I have an Elan G system with latest software.
I have read on the Elan news release that Pandora is built in the HC controller.
I am now told that you need a separate media box for this.
Currently I am running Shoutcast without a separate box.
Can anyone tell me if this information regarding Pandora is correct?
Do I need to buy an extra media server?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The only service that is currently available built-in on the HC controller is Shoutcast. I believe they were planning more services/apps but then realized that others have already done this with better and more options (i.e. Logitech Squeezebox) and it wasn't worth their time. Elan needs to concentrate on their hardware, controller software and drivers and leave source material to others.

I would suggest building your own Vortexbox or if that isn't an option, buy one ready made. Here is one source:

This will give you any service/application that is supported on LMS through mysqueezebox.com. If you have to go through your own dealer then they may suggest a Fusion Research Ovation (OMS) box which is basically the same as a Vortexbox.
