I'm trying to get SoftSqueeze on WinXP to synchronize with my new SB2. No matter what I do it remains between 1/2 - 1/4 second delayed.

I've gone through the checklist at
http://softsqueeze.sourceforge.net/sync.html

- I've upgraded to 2.0b6 and SlimServer 6.0.1 - 2895 (running on Win2003, connecting over ethernet.)
- I've tried using both Sun's JRE 1.5 and the beta of 1.6. 1.5 has the same delay as 1.4, 1.6 drops to about 1/4th second (to my ear.)
- SoftSqueeze is set to use the primary audio driver; I've tried switching at the Windows driver level between the sound card and a pair of USB headphones with no effect.
- Switching between the two MP3 codecs has no effect.

Anyone have any other ideas? I actually bought the product because I thought I would be able to synchronize my home office with the rest of the house, so I'm somewhat dissapointed!

Thanks,

- Nate

Can you double check that you are using the Primary Audio Driver. The
Primary Audio Driver is not available in Java 1.4, so if you are
switching between JRE versions you need to check that setting. If you
select the Java Sound Audio Engine does the delay get worse?
