View Full Version : Basic questions: stops after each song, and FF broken

Hi there,

I just received my SqueezeBox2 an hour ago. Works great overall, but there are a couple basic things that don't:

1. It stops after every song it plays. e.g. I add a whole album to the playlist, the first song starts playing. When it gets to the end, it never goes to the second song until I press the next song button.

2. FF and Rewind don't seem to work: when I press & hold FF, the display shows x2 (and then x4, x8, ...), but I don't get any sound, and I can't get it out of that mode. Play restarts the song from the beginning. This is with wma files in case it matters.

This is with server 6.2.0, downloaded today.

thanks!
David

known bug; it is being worked on:
http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2356

not sure about item 2. fwd wrks for me, but I never use wma.
it is lossy wma or lossless? lossless would be transcoded, in which case it
should even be letting you FWD at all since transcoded formats can't be
scanned
like that.

server settings->debugging, check d_source, and the open your browser to:
http://serverIP:9000/log.txt. that should show some of what is going on when
you scan. you can use that info when you file a bug report.

Thanks for the quick reply, kdf.

Glad to hear it's a known bug being worked on.

For the FF issue, the tracks are lossy VBR wma. If I can't figure it out, I'll file a bug with the log.txt info.
