For other readers of this thread, AlienBBC 2.5 has a menu called "Alternate Liusten Again" and this will play RealAudio. To get AAC streams with BBCiPlayer the minimum SC version is 7.3.3 but best to use 7.3.4 as that has more bug fixes. BBCiPlayer does a little more processing as it has t...

Listen Again in MP3 is only available for UK listeners and as Dupont said WMA is not yet available although I think Nov is only for Local radio - WMA for all station may be later. RealAudio Listen Again is still available for national stations but BBC website has changed and broke AlienBBC and it di...

If you are trying Slimserver - which has changed name again recently - I would advise using SqueezeCenter 7.3.4. I don't think BBCiPlayer plugin works with version older than 7.3.x and 7.4 is just recently released and has a number of issues. When BBC starts providing WMA Listen Again - I expect ven...

You should use the BBciPlayer plugin as support for AlienBBC plugin is being reduced as BBC have said they will stop using RealAudio around 30th March 2010. See http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/radiolabs/2009/10/realmedia_an_update.shtml I think this will also affect Receiva based radios as they will have...

When working with Slimserver/Squeezecenter the soundbridge emulates an SB1 which could not play WMA natively so you need the QNAP to transcode from WMA. AlienBBC only handles transcoding both RealAudio and also WMA since both use mplayer.

I don't know if it works with Roku but if you are in the UK you could try the BBCiPlayer plugin which plays the MP3 Listen Again streams from BBC - no need for MPlayer and the streams are better quality.

There is no firmware for M400 which has Squeezebox emulation.

You cannot sync stream.mp3 interface. Slimserver does not implement sync in stream.mp3 as Slimserver cannot/monitor the amount data in the playing device.

M400 will not work with Slimserver as emulation is removed from firmware. Should be possible to stream but the port number to be used depends on how you have installed Slimservers. Normnally slimserver uses port 9000 but if there is already a server using port 9000 users normally goto 9001. The port...

Because of litigation fears by the original developers of AlienBBC - AlienBBC will not stream to stream.mp3 only to Squeezebox type devices.

how easy is it to upgrade the NAS software Slimdevices/Logitech only provide standard installations for Windows, x86 Linux and Mac OSX. All other slimserver installation will be "custom". How to upgrade depends on the NAS and who installed it. If a vendor installed it (e.g. QNAP, Infrant)...

There is probably no need to upgrade except to perhaps 6.3.1. Unlike a real Squeezebox, there is no firmware update for Soundbridge from Slimserver. As it appears to Slimserver, the Soundbridge is always at firmware 40 as it pretends to be an SB1. Most of the 6.5 stuff either improve SB2/3 functiona...

WPA is transparent to Slimserver. I think the issue in the referenced thread relates to the firmware in the Squeezebox. Initial communication uses broadcast UDP packets on port 3483. The playing device (Roku, Squeezebox etc.) broadcast (or could be multicast) that it is looking for Slimservers hosts...

The M500 is not the same as the Homemusic. Slimserver will never work with a Homemusic.

If you have an M500 then probably the factory firmware is about 2.5 or 2.7.
