View Full Version : Sync still broken as of 1/18 nightly

Well, synch is still busted. I updated to the 1/18 nightly and updated the
firmware on my squeezebox as requested when I restarted the server. I then
synchronized my slimp3 unit downstairs with the squeezebox upstairs which
was already playing a playlist.



All was well for about 6-7 tracks, then the squeezebox stopped playing
audio. The countdown timer on the display showed the track playing (time
was elapsing) but no audio for about 2-3 minutes, then the squeezebox
started playing audio again but it was out of synch with the slimp3.



This is the same symptom I have been getting with synchronization since
December.

Hello,

I am experiencing the same exact behavior with the 1/17 nightly.
Using OSX
320 CBR MP3

I find it very frustrating that sync is an advertised function of the
squeezebox -- and has not worked since I bought it. Other issues such
as internet radio streaming (that are not part of the advertisement)
are getting higher priority and end up getting fixed. Can basic
problems be resolved before other enhancements are put into place?

FWIW, on yesterday's CVS, sync is broken here, too. I can play one song
in sync, and the next one plays only on the SliMP3. The Squeezebox just
sits there (with an occasional little squeak).

Seems perfectly repeatable. What debug stuff should I be looking at?
