Hi!

I'm fairly new to Slimserver and Squeezebox, and wonder if it is the defaullt that Slimseriver should start scanning my music files every time I restart the computer. Not sure I experienced this until I upgraded to 6.5. If this is the default, is there any way of deactivating this...?? I would rather like to decide myself on when to rescan.

No, SlimServer should not be doing this. What's your operating system?

Does it also empty out your library when it starts one of these scans? That is, when you see this happening and then try to browse albums or artists do you see blank or partial pages?

Hi JJZolx!

Thanks for the reply! Not sure if it is causing the things you mention since I usually just wait until it is ready. But will check next time. I run:

slimserver 6.5.0 - 9916 - Windows XP - EN - cp1252
Perl Version: 5.8.7 MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
MySQL Version: 5.0.22-community-nt

and is using WinXP

Hi!

I restarted my computer again and as us usal lately Slimserver immediately started scanning. Tried to look at some of the artists and albums, but the ones I did look at seemed OK from the start, so doesn't seem the library is first emptied out. Grateful for any help in stopping/controling this behaviour.

Are you using Itunes or MusicMagic (MusicIP) to manage your music library ?

If so, try setting the reload interval to 0.

Thanks for the tip Siduhe!

I do use both of these, not necessary to manage my library, but in parallel... I did change the reload settings as you suggested and have then restarted twice without Slimserver starting to scan! Looks very promising so far!! Thanks again!!!!
