View Full Version : Slimserver 5.4 loses connection

Hi,

Since running slimserver 5.4 I keep getting a lot of lost connections to
my squeezebox, the display just goes dead about once a day! I'm running
slimserver as a service on XP SP2, the squeezebox is wired to my router
and I'm using the iTunes settings. When the squeezebox dies restarting
the service recovers the link.


I'm interested in two things:

a) Anyone else had this problem with 5.4 and if so did you get
round it?
b) Is there a handy utility that can detect the lost connection
and automatically restart the service?

Thanks.

Does this problem encounter when you do something special? How much
memory, what cpu, what other tasks on the machine? Have you been using the
ShoutCast plugin (or others)?

Does it really die or is it just stuck for a while?
