View Full Version : Audio dropout status?

I have seen a lot of threads that deal with audio dropout on the toslink
output from the squeezebox, however they all appear to deal with FLAC. When
I use the alarm function on my squeezebox (playing VBR MP3s) digital output
to my Yamaha receiver and the alarm activates and the unit starts to "go to
sleep" with gradual volume decrease I start to hear static as the digital
output synchronization seems to slip or fail.
Frequently after the alarm function shuts off with the above behavior the
unit will actually start playing the playlist again.
What is the status on digital audio dropout problems and what additional
information can I gather to correct this problem?

That's a new one... does it do this when lowering the volume using the
remote?
