View Full Version : Playsist Gets Stuck During Synchronized Playback

2007-04-22, 11:57
I am running into a problem with 6.5.1 where my playlist will get stuck between songs when I am doing synchronized playback. Symptoms are that a song in the list will finish normally and the next one just never starts playing. Players show they are still in play mode in the Slimserver GUI but playback is not progressing. If I press either pause or stop and then press play, the list resumes and plays normally.

I am synchronizing 7 SB3's, 1 SB2, and 1 SliMP3 (all wired) and it doesn't seem to matter if the playlist was set up from the GUI or from a remote. Is this a known bug in 6.5.1?

I've seen the same problem when synchronising an SB3 with softsqueeze; server 6.5.1 on linux. It's only happened a couple of times, so I haven't yet worked out a pattern. If I do I'll report back.

I'm having exactly this problem too.

SlimServer Version: 6.5.4 - 12568 - Debian - EN - utf8
SB3 + Softsqueeze 3.4

If you listen very carefully, the first fraction of a second of the next track is played, but then everything just halts.

Did anyone find a fix?

The common theme seems to be mixing SB2/3s with SliMP3s or Softsqueeze. I replaced my SliMP3 with a Squeezebox 2 and do not see the problem anymore.

So is it definite that we can't synchronize an SB3 with Softsqueeze without encountering problems? This is how I synchronize and often (most of the time) have issues.
