Jack,

Thanks for the response.

1. I'll hook up direct and see what happens.

2. I'm running W2000 so not an XP issue. Now I
understand, the box is trying to contact
www.slimdevices.com. As it's not connected to the
internet it's never going to get there. I'll see if I
can turn this off on the server. Would this cause the
Squeezebox to reboot?

Any ideas on the best debug flags to set? I can't find
any documentation anywhere on these flags. If anyone
can point me in the right direction I'd be grateful.

Thanks


Mick

no, it's a red herring. Server Settings > Behavior > Software Updates.
