Not trivial.
However, you could replace Squeezeplay with Jivelite.

How funny, this is just the information I was looking for... weird. 8-)

So is this the done thing these days? Jivelite + background player (ie. squeezelite)?

I suspect that most have stayed with the full SqueezePlay given it is the out-of-the-Box setup.
The 2nd hand Joggler that I have acquired over the years have all come with SqueezePlay rather than JiveLite.

I think that one reason for wanting the split was where the Joggler was only being used as a controller and the user did not want the extra player from SquuezePlay being listed in LMS.

Squeezelite has had attention over the years and gained some more capabilities and I think SqueezePlay has had no significant work on the player component.
