View Full Version : Not sure is this is where I do functionality request

I just have a couple wishes for upcoming versions of SlimServer.

1) The ability to remotely shut down the computer/server where my music
is being streamed from. Saves me running down to the basement to when I
done listening to music.

1) The ability to browse different drives. Since my music files are
split between seven drives, drive 1 is A - B, drive 2 is C - D, etc. As
far as I can tell now. I have to log into the server and change the
location, drive 1, or 2, etc, of where my music files are stored.

Thank you for any suggestions.

1. While I don't know the constraints of your setup, I know that I (and
most people running slimserver) prefer to keep the machine on all the time
so that we can listen to music whenever we'd like (and for many of us that
server does a lot of other duties, as well).

2. Take a look at this recent thread which discusses this:

Just leave the monitor off all the time if it's just a server. The monitor
is the majority of the electric use. You can set it to spin the drives down
too, although I don't really recommend that. It will save power.
