Dean,

the two players are in different rooms, so there
should not be any problems with IR transmissions going
to the wrong player. The synch problem (attempts not
working) is only when trying to synch a slimp3 to a
squeezebox, not vice-versa. Another synch bug I've
encountered is that, even though repeat is turned off
on both players, the playlist repeats regardless of
which player is synching to which.

Happy (almost) New Year,
Julius

Julius,

Can you give me an exact step-by-step description of what you are doing
and exactly the behavior you are seeing?
