View Full Version : Odd problem with Slimp3 on a Squeezebox dominant network

I only use my music system a couple of times per week, so the last when
it was happening a couple of weeks ago I remember just unplugging the
Slimp3 and as I remember the Slimp3 went through its normal startup
sequence and then all was well.

However, I will try to duplicate again and report the new findings.
The frustrating thing is that it doesn't happen all the time...
intermittent failures are so hard to duplicate.

I just noticed I forgot to mention, sometimes the -- just the Slimp3
-- stops, not the whole network, sometimes the -- Slimp3 and the
Squeezeboxes stop -- .

Many thanks,
