This is the same error that I believe is causing the playback failure that’s been widely reported on the Roku website (under different names, and with no real resolution). It’s interesting that it happens the same second, and results in the same song being attempted again, successfully.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

This is normal. The roku grabs a bit of the header to see where the song data is, and skips to that location in the file. That way it can skip over the album art if there is any. Yours looks like it does, or else 50Kb of other metadata before the song starts.

iTunes does that sometimes too.

It looks just like the other problems because they are very similar — the connection to the player gets closed before it’s done streaming the whole song. As far as the other reports on the roku forum, I can’t tell what’s happening there unless I can see packet traces. It’s either the case that the underlying tcp stack on the windows machine is closing the connection (excessive timeouts, etc), or the roku is closing the connection (same reason).
