Apologies if this is old news, but it might save someone some time...

For me at least, Slimserver 6.2.2 official release will not work with AlienBBC below rel 1.01

I installed the official release of 6.2.2 yesterday. AlienBBC 0.99 was already installed and was working fine with a 6.2.2 nightly (from early April, f.w 37 I think). Once the official release of 6.2.2 was installed and f/w upgraded to 48, AlienBBC crashed Slimserver.

Installed AlienBBC 1.01 and all works fine again. As an added bonus there's now support for NPR stations and the Network Test plugin seems to show higher wireless streaming (upto 1500kpbs at 100%, previously I could only get to 500 or 1000kpbs before seeing drops to ~70 or 80%), although this was only a short test.

Note that the Alien upgrade is simple, didn't have to touch mplayer or any codecs, just unzipped the AlienBBC1.01 folder into the plugins directory.

Cheers to all & thanks to SlimDevices for the improvements & upgrades.
