View Full Version : Gaps in playback

I wouldn't even know where to start in getting a network packet dump.

I was running 5.1.6 (5/31/04) and firmware version 23 when I reported
experiencing the problem. I installed 6/11/04 server not long before I saw
your email. The server's still at 99% CPU from starting up, so I haven't
started serving songs yet. (BTW, that scan at server start is annoying,
too, when it pegs the CPU for as long as it does.)

I've got approx 4500 flac titles being served from a PIII-666 running XP
Home (fully updated)

Is there any way any of you guys experiencing these gaps can capture a
network packet dump which includes a dropout period? Or even a dump
which just includes a minute or so of playback, just to check you
aren't seeing the same TCP breakage some of us are?

What player firmwares are you running?
