View Full Version : Slimserver Issues

I am having lots of problems with dropped connections.
This mostly happens when I switch songs or browse. I
think it may have to do with the large library of
music I have (over 10k songs from 800 albums). Anyone
else with this many songs have issues with dropped
connection? For example, say I want to play a shuffle
from my largest Genre "Rock" it drops a connection and
then starts playing about 2-3 moniutes later.

Suggestion: I love the Browse by Artwork idea but does
anyone else find it totally useless when you have a
large library? Why is it only sortable by the name of
the album. Why not have it sortable by Genre, Artist
and other ways. I find a sort by album title the most
useless but only option available.

I am using a Dell P3 500 mhz as my music server and
running 5.1.6

because the whole framework for the browse by artwork uses the browse by album
code. artwork applies by album, so you need a proper album list. albums are
not sorted any other way than by album. To add artwork in other places, would
require entirely new info cache structures, doubling and tripling memory usage.
Thats the short answer.
