The FAQ at
http://wiki.slimdevices.com/tiki-view_faq.php?faqId=8#q68
could do with a small update - or the Slimserver software could do with a
small change.

Reason:
If you have password protected your DABBar connection then the credentials
(just a password) have to be passed using basic authentication to DABBar.
The typical syntax for this is:
http://password (AT) 192 (DOT) 168.1.11:8080/45008.mp2
Where you replace "password" with the password that you have set on DABBar
streaming access.

however, SlimServer 6.0 requires both the username and password to be
passed.
DABBar ignores the user name so .. the following syntax works
http://anyone:password (AT) 192 (DOT) 168.1.11:8080/45008.mp2
Where you replace "password" with the password that you have set on DABBar
streaming access.


(I could see that I could update the Wiki but could not see a way to update
the FAQ)
