And as a follow-up, the squeeze resumed playing audio output again about 30
minutes later, but the two players were out of sync by several seconds at
that point.

The sync bugs are not fixed in this build.

I just tried it out, one squeeze and one slim. Played very well for the
first 4-5 tracks, then on the 6th track the following events happened.

1. SliMP3 started playing the 6th track.

2. No audio output from the Squeeze.

3. Check display on the squeeze, shows the countdown timer for the track
being played, but it is jumping every couple of seconds and there is no
audio out from it.

If this is considered the final load that fixed the problems it is a little
disheartening as I got it to break in under an hour.

Hi All,

I've posted updated nightly pre-release versions of SlimServer here:

http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads/nightly/latest

that have several additional fixes for synchronization. If you were
having problems with previous versions, please try this out and let us
know how it goes.

I hope to release an official version of the software this week, so if
you have a chance to test this out and let us know if you have any new
problems (with sync or anything else), that would be great!

Thanks,

dean

Jason,

Thanks for trying out the pre-release build. Feedback like this is
what makes it better.

Some questions for you:

What kind of files were you playing?

After the Squeezebox started up again, did it get back in sync at the
end of that song? Did it stay in sync after that? If so, for how
long?

Jason,

One more question: Have you updated the firmware on your Squeezebox
since you received it?

If not, start both the Squeezebox and the SlimServer and then press and
hold the BRIGHTNESS button on the remote for 5 seconds.

This will start a firmware update.

Let me know if that improves the sync performance.
