Sounds reasonable, I'm still seeing cutouts with firmware 25, albeit
with quicker recovery in between each (at first impressions, anyway).

I'll try out firmware 24 soon.

Sean,
Just tried the 6/17 nightly but have to report that the firmware upgrade
stuck at about 50% on the progress bar and then the SB lost contact with the
server. Nothing would induce it to try again although it did ask a couple
more time for me top press the brightnes key but would not respond to it.

I have kept a handy copy of the squeezebox.version file with the forced
return to 23 and copied this over the new one which had been included with
6/17 to enable me to get back control of the SB.
