Hello,

When I choose ShoutCast on the Squeezebox it attempts to connect but it
gives an error message that the connection to the slim server was lost about
10 seconds later. Has anyone else seen this problem or know how to fix it?

I'm running Windows XP Pro, and I downloaded and installed the nightly build
from June 16th (5.1.6). The Squeezebox is working OK other than that...

Thanks,

Steve

What I get is a message saying shoutcast web site is unavailable, then pressing
right after that will crash teh server:
Can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference at
D:/slim/server/Plugins/ShoutcastBrowser.pm line 699.

Steven,

After you see this error, does the Squeezebox reconnect? Can you then
browse and play Shoutcast stations?

I saw these same symptoms a few days ago when my ADSL link was down.
Had to force a restart on the SB to get it to work again. Didn't
have to restart the server though, and everything works fine when
the internect connection is present.

I suspect its my work firewall. I used to be able to get through for simply
http calls, but they recently went stupid and crippled us with an active virus
scannign proxy and things have gone pear-shaped ever since.evey file transfer,
even local now sees a 99% cpu spike for a few seconds. Downloads will actually
lock up the UI for a few seconds when its saving to disk. Definately NOT
slimserver causing the 99% this time :)
