View Full Version : library rescan from remote not working?

2007-02-20, 15:48
i just got back home and wanted to listen to some newly ripped music which my ripper directly puts in my music library.

because i am too lazy to fire up my pc to access slimserver's UI to refresh, i thought i could do this through the squeezebox.

so i went: home -> plugins -> rescan music library -> press PLAY to rescan now -> PLAY

nothing at all seemed to happen. but i figured this could take a while. so i wait ~10 mins. the new tracks dont show up.

i try again. still nothing.

i boot my PC and open the web UI. i try it again through the remote, hoping to see the usual "slimserver is rescanning..." message. nothing obstinately continues to happen.

in the end, i am only able to rescan by doing it through the web UI, not through the remote.

my settings:
SlimServer Version: 6.5.1 - 11206 - Windows Server 2003 - EN - cp1252
Server IP address:
Perl Version: 5.8.8 MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
MySQL Version: 5.0.22-community-nt

rescan for new and changed music

plugin "rescan music library" is active

what am i doing wrong?

thanks for your thoughts,

It's a known issue, and was fixed after the 6.5.1 release:


If you wish, you can download a pre-6.5.2 nightly build:
