Just upgraded to 5.1.1, primarily to see if this problem is fixed.... It doesn't happen all the time, but has been doing a fair amount recently. Between each track, the SqueezeBox loses contact with the server. After 10 seconds to a minute, the display comes alive again and the next track starts playing.

Any clues?

PS, running on Gentoo Linux.

are you audio files stored locally? do the hard drives have any spin-down power
saving craziness going on?

Also, try running /usr/local/slimserver/slimserver.pl --d_source and see what
that says between tracks. The debug messages are timestamped so that will help
find the exact events causing the delay.
