View Full Version : losing connection to server--a lot with 6.0.0

I just got my SB2 last night, and am generally very happy with it.
One problem though - when I try to connect to the RadioIO Classical
stream by using the remote, the server crashes.
I can connect to RadioIO Acoustic - no problem. But the Classical stream
crashes the server every time.

I'm running 6.0.0 on Windows XP, with MySQL (see earlier posts).
I don't have much in the way of debugging info - the Windows service
simply exits, with no entry in the system event log.
I turned on the d_remotestream debugging flag, and after crashing it
again, the log entry looked normal, ending in a message about
successfully opening the stream.
Is there another debugging flag that might yield more info on this?
Is anyone else having the same problem?

Thanks.

try running from a command prompt:
"c:\program files\slimserver\server\slim.exe"

sometimes a crash that you will see there isn't always written to the event
viewer or the logfile.
