View Full Version : Squeezebox Hourly Dropout problem

Every hour my squeezebox will briefly cut out while playing music. The time of the hour corresponds to that of the last reboot. (ie. If I rebooted at 15 past the hour then every hour at 15 past it will drop out.) While watching task manager at the appointed time I have discovered that it seems to be SLIM.EXE itself that is causing the problem. What is it doing and how do I stop it? The only thing I can think of is it is checking for a newer version but I have that feature turned off in the server setup. Any ideas?

Thanks,
John
