Hi Arjan,

Maybe it is not the best idea to cange the volume by means of XXHighEnd in that (Unattended) fashion. So if it happens you you like that only, then we can bet it is that (for your situation). Also, this is never tested of course. Also not by me and as you actually just told, when I'd try 10 times of course nothing goes wrong. So it should be used by a 100 people each day 20 times, and then we'd have a nice test base. But I am afraid you are the only one ...

Regards,
Peter
3  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / Re: How to install 2.08 to RAM-OS disk? on: October 21, 2017, 03:36:34 pm
Hi Stanley,

Boot into the BASE of the OS you want to apply the 2.08 Upgrade patch to, and pase it over the c:\XXHighEnd\2.xx folder. In there unrar it.

When all set, boot back into the RAM OS again.

I am not even sure whether WinRAR is on that OS. I'd think it is. But if not : WinRAR.

Regards,
Peter

Joel, I think I may have a better response :

If you are now using another interface (and it looks like it), select the Kernel Streaming driver for it (KS: prefixed). Now you won't have the WASAPI message because you are not using WASAPI (WDM). This would even be better because SQ is better from Kernel Streaming (which your other interface does not offer).

Robert,

That other night I just changed the SFS to somewhat higher without having in mind to what exactly. Day before yesterday I found that I had set the SFS to 1.80 (so apparently I doubled it). This is also good for the volume change (hardly any stutter with this SFS setting) but it wasn't about that for me. A more friendly sound it was about (mostly related to MQA) and I think it helps for that.

Thank you for the feeback on the Oppo.
You could try to stop 16/44.1 playback, kill the Sound Engine (click blue led in the right hand border), select the 24/96 etc. and start playback.
This re-engages the DAC in a somewhat different way and it could be interesting to know whether this makes a difference (now no ticking).

Also revisit your own observation with the first track vs the second. You may have a different opinion on that now, which could be helpful, also to me.

Regards,
Peter

Hi Joel,

I think you're copying the last bit of a two-part message, the first part telling you the Clock Resolution internally is set to something else you denoted yourself (Clock Resolution is a setting you'll find at the bottom in the main screen under [ Q ]).

The message is harmless and can be avoided (about that, see the message itself). It is not related to no sound, as long as you click it away or avoid it (see message). Or set the Clock Resolution to the smallest mumber yourself.

The message can originate from WASAPI itself but only in more rare circumstances. It is more likely that something else hogs the Clock Resolution (setting) which is legitimate (just like XXHighEnd does it) but not convenient for our audio (because it is a SQ parameter).
With the notice you may have a Chinese programmed XMOS driver at hand, I would blame that right away (now the driver can more easily obtain its speed like 768 over USB). But don't let that disturb you - or at least not now.

The short message is : this is not related to not getting sound.

At each attempt in such a situation (of trying to squeeze out sound) kill the Sound Engine first (click lit blue led in the right hand border).

Best regards,
Peter

Here we are again with a price increase.

Quote
- The 32GB of memory at first was ~60 euros while now it is 185 (and rising);

Yes, and now it is 290 euros !!
For this reason I had to increase the price again, but with 50 euros only. This is because by now the processors (all of them) dropped about 50 euros which will be related to the EUR-USD currency rate.

Yesterday we bought memory for 5 systems against this price (hey, at this moment it is not even allowed to buy more at one time), so for these 5 systems the sales price is fine (see first post in this topic with per today adjusted prices). But 3 systems (or maybe 4) are already sold ...

Thanks,
Peter

- In Task Manager: File -> Run New Task -> explorer
explore away, It's that simple:)

I know. And it is a "stupid" thing to do, because you start many services and things which should not run and which won't be killed again unless you stop and restart playback ...

Then activate your OS. swoon
Which will upgrade it as well. swoonswoon
Careful, you ! hehe

Haha Jonathan,

Yes, your NOS1a arrived day before yesterday.
Yesterday we had the annual village feast so the soldering iron remained cold. Today we will be finishing another G3 and after that yours will be on stage.

Happy waiting !
Peter

Well, I can't reason out how that would work.
All I know is, Henk, that I heard you talk about starting Explorer etc. which makes me scratch my head.
And of course if you bring up the GUI (still playing in Unattended mode).

I'd say there isn't even an opportunity for Windows to show that, when in Unattended (there's no canvas for it).
Maybe when you don't use the Wallpaper Coverart ?

It would be nice though if I could just boot the machine and start playing...

Yes Lazy You. That is why I never shut down any PC wherever I am. Happy

Hi Henk.

All normal.

Attended, I reckon.

Arjan,

Hmm ...

In any event the shorter the SFS the sorther the burst. Coincidentally I changed mine from 0.9 to 1.5 yesterday, so maybe I can recognize it starts to happen to me too (it did once for 2.08 but I have it 1-2 times per year anyway (1 time will be closer to the truth)).

What is your Q1/xQ1 ? (mine is 14/1)

Peter

Hi Henk,

I was referring to the topic and the consistency plus the help in the .bat itself, so you could not make mistakes. That is all.

And that you very clearly do not at all what's in that texts, is also clear, right ?
In other words :

If you think you can automate things, which for a reason is not in any help or topic described, you are on your own. Also, might you be able to find the topics/posts of concern about automatic start etc., you will see that I explicitly NOT advise that. So you can do it, but now it is *you* who must know how. And strangely enough, there it goes wrong. Funny eh ?

Quote
If I reboot in MINos, my own .cmd file does not work as intended. It either never even starts copying files to the E:\ drive, or it does it way too late.

The service taking care of these things won't run. Later it might start for other reasons (decision of XXHighEnd) and again later it will shut off again (XXHighEnd again). And then later it will start. And so on.
Good answer eh ?
haha

In Normal OS all services just happily run, so there you can't have the problem.

Now, follow the procedure as I have written it, be a bit less lazy and all will be fine. OK ?
Happy
Peter

PS: Another advice : don't try to force that (whatever) service to run because it will be one big mess. I promise !

Hi there Henk,

This works well in MAXos, but for some reason not so peachy in MINos.

I suppose you can guess that this is hardly a description I can deal with. Agreed ? haha

Quote
So now I wonder, what am I doing wrong?

Quote
I had never done this before, but as I am rather lazy, I thought to streamline Peter's process a little.

That. Your lazyness is fine though. Happy

I am not sure whether you read / used this topic :
Installing and using a RAMDisk (IMDisk) but notice that at the bottom in there there's this link which includes a RAMA.bat.
If you already used that, then I suppose your problem is that you removed the aiding texts from it, so now you don't know what to do any more (?). Anyway, I'd keep that A: en B: drive the same because otherwise the drive letters may be occupied (A: and B: never, unless you you still use floppy drives whistle). Now you can not make mistakes if you follow the "guide".

I don't know better as that this works for everyone, also in MinOS.

Best regards,
Peter
