Slim Devices is thrilled to report three major updates:

- Squeezebox has a bold new look: four metallic styles from which to
choose, each masterfully hand painted by a local artist. Classic black
"soft-touch" is still available, but the new styles are simply
breathtaking to see in person. New photos are on the web site:
<http://www.slimdevices.com>

- SlimServer 5.4 is now available. This release is all about radio and
RSS news. We've added support for WMA and Vorbis radio streaming, plus
a diverse selection of stations from several internet radio partners.
Our press release details the benefits of this major SlimServer update:
<http://www.slimdevices.com/au_press_5.4.html>

- CD ripping! Slim Devices can now handle the chore of loading in your
tunes from your CD collection. MP3, WMA, AAC, and pure lossless formats
including FLAC are available. Our ripping service is dead simple -
we'll take care of all the details. Your CDs will be returned along
with your whole library in compressed format on a DVD-ROM. More info
here:
<http://www.slimdevices.com/pi_ripping.html>


There is a lot of new information on the web site. Please take a moment
to check it out!

Best regards,

Sean, any chance you'll be selling the colored cases individually?
(seems to have been a good business plan for Nokia :) That blue one is
sweet!

Anyone else have to blow away the .slimserver.conf file when doing
upgrades? I upgrade via the tarball on linux. 9 times out of 10, I
have to erase the .slimserver.conf file and start from scratch each
time I upgrade. Just wondering if this is normal behavior?

BTW: The new colors are great looking!

The coloured cases look great. Hopefully someone will be bringing the
coloured ones into the UK. As others have said, selling the coloured
cases seperately a'la Nokia would be a good idea.

I've only been an owner for a few weeks and am still in the process of
ripping my music collection but it's already changed the way i listen
to my music (most of it's been in a box since i moved a year ago).

Visitors have all been impressed by functionality of the two
squeezeboxes I have but still think it looks a bit 'cheap'. I'd like
to see something that looks like an audiotron - full 19" hifi separate
unit with a metal case and front panel controls. It wouldnt need a
full replication of the remote buttons - scroll wheel, forward, back,
add to playlist and play would probably be enough.

Anyway. Thanks for the software update - i'll have a good play with
it when i get home.

I just upgraded from a nightly about a month old to the new RPM and it
wiped out all my config. )-: Is this a bug?

That's no problem; just restore from the backup you did before
upgrading. You *did* take a backup before upgrading, didn't you? :)

Definitely a "case" of beauty being in the eye of the beholder.
Personally, I like the look and feel of the Squeezebox - it's a bit
quirky, a bit different. A rack full of separates can look dishomongenous
(is that a word?) but if a device is completely different then it can fit
in better.

Having said that, I would like to see a really slim (as in height)
domestic hifi-sized (as in width) box with a black or brushed steel finish
(not decided which I'd like more). It could be called a Squeezedbox!

> I agree with the sentiments about

That's precicely the point. I was unable to watch DVDs for a couple of
days because I lost my TV remote (the player was plugged into component
video inputs on the TV so it didn't autoswitch when the source was turned
on as it would if a scart connection were used) preceisely because there
is no way to select the video input without the remote. Navigation keys
plus start/stop/skip fwd + back would be useful additions.

You could perhaps consider a remote 11b aerial - I'm pretty sure you can
get such things.

That's my thought - it can be awkward using the remote while looking
at the screen to put together playlists (hence the creative approach).
The minimum of controls to select and add to playlists is what i'm
thinking with 'advanced' functions left to the remote. A 'scroll
wheel'/knob (think sony cd players) would allow quick navigation
through lists (much better than up/down).

indeed - all you really need is an extension lead and mount. It's a
standard aerial so they're available for WAPs

This would be useful for those that use their Squeezebox by their
bedside, like me. I keep falling asleep with the remote in my bed, and
in the morning, I'm either laying on it, or it's on the floor somewhere!

We will probably do that after Christmas - right now we would not be
able to meet demand for upgrades, as these are hand-painted cases that
take a while to make.

Dean,

Can I ask why you chose to produce these cases and not a hi-fi sized unit,
in which many on this list have expressed an interest?

Because it was a much easier improvement to make. (It's a different
paint process from the existing cases but the molding, packaging, etc.
are all the same.)

We definitely have heard the requests for other form factors, but we
think that the new color choices are also great.

I'll pay closer attention next time. For a vague description: It just
acts seems to act flakey unless. Maybe I'm too quick to blow away the
config. I've just checked a diff between the old & new config & I can
only see cosmetic diffs like player names etc...

I think "heterogenous" is the word you want :) Anyway, I also like the
look of my Squeezebox. The colored cases are nice, but I'm not sure if I'd
buy one or not...

Since updating to 5.4 I can no longer play radio stations in the
playlist. They will play in iTunes itself, but in Squeezebox interface,
the selector remains on "Stop" and the "Play" button resists
activation. Other non-radio playlist items play fine.

OS 10.3.6

Is this a known bug?

Thanks.

Concerning my prior post concerning the inability to access internet
radio, a solution:

Since my iTunes library consists of only Apple Lossless, I had turned
of all other formats under "File Type." By turning on "MP3," internet
radio was restored.

Hope this helps Phillipe

MP3 is already on for me ; according to the log file, I have a
connection issue but I do not understand why the stream plays in iTunes
(so without any connection problem) and not through the Slimserver.

Is it possible you have a firewall installed that's preventing
SlimServer from making outgoing connections to the network?

You got it !
Thanks to the debug mode, I was wondering why not only the radio stream
was refused but also the daily update availability test ! The
"children" firewall was blocking the outgoing connections for "perl"
since I found in the log a strange connection to I don't remember
who's web site in an earlier Slimserver version. I had completely
forgotten this !
Anyway, thanks for the debug tip !
