Guys,

Since installing version 5.3.0 of the SlimServer software I am no longer
able to access my player or server settings from the SlimServer screen on my
computer. When I tried to go back to version 5.2.1 my Squeezeboxes would
display that a selection was playing, however no sound came through. I
believe this is because the firmware update that I performed after
installing version 5.3.0 is not compatible with the ver 5.2.1. Obviously,
this presents a problem. I have full functionality of the server/player
settings when I go back to ver 5.2.1, but no sound. With 5.3.1 I can not
access player/server settings. This is extremely frustrating. How do I
correct this problem?


Why is this happening?? Please Help!!!


System Information:

Computer with SlimServer Software: IBM Thinkpad R40
Operating System: Windows XP Pro (With Service Pack 2 [security features]
installed)
Lame is installed on the system, however when trying to correct the problem
every time I went back to version 5.2.1 under the player settings it stated
that the machine did not have Lame installed. I double-checked. It is on
the system.

Thanks for your assistance. I have thoroughly enjoyed this product hence
I bought two of them for my home. And I am sure this is a glitch that can
be quickly fixed, but I am stumped at this point.

Regards,

David Bonner

The server does not check your entire system for LAME. It only looks in the
PATH environment list, the same dir as slimserver.pl or slim.exe, and in the
c:\program files\slimserver\server\Bin\MSWin...\ folder.

If you have it elsewhere, you may still have to copy it to a place where
slimserver will look for it.
