Now that Kazoo has been released will Kinsky disappear?

No. Kinsky will remain available. If this changes we will let you know.

What is Kazoo Server?

Kazoo server is a media server that implements the standard UPnP/AV media server specification and the OpenHome Media (ohMedia) Server specification. The ohMedia server specification is analogous to the ohMedia renderer specification that the Linn DS implements. The ohMedia server specification is what has made Kazoo's browsing and searching experience possible and it will allow further improvements in the future.

Can I use both Kinsky and Kazoo to control my Linn system?

Yes. Kinsky and Kazoo will operate correctly when used together in a Linn system, both when run on different devices and when run on the same device.

I currently run a media server on a linux-based NAS; can I try Kazoo?

Absolutely. Kazoo works with both the ohMedia server specification and the UPnP/AV media server specification. However, the new browse and search features will only be available if you use Kazoo Server.

I have playlists that I created using Kinsky; will they still work?

Not yet. Kazoo has no support for saved playlists. However, playlists are on our list of features to add to Kazoo. If playlist support is an important feature for you please continue to use Kinsky.

I use the Kinsky BBC plugin/Songbox BBC plugin with Kinsky; can I still do this with Kazoo?

Not yet. Kazoo has no support for media apps. However, media apps support is on our list of features to add to Kazoo. If media apps support is an important feature for you please continue to use Kinsky.


How do I get my classical music to appear under the classical tab?

You need have tagged your classical tracks with the composer tag and have “Classical” in a genre tag. Note that “Classical” needs to start with a capital C! You can tag your tracks using your favourite tag editor.

I have a UPnP/AV media renderer can I control this with Kazoo?

Not yet. Kazoo only supports ohMedia renderers. However, support for UPnP/AV media renderers is on our list of features to add to Kazoo.
