View Full Version : Coming off pause...

My SB2 exhibits some off behaviour when coming off from being paused. If I pause and unpause within a few seconds, everything is fine. However, if I pause then unpause 20 or more seconds later, the music will resume, play to the end of the track, and not play further tracks on the playlist.

Slimserver 6.1.1 running on ReadyNAS (have the same problem with slim 6.2 on a dedicated XP server).

Any ideas? Is this expected behaviour? Its one of those niggles that can get *really* annoying after a while!

The problem you are describing is
http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2169.

kdf submitted a patch for the main development branch to resolve this issue..
I'd seen this problem, sporadically, for a long time but I have yet to see
the problem occur since he applied that patch. As of right now the fix is in
6.5 only and has not been backported so you have a few options (that I see):

1) Run the 6.5 nightlies
2) Apply the patch in the bug report to the 6.2 code manually (which may or
may not work)
3) Live with the problem until 6.5 is released

HTH,

Ben

Cool - I'll have to wait until it makes it into the update for the ReadyNAS, usually a few days after the final major point release. But knowing it is coming is good enough for me.
