I recently upgraded to the latest slimserver 6.5 software and now none of my slimp3 players will play anymore. The display shows they are playing, but all I can hear on the speakers is some clicking noises and that is it. I am not sure if anyone has experienced this, my Squeezebox 3 is still playing no problems, but neither of my slimp3s will play.

Not sure if this is the same problem...

Probably worth trying a 6.5.1 nightly...

Tried downloading the 6.5.1 version, and I could not even get software work to at all, and once I did get it working same results, just clicking noise.

Very strange, I don't have much advice to give you. One bit of info: I
use two SliMP3's daily (along with other devices) and haven't had a lick of
problems with 6.5 and the subsequent 6.5.1 builds. There is something
unique to your situation and I would advise that you contact SD support
because there simply aren't going to be a lot of people with SliMP3 devices
out there -- at least compared to those with the newer devices.

I had no problems using 2 slimp3s with both the 6.5 release and the 6.5.1 nightlies.

My slimp3 plays fine with SS 6.5.0
What file types do you use? Can you play mp3 files?

All I have on my PC are mp3s. I thought maybe it was a issue with the one player, but when the second slimp3 did not work, that told me that there is something wrong with 6.5 software, since I know they worked before I installed the latest software. I tried loading the 6.5.1 and I was having a miserable time trying to get that to work, but once I did it did the same thing on both of the players.
