Haha, I hope my slow days wil never come. I also hope that my Olives will live as long as I love music. But indeed, if needed, I would try to convert the database to a format that other streamers can accept. It's just that I never came across one that does the same for classical music as the Olive, but I have to admit that I did not search for it thoroughly.
A few days ago the cd-rom player in one of them seemed to be mal-functioning. It did not recognize cd's anymore that it still did a few hours earlier. I had a spare cd-rom player laying around, and I could easily swap them. Problem solved. For those purposes I even have a spare Olive 4.
I would not bother very much, I my Olive hadn't been modified in a musical sort of way, which made me in turn buy so much cd's and describe them. Which alas makes it a hassle to switch to another streamer. So that I try to avoid that.
