View Full Version : Audio drop-outs / net flood

Symptoms:

My slimp3 will play for hours without a glitch. Randomly, about once every 3
hours of play, the audio drops out, seems to try to recover about 1 second
later in the song, drops out, etc. After about 3-5 tries it seems to
recover and keep playing just fine.



During the most recent failure I happened to notice a flood of collisions on
the slimp3 ethernet port.. once it recovered it returned to normal (no
collisions).



Setup:

Windows Server 2003 running on a 2.4Ghz P4 (HT enabled) with 1GB RAM and
gigabit Ethernet into a switch. The machine is very lightly loaded and
should not be a problem.



The slimp3 is plugged into a dedicated port on the same gigabit switch so
there shouldn't be any bottlenecks to feed a couple hundred kbits!



Running version 5.0.1.



Is it possible that there is an error condition in either the server or
client that gets stuck in a loop and floods the network until it magically
recovers?



Sorry I don't have a tcpdump or more info to provide!
