I’ve got a recently set up Volumio that sometimes gives me skipping problems and I’m trying to pinpoint the source. Since the documentation is mainly concerned with normal operation, I wonder if there are any log files or similar that might assist me with finding the root cause of my issues.
The hardware is a Raspberry Pi B+ with an external dac from MifiMeDIY and an 8 GB SD-card. The software is the standard Volumio image version 1.5
When connected using regular wired networking, it seems to work fine. Using Wifi it mostly works, but I get dropouts and skipping just like the buffers would be depleted. This occurs more frequently when using the wifi for other purposes from other devices.
The wifi info in the Volumio network page shows that I have a 50-60% signal strenght and 20 Mbit/s bandwidth. I’ve increased the buffer sizes to 8192 bytes and 30% respectively - so it seems to me that there is no reason for the buffers to be depleted. The partition size of the SD card is also increased to max as shown in the excellent guide here.
Soo… any hints on how I can go about with my trouble shooting? I would really like to get this thing working with Wifi.
Edit: the music is read from a NAS connected to my home LAN.
