View Full Version : Internet Radio Only

2006-03-22, 09:27
Slimserver installed on a Linkstation MIPS to Roku M500. Plays Internet Radio fine. Sees and allows navigation to any file of any format I've got in my music library but won't actually play anything. Wondering if this is permissions or what. Would like to get Slimserver fully operational.

Roku officially only supports a rather dated version of slimserver. It could well be that the version you're using does not work with the roku.
Check the roku webpage and search this forum for specific information.

The M500 will work with Slimserver 6.2.x - there are plenty of Roku users using slimserver. If you are sure slimserver is working ok (i.e. it works with SoftSqueeze) and the problem is related to the M500 you will get better support from Roku users on the Roku site.

As a suggestion try forcing playback using MP3 (use bit rate limiting) and not WAV or AIF.

sorry, use of Roku products with slimserver is not supported here. Nor,
oddly, is it supported on the Roku forums. you are on your own.
