I've been having some problems lately with the server simply stopping in the middle of a song. I have to go to my computer and restart the server, hit play, and then the music continues. This has happened about 5 times today. Music may play for an hour or more between incidents. Yesterday, the mac address on my SB3 became corrupt and had to be reset to the correct address. I don't know if these problems are related or not.

What OS? What SlimServer version?

If it's Windows, anything in the Windows Event Viewer?

Slimserver 6.5. Windows XP. I haven't checked the Windows Event Viewer. I'm afraid I don't even know where that is.

Start - Programs - Administrative Tools - Event Viewer.

I move Adminstrative Tools around from default, so I may be mistaken. It could be in Start - Programs - Accessories - System Tools by default.

You ought to also be able to invoke it from a command prompt or Start - Run but I don't know what the command is.

Control Panel - Admin Tools - Event Viewer - Application

You'll see a long list events look for a recent one that looks relevant and double click to see the details.

look for red Xs in the Event Log.

Maybe your virus scanner is killing MySQL. That appears to be a prevalent problem with 6.5+

(So, you decided not to back off to 6.3.1?)

Actually, I installed 6.3.1 last night. So far, so good.
