View Full Version : [suqeezebox] + 5.1 + XPpro=CRASH

2004-02-06, 12:40
Using XPpro, IE6.something and a squuezebox
I have tried the nightly builds now two times. Each time I add/remove
programs slimserver, reboot and install new build. Install works. Run the
server and I can load a page or two then server dies. Server even dies when
I run no browser client.

Anyone having simular issues? Or am I just missing something...

Hi Pat,

THe AAC files are being streamed as uncompressed audio, which may be a
problem if he's using wireless and the signal strength isn't strong
enough. But it sounds like he's using a wired connection, right?

It's possible that there's a CPU problem on the server side (check the Task
Manager) or even a bad cable that's causing lots of packet loss.
