PDA

View Full Version : Cannot change device with handheld skin

Hello,
I have one squeezebox and one softsqueeze connected to my slimserver.

Using the "handheld" skin, a combo box appears on the top of the page so I can select which device I want to control.
Unfortunately, I cannot change it because each time I select the other device, it goes back to the already selected device.

It does not work on my PDA, neither on my PC with Opera or with IE6.
It works if I use the default skin so I guess the problem comes from the skin.

What server version are you using?

I have a slightly more recent copy (SlimServer Version: 6.3.0 - 8154 -
Linux - DE - iso-8859-1) which does contain some fixes in the web server
part. But I'm not sure they make the difference. Would you mind giving an
update a try? It's so simple with SlimCD's integrated update script ;-).

Now I have "Version du SlimServer : 6.3.1 - 8278 - Debian - FR - iso-8859-1" but it is not working better...

I'm a bit afraid of what will happen when I will restart my slimserver box because the version of slimserver will "downgrade" but my squeezebox has been updated with the last firmware....

No, if there's a mismatch the SB will prompt you to press the brightness button for a firmware update.

Hmm... I shall do some work on the Handheld skin today. I'll have a look
at this issue, too. IMHO the now used cookie mechanism is alright for
skins using frames. But in the case of Hanhdeld just passing the player in
the URL along seems to be simpler and more reliable.

That said: do you by chance have cookies disabled?

You're on SlimCD? Is it installed to disk or are you running it from CD?
You can have your configuration backuped and restored automatically if you
set /opt/.backup_device (check for the name - I am at work and not sure
about it). SlimServer is then backupped as well (which sometimes is a pain
when you update the SlimCD image - but that's another story :-))

I have send an email to Slimdevices support and it seems they are on this issue.

No, Cookies are enabled

It's running from an USB pendrive. I will check this and try to backup everything. Thank you

Do you know whether there is a bug opened on bugs.slimdevices.com? I
didn't find anything.

One more thing: what personal firewall and antivirus products are you
using? Does any of them offer "privacy filter" or similar?

actually, setting the cookie in the switchPlayer script works really
well as it causes the page to load with the player in the cookie, even
when the url doesn't contain the player param (as is the case for
handheld skin home page)

I'm only working with 6.5 at the moment, but trying this line in
Handheld/html/common.js, as part of switchPlayer():

setCookie( 'SlimServer-player',
player_List.options[player_List.selectedIndex].value );

Bug 3736 is related to the drop-down list. I hope it will be fixed in slimserver 6.5

That bug has status "resolved". Otherwise we'd be rather late to fix it
for the 6.5 release :-).
