View Full Version : Streaming Connection: Inactive ???

2006-04-22, 12:25
Shame on me - I mostly run my server wireless, for the convenience of being able to use the laptop. I occasionally get some dropouts if the laptop is in a bad spot, so I've been watching the Network Health plugin. Occasionally I see "Streaming Connection: Inactive", which seems strange, as if I watch the info for the SMC wireless adapter, it just keeps on ticking. I thought it might be Windows' Wireless Zero Configuration, but I checked, and its not active. Any other ideas what could cause the streaming connection to drop off like this?

It will go inactive when the rest of the track is entirely in the buffer. On an MP3, this will happen quite quickly after the start of a song. On a larger file it'll take longer, but it will eventually go inactive before the track ends.

But yes, running the server wireless can bite you if wireless conditions worsen. ;-)
