    5.2.1: Slimserver stops streaming sound but otherwise appearsfine

    I have had this problem ever since I installed 5.2.1 and I may have had it
    since 5.2. I definitely did not have it before the new firmware.
    Every now and again SlimServer stops streaming any sound. Everything appears
    to be working just fine (even slim.exe appears to be running) and to all
    intents and purposes the Squeezebox is operating correctly... but I can't
    hear anything, not through the headphone out, the analogue out or the
    digital out. When I am using Softsqueeze as well it too is silent (in fact I
    originally thought Softsqueeze was causing the problem but for the last 5
    days I've avoided using it and the "silence" problem has since occurred
    twice).

    The only way I can get SlimServer to transmit sound again is to stop the two
    slim processes and then restart SlimServer.

    Is this a known problem?

    XP Pro (lots of RAM, processor etc)
    Wireless (signal strength usually about 60%), Belkin
    SlimServer 5.2.1 (or maybe a later nightly)
    Firmware: 29
    No iTunes of Moodlogic
    No extra plugins
    Softsqueeze

    Hi Simon,

    I see a couple of reports like this. Do you know of any way to
    reproduce this problem? Anything you are doing when this happens? Are
    you listening to music when it happens or is your player off?
