View Full Version : A silly question perhaps but why do I seem to have to have iTunes playing to hear any

Installed SlimServer (using home plug networking) but I dont seem to be abel to actually hear anything unless iTunes in running on the host machine.

Am I doing something silly or basically wrong? Or is there a setting I need to look at.

Running on a MAC OS X machine.

Thanks in advance

If you want to listen to some music using slimserver, you'll need a
client: a Squeezebox or some software player like iTunes or SoftSqueeze.
Slimserver itself won't play anything.

Thanks for the response.

I have a Squezebox - but had forgottne about the effect of hiding the computer in the firewall settings.

All OK now - thanks for your post
