Thanks Will. (No firewall prob).
I was immediately taken by the Slim software server...the possibilities! So I grabbed & installed it. After 10 days of striving to get it to work, trying to get some real help or at least a straight, intelligible answer from Slim Support or their forum, and making my friends dread my emails of "Try this & let me know if you get sound THIS time"...well, after all that I gave up today.
However, I did leave my SlimServer running.
Just got an email: "Amazingly, the thing is woikin! I've made up a playlist of 119 tracks and it'll be on until I go to bed tonight. Thanks for the great tunes, old friend!"
Great! Fantastic! But why?? And why hasn't my Streamee had other probs, like wrong-speed playback, etc?
How in the world Will, were you able to just enjoy smooth sailing with Slim?
