View Full Version : Adjusting latency on squeezebox classic

Hi there

I'm using a Squeezebox Classic (the all-black one with Logitech logo).

I would like to sync it with my software player (using either SoftSqueeze or SqueezePlay Beta) but obviously every computer sound card has latency of varying sorts which prevents a perfect sync.

Is it possible to delay the playback of a hardware player eg. Squeezebox to compensate for the above effect? Typically I am thinking anywhere between 5ms and 100ms although haven't fully tested this.

If not - any plans to have such a feature on hardware players' firmware in the future? Thanks!

Check the player settings -> Synchronize menu. Each player has its
own startup delay, audio delay and other settings specified in
milliseconds. I believe that changes take effect immediately.

I tried that, but when you enter that menu you are only given the option of selecting which client to synchronise with, and as far as I can see there's no way to fine-tune the synch latency or other properties...

Have I missed something?

Make sure you aren't confusing the "Synchronize..." menu which is on
the main page with the "Server Settings->Player->Synchronize" page. I
may not have been explicit enough in my first response.

Ahh I see, the setting is on the Squeezecenter web interface as opposed to the player itself... got it.

Thanks!
