View Full Version : Random music pauses during playback?

My squeeze box is randomly, and frequently, pausing the music stream and I
need some help.

It will play around 2 sec, stops playing for 2 sec, then play for 3 more
seconds etc...

I'm running server v5.3.1 (production version), on Windows XP SP2, with a
ZoneAlarm F.W.

When I play via softsqueeze on the same machine as the server the music
plays smooth and without problem.

I'm streaming FLAC over a wired network, and the network seems to be working
fine.

I checked both the Digital and analog out of the squeezebox and the behavior
is the same. I've tried to stream different files and the behavior is the
same.

It seems odd to me that the clock keeps counting even when the music is
stopping. This might mean something to someone. So by the time it gets to
the end of a song it has negative time remaining. It doesn't sound like
dropped packets, when it starts back up and it is right where it left off.

This is really not listenable. : (

Hopefully someone will think of something I can try. I'm stumped.

Thanks for everyone's help.

This is probably a problem with your cabling or hub/switch. What kind
of equipment do you have between the server and the squeezebox?
