View Full Version : Powering off one SB1 when synced pauses the other SB1

I'm seeing an odd behavior that I believe is a bug, but was hoping to see if
it's known or expected behavior or if others have seen it.

What I'm seeing is this ... I have two SB1's powered on and synced with each
other, and perhaps playing for hours. When I power-off unit A (using the red
power button on the remote, and NOT by pressing "pause" first), and then
return to the room with unit B I'll often find that it has stopped playing
as if it had been paused. Pressing "play" on unit B resumes at the same song
playing when unit A was powered off.

I would expect to see this if I had pressed "pause" on unit A while synced,
but not when powering one of the units off. Some other data points: it
doesn't always occur. It also occurs with similar frequency when SB1's are
sync'd with an old SliMP3 unit (though rarely used these days as it resides
in the garage). During the course of the day with players sync'd I'll often
control the music from either of the units (choose new playlist, skip to
next song, etc.), but I'm not sure which of the units may have been the last
to control the music nor if it matters. The problem occurs in both
directions (powering off unit B pauses unit A).

So is anyone else seeing this, or know if this is known/expected behavior?

- duano!

What version of the server are you running?

Is Synchronize Power set to Power off/on separately on all players?

If you are willing to try the latest 6.2 - does it do the same? [it has some changes in this area]

If so please raise a bug.
