View Full Version : Some test with FW35 (for Sean)

Hi Sean,

I just tested FW35 with my wired SB (non-graphical) using the digital output in
my setup with a dCS Purcell and an Apogee Big Ben master clock. I am using
Apple Lossless on the server.

1) like Mike Reeves I at least once noticed that the LR channels were again
swapped, after a reboot of the SB the channels were back to normal (I did not
try to reproduce it again).

2) bug 416 is still there, when the SB is started and the digital stream starts
(uncompressed AIFF), both the dCS and the Apogee are struggling to lock on the
signal, the Apogee shows that the clock frequency is initially 43.95 khz and
then the clock slowly drifts at about 0.1 khz per second to finally reach 44.10
khz and at that stage both the dCS and the Apogee finally lock.

Hope this helps,
Regards,

Michel

BTW I also noticed some weird behaviour of the remote control. I noticed that
occasionnaly pressing some of the arrows (right arrow for example) when
browsing by genre did not cause the expected effect (as if the up, down or left
arrow was pressed). This is the very first time that I see this behaviour.

Regards,
Michel

Let me add a "me too" here. 9/03 nightly with v35 firmware with an SBG.
I'm finding the remote extemely frustrating to use all of a sudden. The SB
seems to either not be "getting" what I'm sending or it's like it's a
button press behind.

Confirmed - will be fixed shortly.

Thanks!

what about the channel swap and the clock drift (at least as seen on an Apogee
Big Ben), do you have any mean to reproduce these behaviour. If I can be of any
help, let me know.

Cheers,
Michel

Michel,

I can't reproduce channel swap here. let me know what you find with
v.36 when it's ready. v.36 has fixes for a couple of really
weird/intermittent crashes that may be related to the ch swap.

The slow lock-on to 44.1 (when first switching mp3->pcm) is happening
deep in the bowels of the audio DSP and is not something I can readily
fix. I can see it on my frequency counter though and I do have a
request into our vendor to see if there is a way to make the lock
happen faster.

Sean,
thanks for the feedback, good to know!
I'll test v36 as soon as it is out.

Is there anyway in which I can help with extra debugging/tracing ...?

I have put a lot of hours into listening to
that damn "Spoken Channel Identification" track
AND I would be willing to put in many more
to get rid of this bug for ever ...!

Regards

Mike

FYI I use the optical out ...

Hi Sean,

did you get any feedback from your DSP supplier about the slow clock lock when
switching from mp3->pcm (perhaps related to the channel swap as well)?
