hi there,

I bought my SB2 last night and I'm totally enthousiastic!

I'm trying to use squeezenetwork, but I cannot find how I subscribe/install this feature. I'm confused here...

I downloaded from http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads/nightly/latest/6.1/
the file is SlimServer_v2005-06-03.ZIP
I unzipped and launched the exe. It appears not to be an installer.
I browsed throug hthe settings but couldn't fin any 'squeezenetwork' notice. Have I got the right downlaod? In 'About' it says 6.0.6 ?

hope to hear from you soon,
great product


thx in advance

You should have a "connect so SQN" menu on your player. Go there and
you'll be connected. Once you want to get back to your own server, select
the "Sign off" menu.

Hi Michael

can't find it... can you be more specific?

So i installed the regular server version, and overwrote it with the latest available nightly built.

Still not clear how to subscribe/connect to SQN :(

thx in advance!

On which operating system are you trying to install SlimServer 6.1? If it's Windows, you'll likely want the .exe file on that same page. That's the Windows installer and can install the server as a service. If you already have an older version of SlimServer then it will (safely) install over top of the old installation.

Once you've installed 6.1 the Squeezebox will probably prompt you to download and install the latest firmware. Do this. After the firmware upgrade SqueezeNetwork should be available as a selection on the Squeezebox's first menu.

thx JJZolx!
you already got me to server 6.1

I see a blank 8th entry on the main player menu(bug?) but it does take me to SQN apparently. nice.

Now however, I'm stuck in the firmware upgrade. Can't get it to upgrade. I found a post on this, but that doesn't do it for me

Had a good search on the forums, I did a full UNinstall, got latest night built, reinstalled and now it seems to work.
