View Full Version : Problems with Windows service

I'm wondering if _anyone_ on this list is seeng the sort of behavior that I described in my earlier post (see below). I didn't get much response to my original message, so maybe I'm alone here. I have submitted this problem to Slim Devices support, but haven't had any resolution yet. It's been two weeks and I'm in the position of having to restart the slim server on a daily basis. Needless to say this is sub-optimal.

To review, I upgraded to 5.2 on my Windows XP box and things seemed fine. But after a while I noticed that the Squeezebox would lose connection to the server (symptom: the Squeezebox display is blank). I'd check the server and it would look just fine, running and not doing anything weird. Restart the server and everything's OK again, for a while.

If nobody else is seeing this, then I have to assume it has something to do with my setup here. But I don't think that I changed anything to cause this to start happening.

Windows XP Pro SP1 on a 1.2 Ghz Celeron with 256 Mbytes of RAM
Linksys wireless network

Thoughts anyone?

- Jeff

Hi Jeff,

We've had a couple of reports of this, but have been unable to
reproduce the problem here, but if it's happening regularly for you,
maybe you can help us figure out what's going on. I wonder if you can
reproduce the problem by running the server from the command line
instead of as a service. If so, it should be easier to track down...
