View Full Version : Hardware issue?

My SlimP3/Slimserver would crash on a consisten basis when ever I tried
to search , or play "everything". Soon after, my computer running the
slimserver decided it was time for a re-formatting and re-install. When
I did that, I had iTunes use the "keep my Librabry Organized" feature.
This seems to re-write some of the MP3 tags. I also consolidated the
files into one place. This seemed to fix my problems with the slimserver
crashing.

The power is not going off but what I think is happening is that the
player is losing contact with the server and the displays blank when
this happens - is this Windows ? What sort of CPU speed/RAM/Library
size ?

Have suffered this for a while - particularly as I have a large music
library - adding more RAM can help and making sure as much processor
power as poss is available - hitting 'search for a song' on my setup
will kill all the clients (blank displays) for 14 minutes ! There is a
new database backend being worked on that I am hopeful may resolve all
these issues..
