View Full Version : radioio v. SqueezeNetwork

2006-03-20, 21:50
For the last several days, I cannot listen to any radioio streams on my SB2s, because of constant hiccups; but other streams do not manifest this defect. And yet when I switch to SlimServer, no problem listening to radioio.

Is there a conflict between SN and radioio lately?

I second that. What he said.

The only difference is that on SN your player is streaming directly. With SlimServer, the server talks to RadioIO and then sends the audio on to your player(s). I guess the difference between the SlimServer buffer and the player buffer might account for this problem. I personally have not had any problems listening to RadioIO over SN.

Well, I have not changed anything on either of my SB2s. Why would this suddenly begin happening if not for a conflict between SN and radioio? Something is wrong.

Woohoo! It's working fine now. I don't know if the note I sent to radioIO tech support yesterday had anything to do with it, but they acknowledged the problem.

Me: "I've been having trouble with all the RadioIO stations via my Squeezebox v2.0 using SqueezeNetwork. I get hiccups and interruptions in the streams. If I use the SlimServer, no problem. And no problem with the other streams I listen to. This is a recent issue, just started happening a few weeks ago, and I'm not the only one with the problem. The normally-helpful Squeezebox support staff didn't have a solution for this one. Any thoughts? Have you changed anything that may be affecting us?"

RadioIO: "We haven't but our ISP may have. Other customers have been having problems also. I will forward to them also.

That's a big 10-4. Working for me now, too. Suddenly, life is better again. Thanks for prodding them!
