Hi,

I use the SN alarm every morning. I've set the volume to 40 using the SN website. This works fine. In the evening, when I use the SB for regular listening, the volume comes on at the max (99)... even though 99 isn't even an option when using SN. Anyone know what's going on?

thanks,
grimholtz

In older SlimServer versions, the volume was on a scale of 40. In newer ones, it's 0-100. SN is probably using the old volume scale.

SN uses 0-100, but the website uses the same 1-11 scale as the SS web
interface.

Not sure what's wrong here, are you using the "Fade Alarms In"
setting? If so, try disabling that.

Yes, "Fade Alarms In" is enabled. I'll disable that and see if it helps. Here's a screenshot (http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/8893/snoe7.png) of SN. The volume scale is from 0-40, inclusive, so I'm not sure what everyone means by 1-11 and 0-100 :)

Hmm, oops, I guess I need to fix that. :)

What'll happen to our volumes when you change it? Will my alarms one day go from 40 to something low on the new scale, preventing me from waking up one morning? Are you able to proportionally change existing volumes from 0-40 to the new 1-11 scale so we don't miss work one morning? :)

I'll have to see if it's using a 0-40 scale or actually setting it to only 40 on a 0-100 scale.

OK. Please post again when you know what'll happen... if you can't convert the existing alarm volumes to the new levels that's OK... just let me know when it'll take effect! (please!)

I understand the problem now after disabling "Fade Alarms In". My wife and I were woken up this morning to a volume 99 alarm at 6:30 am. She yelled, "I wish you would throw that thing [squeezebox] out!" I guess I'll not be getting the 3rd unit I was planning on due to the Spring white sale.

So it seems the alarm was always going to 99 volume, but I turned the SB off before it could output at that level. That would explain why it's at 99 in the evenings. Given that SN only goes to 40, does anyone know how this maps to the scale (0-99 or 1-99) on the SB? Can I assume 40 = 99, so 20 = 49.5?

thanks,

I've changed the alarm volume scale to use 1-11. Internally, this is
converted to (vol - 1) * 10, so 1 == 0, 11 == 100, etc.

The 0-40 scale was vol * 2.5.

Sorry for the confusion. :)
