The title pretty much says it all. I've got that little icon that tells me I can upgrade to Service Pack3. I'm running a Transporter (just upgraded after only 1 week with SqueezeBox Classic - I'm hooked) on XP Pro. Any bugs in Service Pack 3 that affect the Transporter and/or SqueezeCenter?

Thanks.

I've upgraded all of my XP machines to SP3 and have not seen any issues. A couple of weeks ago I ran a daily build of SC7.1 prior to the official release to validate a bug fix. I ran it on my XP SP3 machine and had no problems.

I think you should be OK.

I can't remember seeing any problems with SP3 when it was released and that was a while back, so if there was anything it would have been sorted my now.

It might cause you network problems if you use dhcp and depending on Your Router:

Some DHCP Options are not recognized on a Windows XP SP3-based client computer when the DHCP server offer includes option 43

That page of course includes a download that fixes the DHCP problem.
