View Full Version : 7.4 and "Fast-Forward" issues - help?

Since installing 7.4, I can no longer navigate through a given song selection via the “fast forward” button. Previously, with all other software versions, I have been able to fast forward (or “rewind”) through any of my FLAC files (natively supported by the Duet). With 7.4, I can access the “fast forward” button on the controller only to navigate at a very slow rate through any given track/song (at only a slightly increased rate – not much faster than the rate of normal play).

Any thoughts…suggestions will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Ben

Installing 7.4.1 fixed this problem for me.

Thank you. I wasn't aware of 7.4.1 and I only see 7.4 at the official download page. From where did you install 7.4.1?

Google 'squeezebox nightly builds' - which links to here:

7.4.1 is now the official release.

Interesting ...

On my system 7.4.1 just introduced this bug.
7.4.0 was still working fine with my FLACs !

My experience was the opposite. With 7.4.0 I could crash the server very easily while moving back and forth through FLACs. A quick check with 7.4.1 shows no such problem - or, at least, not one that I can reproduce as easily as I could with 7.4.0.

Did you move via webUI ?

When I point with the mouse on the webUI progress bar and press the mouse button, the SB display freezes immediately. The SB server accepts further mouse clicks, but nothing happens ... until shutdown of SB server via Taskmanager.

Seen on any beta 7.4.1_XXXXX and on 7.4.1 final.

I tried it both via the remote and the web UI. I hit it pretty hard without any problem, whereas on 7.4.0 I could crash it very quickly (but NOT immediately).

FLAcs were ripped with a mixture of EAC and abcde.

Strange.

On my 7.4.1 the very first click is enough.
