View Full Version : Problem playing everything

If I go to browse albums on the player then hit play to play everything, it takes about 20 seconds to build the playlist (> 9000 songs) which is ok but during that time I get a lost contact with server message. This is the way I often use my player and it doesn't look too good if I'm demonstrating it to someone.

Would it not be possible to add the first few tracks to the list then start playing, then you can build the rest of the list using a lower priority. That way playback could start almost instantaneous with no loss of contact.

On a similar tack, occasionally when I do the above, the first track will start playing but there is no sound, forward to the next and all is ok.

I'm using the 15/03 nightly on Windows

Thanks
Craig
