    Start of track doesn't play

    Ever since I hooked my Squeezebox up to my new Pioneer 56txi receiver,
    I never get the first half second or so of music when I start playing
    a song using the remote. When a song ends and the Squeezebox goes to
    the next song it works fine. It is only when I hit play or next/prev
    track that I miss the start of the song. I have tried both the coax
    and optical SPIDF connections and neither works properly. The analog
    connection works fine.

    When the Squeezebox is connected using a digital input, if I have my
    receiver setup to auto detect either the analog or digital input the
    digital input display shows up when the song starts. If I hit next
    track I see the receiver go back to auto detect mode for a half second
    or so and then back to digital when the music starts playing (with the
    first half second missing). Setting the receiver to not auto detect
    and to only look at the digital input doesn't help either. My only
    guess is that the digital input is turning off for a split second when
    starting a different song causing the receiver to re-detect the
    incoming signal. Is it possible to get the Squeezebox to output
    silence when switching tracks? This is all with the latest released
    server and firmware (5.3.1) running on a Linux server. Thanks for any
    help.

    there is a player setting, under audio for audio startup time to allow more time
    for certain DAC's to lettle on the clock.
