Hi,

I received my SB3 yesterday and today when playing playlists (or an artist's album or any other way of listening to several songs) it takes 20-30 seconds for it to start playing one song after another has finished. Why?

When I browse manually during listening and click play on the remote on a song or artist etc. the music starts nearly instantly, so why is there a lag at all when playing the playlists (when the SB3 has time to cache up the next song before finishing the first)?

I'm using WLAN with an 81% quality according to SB3. Firmware 28 and Slimserver 6.2.1

Did you install the iTunes Updater plugin? If you did, and you are
running slimserver as a service, then the delay is caused by that.
You'll need to change the updater to use offline mode, or run the
server manually under a user account.

Thanks for the tip. I remember I'd read it elsewhere too. Unfortunatly it didn't work. The only thing that worked was setting the Itunes Update to off (but still retain the Log: on setting).
