View Full Version : SLIMP3 drop outs

My neighbor is having the same problem with two Slimp3s. One stops
playing for a second or so, then starts back up. This puts the two out
of synch with each other which is annoying because they are both in
earshot of each other. The lag is about 1 second. They don't seem to
resynch at the start of the next song, either. I can stop both players
and start them up and resynch them manually, which only lasts a short
time.

Environment is OS X 10.3 everything is at the latest level, firmware,
etc. as of December 6, 2003. Connection is via an Airport base station
transmitting to two Netgear ME101s.

We will try the unshuffle mode and see if that matters.

I'd try setting it up without the ME101s (or moving them very close to
the access point.)

Long dropouts on the wireless network (my microwave does this
sometimes) can cause the player to pause and get them out of sync.

I did some further testing with mine and finally got a drop out without
being in shuffle mode. I was using a WET11 ethernet bridge, 2.2
firmware, 4.x server (last version before 5) 800 G4. I watched the data
stream transfer by watching the lights flicker on the bridge. They
would stop blinking, then in 3 or 4 seconds the music would stop.
During this time the Slimp3 was unresponsive to the remote.

I have since eliminated the bridge and wired the Slimp3 into the
network. I have not seen any drop outs since, but there hasn't been
much playing time yet.
