the grayed out clef issue
I searched and found similar issues but was nonetheless unable to resolve.

I run Minimserver 2.0 on a Melco
And Minimwatch on two separate Macs (Mac mini and MacBook Pro)

Minimwatch MacBook Pro runs fine and is stable
But on the Mac mini it needs to be closed and re-opened after a short time.

Both Minimwatches look at the same installation of Minimserver/Minimstreamer

Any ideas?

RE: the grayed out clef issue
This sounds like a network multicast issue. How are your Macs connected to your network (wireless, wired, direct to router, to router via switch)?

RE: the grayed out clef issue
the one that works (MacBook Pro) is over wifi
the on that doesn't (Mac mini) is via an ethernet connection to a switch; switch connected to the wall

RE: the grayed out clef issue
By "the wall", do you mean the mains electricity wiring? Mains wiring ethernet adapters are liable to cause this kind of issue. Can you try eliminating the mains wiring adapters as a test, perhaps with a very long Ethernet cable?

RE: the grayed out clef issue
no, apologies. the ethernet plug in the wall, that leads to the main router.

RE: the grayed out clef issue
It is likely to be the switch that is causing this problem. As a test to confirm this, you could connect the Mac mini directly to the wall and see if the problem goes away.
