Hi,

I find myself playing the same albums/tracks most of the time and
would like to just tell slimserver to pick me a random list. I know
moodlogic does this but you have to pay to activate tracks with
moodlogic and there are still lots of tracks that aren't "moodlogic
aware".

I would like to be able to tell slimserver to either give me x random
tracks or create a playlist that lasts x minutes.

this would be cool

cheers

Steve

Steve - MusicMagicMixer has a feature like this - it integrates with SlimServer.

But how well does the free version work?

Hi,

Getting really frustrated now. Don't know what to do...

I've got two SB1s - one in the lounge hooked up to hifi etc. the
second in the bedroom connected to a pair of powered "computer"
speakers, acting as a bedside table radio-alarm clock.

The set-up in the bedroom is producing a really annoying hum -
especially as the speakers are 6 inches from my ear!!

I have tried:
- alternate speakers
- alternate squeezebox
- plugging in to headphone jack / phono sockets
- pluggng squeezebox in to separate mains spurs/rings (a downstairs
one and the cooker one in the kitchen)
- a ground loop isolator
- an alternate power supply (from a Ipaq, same rating, 5v 2A as the
supplied one)

None of the above made any discernable difference.

I finally tried a third power supply (this time from an Iomega
external zip drive) which was only rated 5v 1A. This worked! But only
for 3 months... this weekend the SB started rebooting a lot (esp when
selecting max brightness), then the display started flickering, then
it simply would boot at all. Swapped back for the other power supply -
works fine, but the hum is back.

Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! :-(

I assume that the SB draws more than an amp and so has knackered the p/s.

What do I do now? I love the SB, and it makes a great bedside alarm
clock, but I just can't sleep with the hum.

The hum isn't affected by the volume on the speakers, gets a lot worse
if only one channel is connected (using the phonos)?!? and is really
quite audible - it can be heard the other side of the room, not just
when I'm lying next to it.

Hmmm. (no pun intended ;-)

What do I do now??

Thanks for any suggestions - sorry for the long windedness.

cheers
Rob
