The stream http://wnycam2.streamguys.com/

plays properly on my computer (winamp) but thru my SB3 it breaks up. It sounds like pieces of the audio are being skipped - but not with pauses. Almost as if the audio was being rendered too slowly and then skipping packets when the buffer was full.

Also - is there any debug info that would help. As I understand it, all this is happening in my SB3.

Recent 6.5.1 with Firmware 71.

Plays fine here, it's a 32k mp3 stream with good pre-buffering. Enable Show Buffer Fullness and read this FAQ item to see if your buffer is too low for some reason.

Turning on buffer fullness made the problem go away or at least become much less noticeable :-)

I'll report if it happens again.

One curiosity. My radio station buffer setting is 15 seconds, but the buffer fullness first number is hovering at about 69.

Yeah this particular station pre-buffers a *lot* of audio, very unusual, but should make it pretty rock solid.

Unless it overruns the buffer and packets get dropped - which would be consistent with what I was hearing!
