    Continuously Buffering

    Streaming music continuously buffers playing Spotify premium and Radio Paradise. Restart, unplug restart everything doesn't help. Happens sooner or later when streaming. Very frustrating. Router problem? Touch Problem? Would a wired connection help? Wired from what to what? Router to SB or PC to SQ or Router to PC? There's a lot of links in this chain. I'm thinking a new streamer wired to the router, eliminating the PC makes sense. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

    What is your setup ?
    What type of server / OS /processor memory ?
    What version of LMS ?
    etc.

    Can you play "normal" high data rate (around 320kb) MP3 or AAC streams without rebuffering ?

    Is the problem limited to Spotify Premium and Radio Paradise ?

    Spotify premium and Radio Paradise Flac. Netflix over Roku never had a problem.

    Try Touch connected directly to MySB.com (no PC). I realize Spotify won't work but look for high bit rate stations as bpa suggests.

    And neither will Radio Paradise Flac work, but then again AFAICT Radio Paradise Flac is known for problems (see https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...l=1#post954657 ) so I would ignore it as a test stream since Radio Paradise Flac is known NOT be reliable for a number of users due to problems at Radio Paradise end.
