View Full Version : TimeKeeping issue with 5.1.5



BVOnline
2004-05-30, 06:38
I am running 5.1.5 as a Windows service on Windows 2000 Server. Ever
since switching to 5.1.5, I've noticed that the time displayed on my
SliMP3 display is gaining about a minute a day (this morning, it was
over 5 minutes fast). The PC that SlimServer runs on has the correct
time, so I can only conclude that the SlimServer code only syncs with
the PCs system clock when the service starts.

Has anyone else noticed this? Or better yet, found a way to have the
service re-sync more often?

I've tried automated scripts to stop and restart the service (using NET
START in a batch file), but the restart fails more than it succeeds....

If using apple lossless, wav, or AIFF files, my wired squeezebox
hiccups (about .5 second loss of sound) a few seconds after selecting
and playing a new song. It seems to be some kind of buffering problem.
If I am playing whole album, it doesn't do this at the beginning of
each song.

just to be clear: i am not talking about a pause between songs, i mean
that a song starts to play for 2 seconds or so...followup by a short
break in the music...followed by the rest of the song playing as it
should.

This doesn't seem to happen for more compressed (ie, smaller) files.

Any way to fix this?

cheers,
jk

I'm using the bundled version that was live yesterday. SlimServer 5.1.5.
I'm going to try to reinstall Windows and the server again today with
both the 5.1.5 release an also the latest CVS release and see if i have
any luck either way. I'm trying to think if there's any more info that
might be helpful. I've tried it with Win Sever 2003 and it did actually
run but the service would intermittantly stop giving an unknown event
error. That's when I went to XP. It's WinXP SP1. I've tried it without
all the patches and WITH all the patches with the same result.

I've googled around and there are a few other people having this same
error but in different places...
