View Full Version : SlimServer 6.0b1 Problems

Finally took the plunge and upgraded to SlimServer 6.0 b1, here are
some problems I've noticed right off.
1.) When playing a Live365 stream "Now Playing" no longer shows track
title/author/album info. It just shows the stream name.

2.) Response time between remote button clicks is horrible (2-3) seconds.

3.) SB display horizontal scrolling is no longer smooth but jerks.

Server Specs:
Dual P3 1GHz
512 Meg Hdwe Interleaved Ram
3 9.1 GB SCSI HD
Windows XP Pro SP2 with current updates. Only Screen Saver active on
server is Blank Screen. Only other processes not related to Windows
are SSH service and iTunes service.

Thanks

This has been fixed today, should be in tomorrow's nightly.

Can't confirm this (running on a Via C3/1000). How many songs do you have?
What screensaver are you running? Those OpenGL 3D savers use quite some
cpu...

What's the CPU and memory load on that machine?

Neil - do these albums happen to have accented characters in the title or artist name?

What do you mean by "disappeared" ?

A screen shot would be fantastic if you can.

Please file a bug at http://bugs.slimdevices.com about this.

Thanks.

James - what OS / Version are you running on?

Also, can you send the output of perl -V ?

Thanks.
