Well, you fixed the song count issue -GOOD!-but the audio hic-cups
playing AIFFs as AIFFs wirelessly are back-NOT GOOD AT ALL.

5.1.4 played native AIFFs beautifully, even if several apps were
hogging CPU. No more. Alas.

Mark,

There were only some very minor changes about how we handle tag
information and the like in the changes between 5.1.4 and 5.1.5. Are
you sure that there isn't some other difference in in your setup
between the two versions?

Wish I could say yes, but the only change was the server software.
I've made no changes to hardware/software etc since playing 5.1.4,
which handled AIFFs perfectly. The second after installing 5.1.5, the
drop-outs were back.

one thing to note is that the infocache did change, so the library would be
reindexed. This could cause playback problems first time. Maybe it will settle
out after a few minutes or so, depending on library size.

Hmmm. Sounds reasonable. I'll put it through its paces for a day or
so and report back. Thanks k.

Am still experiencing drop-outs with AIFF files. I have switched
between 5.1.4 and 5.1.5 several times and 5.1.4 always plays them
with no problem....but the drop-outs occur every time I use 5.1.5.

Mark,

What's the CPU and memory load on your machine for the SlimServer
software? What OS are you running?

Hi Dean,
Dual 800 Quicksilver w/ 1.5 gig RAM, OS 10.3.3.
Again, there are no drop-outs with 5.1.4, but there are with 5.1.5,
even with light CPU/RAM usage.
Glad to supply you with other info if needed

~Mark.
