The L/R channel swap issue is definitely still there (v36). So far, I've
always been able to make it go away by doing a soft reboot... but I really
hate to be listening to some music, then notice something isn't right...
then go back to my control track to find the L/R are swapped.

What can I do to help track this down?

Thanks,
Phillip

I was just curious on this issue:

-What is the Bug ID?
-Is it only on the digital out (ie. has anyone noticed it
on the analog outputs)?

Hi Sean (et al.)

Version 37 ...

After doing a couple of soft restarts to get the L&R channels
the correct way round ...
.... I just spent another 30 mins of my life listening to
the "Spoken Channel Indentification" playlist
[Track 1 the AIFF (actually Apple Lossless) version
+ Track 2 the MP 3 version)].

As before, the MP3 version was always correct
and the results for the AIFF version go as follows
(as before "Y" means that the L&R channels were the correct way round
& "N" means that they were swapped):

Y, N, N, Y, Y, Y, N, N, Y, Y ,Y, N, Y, Y, N, Y, Y, N, N, Y, Y, Y, N, Y, N

BTW Daryle: in answer to your questions:

- I don't recall the 'bug' ever getting an ID,
it is something that has been discussed on this list
since the days of the single digit firmware versions
(from around Version 6 or so) ...

- The 'bug' only seems to affect the digital outs (both coax & optical)
not the analogue outs.
In fact even when the digital outs are swapped
the analogue outs are correct.

Thanks for the info. I guess since I only use analog
right now (until I finish my HT/higher end listening
room and get my better equipment out of boxes again :)
I cannot help. You may want to open a bug in bugzilla
so the issue may be better tracked an slimdevices has
a better idea of how many in the community are affected.

BUG?

Using V37. Pressing and holding PAUSE resulting in soft reboots?

I can't reproduce this. Can you give some more details?

Not yet, seems to be random. I will keep testing and advise
