    Is anyone else noticing a lot of loading errors and poor performance from Slacker? Additionally, I'm finding that it will never play the song I ask for anymore, but instead plays others in that channel, similar to Pandora's approach.

    This started recently for me and I haven't done any firmware updates in a while. Still on 8.0.
    I've rebooted multiple times (and usually have to almost every day to get music going at all).

    Perhaps unrelated but: For the past few days, first thing in the day the big screen usually mysteriously loads the Internet browser instead of navigation even though I never use the slooooow Internet browser.

    I've had loading problems on Slacker for the last couple days. I did about 6 weeks ago for a few days as well. I thought it was just my car, but it may be Slacker's issue.

    Hey, hope you're doing well! Yeah, I've had Slacker problems recently too. Songs stop playing and show "Load Error" or something fairly often. I'd say this has been going on for a month or so for me and I've had a FW update during that period. It had problems before and after the update. Current FW is 17.14.35.

    Edit: I've had 2 FW updates during this time but the issue remains.

    I've also had similar issues recently.

    Ditto. I haven't been able to play an actual requested song for the past week or so if memory serves me correctly.

    I've noticed some bugginess as well. Some of the things I've noticed is channels switching, some garbled music, buffering problems, and incorrect album art. I've tried rebooting but the symptoms reappear. It's not serious but just points to some underlying issue. I'm not sure if other aspects of the media system are affected.

    Seems to have recovered. I was able to play several songs as "first play" when asking. No action on my part.. not even a reboot this time.
