I can't seem to keep the connection between the squeezebox and slimserver up and running...it crashes about every ten minutes and requires restarting the server to boot up again

using last nights 6.5...mac osX...nokia 770

should I forget the nokia for now and go back to a more stable version?

i have played around with this for a while, I am out for the next few hours running errands. Any suggestions would be welcome

I am going to expose myself as far too computer challenged to have a beta...but I love the 770 interface!

What would I be looking for?

Look in your under your user folder for Library/Logs/slimserver.log, or
possibly /Library/Logs/slimserver.log

The last bit of that file should give a hint as to what isn't working.

Or you can try running manually from Terminal:
/Library/PreferencePanes/SlimServer.prefPane/Contents/server/
slimserver.pl and see what happens then

-kdf

6.5b1 06/11 Nightly fails to play Flac/WMA files.

The first couple lines from the log read

DBI connect('hostname=127.0.0.1;port=9092','',...) failed: Can't connect to MySQL server on '127.0.0.1' (10061) at /PerlApp/Slim/Utils/MySQLHelper.pm line 324
Use of uninitialized value in hash element at /PerlApp/Slim/Networking/Select.pm line 147

I've seen this error in the log in previous releases, even after I punched holes in my Firewall for ports 9092 and 10061. With this error the server started and Flac files played fine, except that I could not fast-forward or rewind to the next song or within a flac file. I could fast forward to the next song when playing the albums that are made up of WMA files. The last line about the uninitialized value in line 147 keept repeating in the log.

With today's nightly besides the above errors I get the following in the log after trying to play a flac or wma files.

ERROR: openSong: [file:///D:/Digital%20Music/Playlists/remotetest.m3u] Unrecognized type m3u!

ERROR: openSong: [file:///D:/Digital%20Music/Latin/F%E9lix%20Baloy%20y%20su%20Cuban%20Son%20All%20Sta rs/Un%20Poquito%20De%20F%E9/F%E9lix%20Baloy%20y%20su%20Cuban%20Son%20All%20Sta rs%20-%20Un%20Poquito%20De%20F%E9.m3u] Unrecognized type ssp!

Malformed UTF-8 character (unexpected end of string) at /PerlApp/Slim/Music/TitleFormatter.pm line 474.

I tried clearing and rescanning, but it does not solve the problem. I can not play Flac or WMA files.

The SqueezeBox displays the following: Playing Shuffled From Name-Of-Song for a few seconds then displays the following message: Problem can't open file for remotest. Them the Slimserver restarts.

I'm afraid that the error might be related to characters that are either in the name of the flac/wma files or in the tags of the name of the songs. There are accents and letter that are not in english language.

Not Complaning about the nightly, just reporting what I'm experiencing.

Still having the same problems I mentioned before with the 6.5b1 06/11 and 06/12 nightly builds. Before I waste more of my time, can I expects improvements in my area of failure in tonight's build... or should I wait?
