There a 2 bugs related to this: 218 and 340. I think this is a major
issue, could someone tell me if SlimDevices are actively looking to
resolve it? If not, do you need more information? This problem happens
all the time on my system so I should be able to generate any trace
information you need fairly easily.

Neil

System details:
SlimServer Version: 5.2.1
Player Firmware Version: 28
O/S Windows 2003 Advanced Server
Wired network.

Neil,

I'd be happy to look at a trace if you'd like to send me one. Just get
a copy of ethereal a save a minute or so of data that includes at least
one dropout. I can look at it and see if it's the server stalling or a
network issue.

BTW: those two bugs you cited are very non-specific and somewhat old.
Not sure what's up with those.

Sean

I'm not Neil, but in an effort to help isolate the dropouts I see with Flac on
a wired connection, I put a bunch more RAM into my server.
Went from 384 up to 768. I still get an occasional drop out,
perhaps once per hour. The buffer display drops to zero but I can't
tell if that is cause or result.

My CPU is wimpy, 500mHz, on a Fedora Core 1 box.
Latest CVS version, perhaps 20 hours old.

It is frequent, but not reproducible on demand. Sorry.

I have posted a reply with a file attached but it is being held by the
mail server because it is too big. Should the file be < 40 k (mine was
about 1 Mb.

Sean, any thoughts on the ethereal trace I sent you?
