Sean,

Like Michael, My Squeezebox won't restart Paused music after around 35
seconds of pause.

Win XP Home; 06/21 Nightly; v26 Firmware;

Streaming wav (uncompressed by Slimserver from FLAC)
Unpausing after 35 seconds, the Squeezebox plays the buffer (for a second or
two), stopping
when the buffer empties, and the counter keeps counting.

Streaming MP3, unpausing after 35 seconds, the Squeezebox plays the
remaining
buffer till it empties, then silence and the counter stops counting.

Is there any other information I can provide you?

Robert

The nightly release has just been updated with new firmware (v.26).
Please snag it here:

http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads/nightly

5.2 is of course a big release for us - it's been in "feature freeze"
for a long time so we expect this to be a very stable build. It is also
the first release to include the v.2x series firmware.

Fixes in firmware v.26 are:

1) back-out a change to TCP which was reducing throughput for PCM
streaming

2) fix pausing so it doesn't lose the connection if paused for a long
time

*** Most important thing we need feedback on for this nightly: if
you've had problems with firmware updates in the past, they should be
completely fixed now - so please just confirm that it works okay
upgrading from v.25 to v.26. The process is totally solid now as far as
I know - but if you have a problem please contact me right away.


Thanks,
Sean

Same here except with XP Pro. I note that this does *NOT* occur
with softsqueeze so it could be some interaction between the
squeezebox firmware and the server. On the server silm.exe is using
a few cycles but flac is totally idle; so it is not even trying
to stream anything.
