I’m having dropouts of many seconds when playing FLAC.
New user. registered to post this query.
Ultimate goal is to have a Rpi3 and an I2S DAC (undecided as yet) but until the money presents itself I am “settling” for an x86 install (to local 320Gb spinny disc).
Specs: Intel Pentium P6200. Dual core @ 2.13GHz
RAM - 3GB
Onboard audio ( I suspect Realtek AC97 but haven;t checked)
I’m using the onboard audio, via 3.5mm–>RCA phono lead to my amp. I’ve played with the buffer size setting, within the UI but nothing has had any effect.
The files I’m playing are being stored on /mnt/NAS from the defaullt install.
Any suggestions anyone? Why might my music suddenly stop playing for several seconds at a time?
I’ve not got a massive collection of music but I have tried to keep it all as flac. I don;t appear to have any issue when playing 128K MP3 streams.
