As I appreciate the duet's auio out is only a beta feature, but I regularly have to power cycle the controller if it's been left for most of the day before the audio out works again. I would think it's likely that the PC host would have either gone to sleep or been powered down & up again in that time.

Anyone else have issues with the audio out dropping off?

Yeah I've seen that too. Currently my two booms need to be power cycled too every morning to produce sound. The server reboots every night if it matters. Runing 7.4.1 official.

ehm, and what if you would pull the network cable, wait 30 sec's and plug it back in?

it should refresh it's ip-configuration and ask the dhcp server if it's address is still valid. sounds to me that it could be a networkrelated problem?

I've not had it be an issue with the receiver audio, though I have to confess I've only used the receiver a few times I'm just always using the controller with headphones.

The stream "plays" just fine. Only there is no sound. I think however I found the solution. It's related to my other sync problem. When the server time fluctuates too much it can take up to 20 seconds (or so) for the server to give up syncing and just play sound. It's probably this I have seen instead.

In my experience if you try to sync squeezeplay audio, either the controller or software on windows, the audio stops, and you then need to reboot to get it back.
