I just upgraded a fully functional SB3 with SS6.2.1 to the new version. After the firmware got upgraded to version 29, everything turns mad at me. I can connect to my server but I do not get any sound playing music, just see the titel. When connecting to Squeeznetwork, the music starts playing for 3 seconds, the SB3 reboots itself. What is going on here. This is a complete disaster.

When you say "the new version" do you mean the 6.2.2 branch or the 6.5branch?

I'd say you have two options:
1) Go back to your old, good level. Either of the two above levels are
still beta levels and not yet released. One of the caveats of going to them
is that you may hit bugs. 6.2.2 is supposed to be stabled than 6.5, but
both are still unreleased.

2) Open a bug report, and help the developers debug your issue.

Which one should you do? If you had a reason to upgrade (that is, there is
a feature you need which is not in 6.2.1 but is in the later version), then
#2 may be your best course. Otherwise, it just comes down to how much time
and effort you wish to spend.

You realize you're running pre-release software, right? If you want to try the bleeding edge, be prepared for some instability. For help with the nightly builds, please post in the "Beta" forum - we will need data from you such as which platform you're running, what kind of wireless network you have, and so on. Then we can get the bugs fixed for you!

If you don't want to troubleshoot that's fine too, just roll back to official release and you should be fine.

I'm using a 6.2.2 nightly with no problem. But you still haven't said which
new version you tried, so I'm not sure if that's applicable to you or not.
And in any case, I'm running on Windows XP and on a nightly from a few weeks
back, so it wouldn't necessarily apply to your case.

Nobody said these versions are upgrades. They are beta software releases.
Use at your own risk.

:) Hi - well I did what Slim Tech Support told me.. ugrade to 6.2.2 in order to fix problems with SqueezeNetwork. But, point well taken, I will move this to the Beta forum and try to be helpful.

Ah - rock and a hard place then. :)

The bugs you encountered are related to some major changes to the wireless driver which, ironically, are intended to fix a lot of bugs. But we only just checked them in and there are a bunch of new, known issues to resolve with a variety of different routers before we ship it.

If you'd like, keep an eye on the Beta forum for an idea of when it will be ready for wider testing prior to release. Some people are having good results already with firmware 29, but obviously it's not ready.

And don't forget to do a factory reset (unplug SB, hold the + button, plug
SB). It fixed the issues I had with fw 29.
