Got my sqeezebox today, wasn't expecting to see the logitech logo on the front though. Perhaps slim devices should update their images to reflect what people actually get?

Also, at the side of every input on the back was a near identical scratch, every single one. Weird.

Yeh I did wonder why the pic on the homepage was not updated myself, I will check mine for these scratches now. :)

Was the scratch on the plastic or the connector itself? Sounds like it might be markings from the test jig... on the connectors, it's normal; on the plastics, it's not.

Actually those are not scratches. They are a normal artifact of the injection molding process called "knit lines" and they the same on every unit. It happens when the plastic has to flow around a feature of the mold in order to form an aperture. When the material converges on the other side of the hole, it forms a seam.

Hmm, I received my 3rd squeezebox today and no logitech logo in than one.

The documentation sucks. Trying to find out how to do something specific with or to the SB or Slimserver is nearly impossible. One would think the info might be in the wiki, but that appears to be aimed at developers, not your average Joe Blow SB owner.

The should be a tabbed page labeled "How To" and it should link to other pages that explain, get this, how to do things...

The how to's can come from existing documentation or be contributed by owners or SD/Logitech people.
It should be indexed 100 ways and searchable. Searching these forums for such info doesn't work very well.

Yeh, I dont like the wiki either, its format or search. Doesnt ever seem to be able to answer my questions which I end up just asking on the forum.

I noticed the search function on the forum sometimes lets me down too and yes its far from intuitive. Its been the biggest battle for me with my SB, finding info. Also the forum search sometimes just says "done" lots of times, an example is search for 'free your music' no quotes and I just get a blank page?

Forum issue or Firefox?

I find using Google and adding "site:slimdevices.com" to the search words is a better way to search the forum.

Try this in the google search box
site:slimdevices.com "free your music"

Well, it starts here: http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?BeginnersGuide

There are also some random how-to pages linked from http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?SlimServer , though there is certainly scope for (a) more content and (b) possibly some more organisation and indexing.

If you have some contributions to make, I'm sure they would be welcome!

Indeed, that works much better lol. Thanks!
