I've just built a nice little mini-itx server to run slimserver and a few HA bits on. Is there a quick way of getting all my old player and server settings and importing them to the new box? slimserver.pref seems like a good candidate, any others?

the pref file is the bulk of what you need. You might also want to consider
copying over the contents of yoru playlists directory. Beware on this one,
however, because it will get messy if your music files are not referenced by
the same paths on the new machine. You might also want to copy over any custom
IR maps, strings or conversion files if you have created any. If you haven't
made any of those, then the pref file is all you need.
