View Full Version : Synching FLAC with both SB1 and SB2

I have an SB1 and an SB2 on order. My collection is entirely FLAC, so I
was wondering what SlimServer 6 does when it synchs FLAC streams to
multiple Squeezeboxes when they consist of both SB1's and SB2's. Does it
send PCM to the SB1's and FLAC to the SB2's or will all streams be PCM?

I have a feeling that this hasn't quite been worked out yet. I've tried to
sync my SB1 to my SB2 using the xsync.pm plug-in. The only way I got it to
work was by selecting flac->mp3 via lame transcoding in the server file-types
settings. I expected flac->wav to work, but it didn't. (No flacs would play on
either device when they were synced.) I expect that as more SB2s are delivered
into the hands of SB1 owners, this topic will get raised again and again and
we'll see a fix in Slimserver v 6.0.2 or so. Just a guess.
