Thanks.
Sorry for my ignorance. What is "transcoded"?
I use only WAV files ripped by EAC. I will check again tonight. And, no, I
don't think anything changed in my settings.

And no other changes in your settings when you upgraded? Remember that
Forward and Rewind only work on files that don't get transcoded.

Basically, the default for wireless playback is to play WAV files as
high quality MP3, as this saves bandwidth, which can reduce problems
such as dropouts. For wired use, WAV is played as WAV. You can ensure
WAV is played as WAV even for a wireless connection by going to
Player Settings, Audio, and setting Bitrate Limiting to No Limit.

And if WAV is played back as MP3, the forward and rewind buttons don't work.

Possibly the upgrade reset your settings.

With an SB2, WAV is transcoded to FLAC. It's possible to disable this
transcoding on the Server Settings > File Types page of the web
interface. Without disabling this setting, you will not be able to
FWD/RWD WAV files.
