Is the firmware WMA support for Squeezebox 2 only, or will it also work
with SB1?

Does this mean I can stream WMA from my Linux server?

Yes - provided it is lossy WMA, and not lossless WMA.

Is WMA Lossless still transcoded on the server? And if so, how does SlimServer know whether it's lossless or lossy?

It is.

The WMA metadata has a flag denoting lossless.

With the support of Unicode. Does that mean it support Chinese display?
DO I still need to download the 3 fonts as indicated from previous
thread before?

The reason I asked is beause I use Infrant NAS which natively support
slimserver, but I cannot install the fonts directly on to NAS.

Yes it does. And you only need to download 1 of the 3 fonts.

Hi
I was wondering if anyone has had any of the following problems with the releases from the 18th til todays nightly(19th) including the 6.2b2 released today.

When using playlist rescan from server settings music stops on all players and what ever is queued up to play on each player is gone from the now playing. attached is what d_scan look like. I swear the files exist and everthing around them is 777.

This may have to do with #1. In the past there were a bunch of .m3u files in the PL dir with MAC's and IP's of the players prepended to them to store current PL's.? I just did I little overhaul and moved the PL dir. I didn't move the m3u's cause it was a totally differnt vol/path ect.. Now I don't see those types of m3u's being created in there and it kind of makes me think it has to do with problem #1. User had full rights to PL dir.


When doing a browser refresh the player always reverts back to a perticular player. If I refresh while I'm adding somes to player B it will change to player A. I'm 98% sure this was not the behavior a few nightlys back. Could be going crazy but just wondering.

OK last one. If you go to the alarm setting on the SB via remote all 5 pages are the same(Each page is the "press right to turn off"). This only occurs when the alarm is armed and not when it is in the off setting.
It still shows as 5 menu options and each option will takle you to the proper setting ie. alarm time, playlist ect.. its just that all 5 of the menu choices say "press right to turn off" instead of thier proper title.

Thanks

Thanks
