How do I set up Slimserver/Squeezebox to scan and display onl certain file types i.e. mp3, wav. I want only to play wav files through squeezebox but because I have multiple formats for the same songs (mp3, AAC and wav), each song shows 3 times in Squeezebox.

Thanks in advance.

If you want certain file types to not exist in slimserver, open up
types.conf (located where you installed slimserver) and remove those
types. They will then not be scanned, or playable.

Simplest is to move all your wav files into one folder and use that
as the music folder.
