View Full Version : SlimServer: The page cannot be displayed (top right handframe)

I've just started up my SlimServer and received a "The page cannot be
displayed" error instead of the top right hand frame.
This has happened a fair few times, sometimes on start-up and sometimes when
I've just been navigating through the menus (generally when I'm playing with
playlists). It does not seem to be caused by any one action that i can
determine.
This time it happened after my SB had lost connection with SlimServer and I
was forced to restart the SlimServer and Slim Service to regain
connectivity. I was listening to a Birthday Party track at the time, using
the remote to control the Squeezebox. One of the Birthday party tracks
appeared multiple times in the current playlist when the SlimServer was
started (i've not noticed this happening before when the frame has
disappeared before though).
Refreshing the frame does not retrieve the page, nor does navigating around
the menu system. I can only get the frame back by clearing the playlist.

I've posted a screenshot here if it helps make it any clearer:

The status frame does have a build in refresh, default is 30s. If you shut down
the server at the time it tries to reload, that frame is lost because there is
no server. When the server restarts, you wont get the page back, beucase that
frame has already been defaulted explorer's placeholder, which it uses when no
response if found. In this case, reloading the entire page should solve the
problem.

As for happening while navigating, that would seem to be a different cause; one
that I've no experience with, I'm afraid.
