Can anyone duplicate or confirm this issue for me. I have a Squeeze Box 2 and Slimserver loaded on a high powered PC with plenty of memory. Tried it on 2 PC's actually running Windows XP. No strange software running in background.

All Change buttons will freeze after I try to enter perhaps more than 10 podcasts and/or a combination of RSS feeds.

Others have complained about this in the forum.

Would love someone to perhaps add about 15 podcasts and try about 5 RSS feeds and see if they can keep adding them or if CHANGE button freezes on them.


I have reported this to slimdevices and they are looking into this to see if it is affecting others.

Thank you.

Here is a list of Pod Casts to try to add to what you have so you need not look for them.

You can of course delete these when done.


Thanks so much for helping me solve or see if others can duplicate this issue.

I switched to Mozilla Firefox as the browser to use with Slimserver and it no longer freezes.

Works perfectly.

I downloaded Firefox, installe dit and ran it with the SLimServer link and no more freezes. Something with Internet Explorer verions and perhaps certain OS', patches and so on obviously have a conflict at times with Slimserver and adding more podcasts or RSS feeds.

Hope this helps people.
I have alerted the Slim Device technical support folks.

Sincerely
Peter

I have the same problem as the original post. Unfortunately the answer above "running mozilla with the slimserver link" means nothing to me. Could you give some idiot-friendly (i.e., me) instructions?
