View Full Version : Now do I give up?

OK so I have reduced the packet size to 800 on my SlimP3 which has meant
that the big silent gaps have now stopped happening on my wifi set up but I
still get at least two - what can I call them - hesitations? - in every
track. They are really disconcerting to hear. I have also set up the
encoding feature to re-encode to 192 - I dunno if that helps or not. I have
also turned on the buffer display which shows it is sitting around 98-99%. I
have no idea if this good, bad or indifferent....
Seriously thinking of plugging in an ipod and giving up on this time-waster.

Best wishes,
Neil Hunt

Neil,

Try 1100 or 1200.

Sorry you're having trouble with SLIMP3. I know this isn't much help,
but we did vastly improve the efficiency of streaming with Squeezebox.
SLIMP3 just wasn't originally designed to run over wireless networks,
which often have high rates of packet loss.
