    FLAC stream playlist doesn't match the one on RP's website for non-FLAC. Are there separate servers for FLAC and non-FLAC?

    Looks like RP website was tardy updating playlist.

    I've mentioned this several times before (even in the announcement?).
    FLAC isn't a stream. It's more like a huge playlist. Otherwise you
    couldn't skip tracks. The problem is that I don't get the full playlist,
    nor single tracks, but chops of a hand full of tracks in a single file,
    plus some timing information. Therefore I have to calculate when a track
    changes. If I get this math wrong, tracks would end pre-maturely. That's
    why pausing is broken for sure. But why there are random skips, I don't
    know. Could you please run with logging for plugin.radioparadise set to
    INFO, then send me the log once you've experienced an unexpected skip.
    Together with timing information.

    > Hi Michael, wonder if you'd had any more thoughts on this issue?

    No, see recent postings where similar behaviour has been reported.

    Logging...After Muddy Waters played John Hiatt played but LMS Music Info didn't change and Info logging showed nothing indicative. Changing to DEBUG...

    Confused of Advanced->Logging. There is a 'Logging' DropDown box. What is this for? If I pick different values the 'Advanced Logging Settings' do not change. So are both sections separate? The top one for macro analysis and bottom for precision analysis?

    Here are my notes for two cycles of failure to update music info:

    Code:
    Muddy Waters RP begin listening
    
    John Hiatt  no change to music info
    
    Freddy Jones Band ‘In A Day Dream’ no change to music info
    
    Rolling Stones Live ‘Sympathy For The Devil’ no change to music info
    
    Texas Lightning ‘Enjoy The Silence’  reload webpage changed music info to correct song (see log!)
    
    Eddie Vedder ‘Society’ music info correct
    
    Calexico ‘Crystal Frontier’ no change to music info
    
    Doors ‘Lost Little Girl’ no change to music info
    
    Amir Dadon ‘Scraps of Life’ no change to music info
    
    Pin Back ‘Sender’ music info changed (see log!)
    See attached log file.

    That's really odd... After Eddie Vedder it basically always returns
    cached data and never updates (obviously). I think this could only
    happen if something with the timer went wrong. I'm only skipping the
    cache if we're more than 5s from the calculated song change (based on
    the current time and a song's duration). I might actually have a bug in
    that calculation in that if we came back more than 5s _after_ that
    change, we'd miss the update. I'll try to reproduce this.

    (Funny... the thought of the 5s calculation being wrong only came as I
    started to type this response... previously I run many tests, but never
    thought of that :-))

    I think the 5s trigger I mentioned earlier might have been the culprit.
    Please update to the latest version of the RP plugin and try again. I've
    left my SB3 playing RP for about 12h. While I obviously wasn't able to
    monitor it all the time, whenever I did check its screen, the metadata
    shown (title/album/artist) was correct.

    RPF v.2.1.2 is working as expected. After Bill comes on to 'Thank You' the song starts playing and the music info updates about 10 seconds latter. Also, the FLAC playlist now seems totally unrelated to the RP Website Playlist. I thought the other day the playlists matched or were near alignment.
