Thanks, kdf. For future "stability tests" I will stick with a local
playlist to eliminate that variable. I can see how I can't expect radio
stations to play forever, uninterrupted. However, it would be just
brilliant if the Sbox/slimserver could reestablish connectivity when it's
available again, or fall back to the main menu/screen saver, or some other
reasonable action...

yes it would. it does seem to go into a tight loop when it can't connect. must
be some kind of tantrum or something :)
