I have an SB1 with server 6.2.1, an Alien BBC 1.00 - Mplayer should be the latest one, as far as I know, having the 20051113 zip file version.

Alien is, however,giving me a problem when BBC is concerned.

Virgin Radio works well.

BBC, on the otherhand, start hicupping every three to four seconds .. Very, Very frustrating.

I attempted to go though the various threads to find a solution, but, I am now at a stand still .... I do not know what to do, and your help would really, really be appreciated.

I flagged source and souce-v as debugging, and am getting this reading

Why am I getting the message "Underrun while this mode: play"?

Can I solve it?

Help me out, please

I would really be appreciated.

Are you normally able to play uncompressed music on this player, i.e. stream as wav to the player?

It may that the network between slimserver and the player can't sustain the data rate. If so try enabling bitrate limiting for this player using the web interface. [assuming you have lame installed]
