    Hi,

    go to "onbeat.dk/thecus/index.php/N5200_Module_List"

    download latest "perl" and then "slimserver"

    Go to the "module mngt" on the 5200pro screen, install "perl.mod" and "slimserver.mod"

    Regards Lars

    That's because Twonky uses port 9000 and you can't change it. On theother hand, SS can be changed.

    btw, SC7 (now called SqueezeCenter in v7) is looking good. I've been running the beta for a while now.

    Re: 5200Pro + Slimserver?

    I have tried USHARE and Slimserver with PERL installed and enabled with no luck. I am testing with CyberLink SoftDMA client. The client does not see media servers. I can't even figure out how to manage the folder set to be shared by the media server.

    It cannot be that complicated?

    Hi Funkstar,

    I am curious about the new SC .

    I hope Andreas will release a module soon when it goes final

    What exactly are you trying to do? Slimserver only works with the SlimDevices (now a Logitec company) range of products. The latest of which is the SqueezeBox 3 and Transporter.

    I haven't tried the latest builds of SC7 for the past few weeks (been away), but i think we are getting close to release, should only be a few weeks i think. I'm pretty sure Andreas we be on this when it does go final

    Re: 5200Pro + Slimserver?

    Hi,

    I've just purchased my N5200ProB and was wondering how to install perl and slimserver mods also, I have read the above messages but I don't seem to have the 'Module Mgmt' menu item on my System menu??

    BTW I have no knowledge of Linux or servers in general, I just wanted to run the slimservices squeezebox from a dedicated server.

    cheers,
    David

    Re: 5200Pro + Slimserver?

    There is a problem with the current, newest firmware and modules. I don't know what the problem is exactly, but it may well be that the menu options simply aren't there. A new firmware is due at the end of the month that is supposed to fix a lot of the current problems with the N5200.

    Re: 5200Pro + Slimserver?

    If You have FW 2.00.03 on Your brand new N5200, then module management is not possible (thats a bug in the 2.00.03 Firmware, which is a beta version) - if You have FW 2.00.01 then it should be possible.
    Module Management is only available if You have a working raid, cause all the databases and files are stored on the raid.
