something.
