View Full Version : Internet Radio Feed - Stream out of sync

Hi all,

Not a issue at all really but wonder if anyone knows the answer for my curiosity.

I played BBC radio 2 through my Duet then turned the same stream on the boom, I noticed that the Duet was a few seconds behind, anyone know the reasons for this ?

It was fine when I sync'd the players so isn't going to cause me a problem.

My guess would be different buffering levels on the players, potentially due to different network speeds at their 2 locations? Also could be something more esoteric like the two players being hooked up to different servers on the BBC side or something like that.

Yeah, the only way to sync radio streams is to have the players synced. Playing the stream separately on 2 players will not work.

Could one be playing Radio 2 through AlienBBC i.e. RealAudio and the other through iPlayer or StaffPicks and so playing a WMA streams ?
