    The large metaint is not an issue (well I hope for most players) and makes perfect sense. Now, I see you servers are back on their feet but I think there is a bug to be corrected in LMS. The bitrate should be updated, even f the first value is incorrect, the parsing of the ogg header should have overwritten it. Let me check
    LMS 7.9 on Pi 3B+ & Odroid-C2 - SqueezeAMP!, 5xRadio, 3xBoom, 4xDuet, 1xTouch, 1 SB3. Sonos PLAY:3, PLAY:5, Marantz NR1603, Foobar2000, ShairPortW, JRiver 21, 2xChromecast Audio, Chromecast v1 and v2, Squeezelite on Pi, Yamaha WX-010, AppleTV 4, Airport Express, GGMM E5, Riva 1 & 3

    I've submitted a patch here https://github.com/Logitech/slimserver/pull/413 which solves the issue, not in a fully satisfactory way b/c the bitrate in header is wrong, but at least 1500 is used a 1000's not, as 1's. I still think we'd rather trust the bitrate from the track if we were able to acquire it rather than the one from the HTTP header...

    I've added a step 2 in the patch that let user see the proper bitrate...

    The fact that full metadata is there at every icy-metaint creates way to much noise IMHO, but that's another discussion

    Confirmed that disabling OGG-FLAC on a pCP Player/Server allows metadata updates to work correctly.
    This change is NOT necessary where the pCP is a Player only !!!
    Yet to try the change on a server where I have an SB Touch available.
    I have OGG FLAC set to native on my Raspian server and metadata seems to update correctly on my Radio and Material skin. I have noticed some pops and disturbances in the sound.

    Yes. There is interference coming from somewhere which we are investigating. I suspect the encoder stage of the audio chain.
    VB2.4 storage QNAP TS419p (NFS)
    Living Room - Joggler & SB3 -> Onkyo TS606 -> Celestion F20s
    Office - Pi3+Sreen -> Sony TAFE320 -> Celestion F10s / Pi2+DAC & SB3 -> Onkyo CRN755 -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Dining Room -> SB Boom
    Kitchen -> UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) - Pi2+DAC ->ToppingTP21 ->AKG Headphones
    Bedroom (TV) - SB Touch ->Sherwood AVR ->Mordaunt Short M10s
    Everything controlled by iPeng
