Hello, I'm hoping someone might help me with my sluggish response problem. The server is using XP 2005 Media Edition, I have about 60Gb of Music.

The main problem is the player, the gaps between pressing the remote and it showing on the display make it incredibly slow and unresponsive.

I've pasted the performance stats below.
Thanking anyone that can help!

What are the specs of the server? Any other large applications on it? Which version of SlimServer?

This is on the definite lower end for specs with Windows XP, particularly RAM given what else you're running. This would probably run much better on a minimal Linux OS like DSL but that might not be feasible if you're running Media Edition for a reason.

XP won't run very well all on its own with just 256 MB.

It sounds like the machine is having too much asked of it. I am running SlimServer on a PII (yes, Pentium 2) with 128MB RAM and Windows 2000 with no problems at all (admittedly it is a high-end IBM server). Try removing or disabling any unnecessary stuff and it should run SS fine although Windows XP might be a higher overhead!
