View Full Version : kinks in the SB2?

When I was setting up my squeezebox2 I had to remove my behringer ultramatch
(mk1) from between the sb2 and my dac. With the ultramatch (a jitter buster
amongst other things) in the loop I got no sound and the emphasis light on
both the dac and the behringer flashed randomly. Removing it got everything
working correctly, not that it was a big problem for me as the sb2's output
is clean enough already. This was using a coaxial digital cable (shark wire
terminated with bullet plugs).

I use a Linksys wrt54g which has never crashed.

The great thing is that now Sean and the guys have total control over the
dsping and spdif output it should be fixable via a patch once they've worked
out what's going on.

I'm about to buy my wireless set up for SB2 now. Probably FLAC, definitely
lossless, via Xandros (Debian based) Linux distro. Any other hardware to
stay away from, or more importantly that is really stable?

Does it keep playing audio? Can you control it from the web interface?

That shouldn't be. Which receiver?

Which access point? We tested numerous configs with several dozen
access points. So far we've had only one issue that I know of, with a
specific recent hardware rev of the Linksys BEFW11S4 - we're looking
into it.
