Sorry Dan - I was rather vague as I did not want to start discussing my
problems I
had with version 6 I just managed to get everything up and running again

old version. Basically what happened was:

- I had permanent dropouts when playing music and that's with a signal
strength of

- Version 6 seems to consider more tags than the previous version. All of a
my "browe by Artist" showed up Artists I never heared of. Keep in mind
that ITunes

which were considered as well as "Artist".

So much to version 6. At the moment I am not keen on trying it out again.
because it's in beta stage at the moment anyway and it did not work for me.

Any ideas to my original issue of starting Slimserver?
