Playback stops…

    Hi,

    I’ve recently installed Firefly having upgraded my server to Windows Server 2003 and found myself unable to use Media Center Connect anymore to link to my SoundBridge M500. The installation went fine but when I stream audio it seems to stop after 10 to 15 minutes.

    I’ve looked in the logfile (below) and it stops right during (or after) the last song in the list. I’ve tried changing the scan type to normal and the rescan interval to 6000 but this hasn’t made any difference.

    I’ve also noticed that the Soundbridge has dropped back to the configuration menu where you can pick which media server you want to use, and that I can’t access the Firefly web config page without stopping and restarting the service.

    I’m afraid I don’t know a whole lot about the technology involved and therefore what to try next. I’d really appreciate it if someone could help with this!

    Thanks,

    Adam

    The log you enclosed looks okay. I’d have to see a log from when it stopped working, but based on the timeframe, it sounds like its having a problem when scanning. My guess would probably be a virus scanner thing. Sometimes they stop the server from being able to access the database.

    The 1.1 beta on Roku’s site (http://www.rokulabs.com/forums, in the firefly forum), or the nightlies at http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org should have a version that works around the virus scanning problem (assuming that’s the problem). Try installing that.

    Thanks Ron, I’ll give that a try for future robustness. I say that because last night it seemed to be running fine. I think changing the scan interval did work, maybe I just didn’t stop and restart the service properly the first time.

    As I infrequently add new files and would be able to manually trigger a new scan, is the a way to turn the scan off? Either that or trigger it to run at a specific day and time when it wouldn’t cause me issues during playback?

    Yes. If you set the scan interval to 0, then it will only scan when you tell it to scan through the web interface. That’s what I do — I hate stuff grinding away in the background stealing cpu from me.
