I downloaded and installed slim server 5.1 and I don't seem to be getting any output from my Squeezebox. I'm using the digital out of the Squeezebox, and although it appears to be playing (the display updates as if it is), the external DAC sees no signal. My audio files are all in FLAC format, and things do seem to work if I connect using foobar from the local PC.

Does anyone have any ideas about what could be going wrong?

Thanks,
Ken

Did you change the "Digital Volume Control" setting? I initially
changed mine to fixed output, and then I lost the analogue audio, so I
changed it back again.

Thanks for the reply, Jason. I had not updated the firmware since first installing the unit, and after doing so things began to work. When I first installed the Squeezebox, I thought that it displayed a notice about needing a firmware update. This time however, it didn't seem to indicate anything. In any case, the problem seems to be resolved now.

Thanks very much for the assistance.
