  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I have it set up as wireless in my home network

    From the website

    Arcam are proud to introduce the Solo neo, a music system with superb music performance and network audio capabilities allowing it to play stored music in a multitude of formats along with its internal CD player and radio tuner. With improved audio quality from highly developed pre and power amplifier stages the Solo neo offers a high performance, stylish and easy to use package that delivers music in a way that will thrill any listener.

    The on-board network music player delivers superb performance from music stored on local network devices such as personal computers and NAS drives. It also allows access to the thousands of Internet Radio stations available when its local network is connected to the Internet. In addition, its USB port can play music from local devices such as memory sticks or hard drives while the duplex RS232 connector offers playback and control of iPods via the optional irDock.

    I was referring to the Solo Mini when I said it doesn't do networking; perhaps I should have clarified this at the time of posting.

    Mmm, the Bluesound Pulse Flex looks like a pretty decent alternative to the Sonos Play:1 as it includes more features I like the sound of that the Sonos simply doesn't offer: USB Input, hi-res playback, headphone socket, Line In/Optical In, and more actual buttons to press on the unit itself. In fact, it might well be that the Sonos is now not my default purchase. I'll read up on the Bluesound Pulse Flex later this evening for sure to find out how performs in real life according to user reviews. Thanks for the recommendation :)
