View Full Version : Softsqueeze sync problems with 1.13

Hi,

I used to sync between a squeezebox and softsqueeze (on the server)
perfectly well but now the hardware box lags by a few seconds. Both players
are otherwise playing fine.

I think this started with Softsqueeze 1.13 but I am not quite sure. I am on
the latest nightly of slimserver (on an XP Pro machine) and Java 1.5.0-rc.
Audio is on "Primary .."

I *have* noticed that the Slimserver version picked up by SS is always 5.3.
Changing this to 5.4 seems to make no difference, though. The slimserver
settings (http://localhost:9000/) page reports 5.4 as expected.

Any ideas, anyone?

Russell,

That's strange, I have never heard of a squeezebox lagging behind
softsqueeze. Is your network connection between the squeezebox and
slimserver ok? What format of music are you listening to? When sync does
not work it's usually the other way around.

I will looking into why the slimserver version is being reported
wrongly, but don't worry that's just a cosmetic issue. In fact I will
soon be removing that configuration option as it is not required with
the more recent slimserver versions.

Regards,
Richard
