View Full Version : 5.2 problem -- clicking w/ flac

Have to say I'm having the same problem with FLACs - clicks or crackling
from right speaker, as well as the occasional interference on MP3s. From
what I can see this is not related to scanning, CPU use, buffers.

I don't seem to have any problem with VBR WMAs or Ogg.

Any acknowledgement that this is a recognised issue and that a fix is
planned would be a start - or should I start re-ripping my CDs?

Cheers

Cherise,

Absolutely it's getting fixed - this issue is my top priority right
now. The bug is not widespread though, and I can't make it happen with
any of several squeezeboxen I've tested here. However we do have a
couple units coming in for replacement after exhibiting this problem,
and as soon as I get one here to test with, I will ship a fix. In the
mean time you may want to try revving down to firmware v.23. Or if you
want us to ship you a replacement please contact
support (AT) slimdevices (DOT) com.

Basically it is a software bug, but it only manifests itself on some
units. I am not sure why yet, but I'm sure it's fixable.
