I am not having troubles today and am keeping a tablet on and connected full time

David, I think I have read somewhere that with an iPad (dunno if you use that for tablet), already moving to another task in there lets you lose the connection in the fashion you describe.

For ideas it won't be bad to read through this :
A secure way to prevent Windows 10 , updates on the audio PC . Seems unrelated, but I recall that it contains useful info for when a NAS is used - all else the same as your situation, David.

Best regards,
Peter

Has anybody tried putting the short Clairixa between Intona and Dac?

I've had it this way for the past 6 months or so. I prefer it.

Mani.

+1 (never tried it any other way, sounds goof enough for me)


regards, Coen

Thanks. I only have  music on NAS so I cannot control the audio PC by that. It seems that if a connection is lost while the music is playing in unattended, there is no way to re-establish a connection until after a hard boot.  I'll just  keep the tablet on as long as music is playing.

Brian, I haven't yet found out if I can get your suggestion to work. The issue seems to be on the audio PC side. The  losing,  then the locking up the "other user" remote connection.

Yes, all the maintenance on the MusicServer is done via the iPad and RDC.  It seems to work really well...no real problems at all.

Anthony,

I run the MusicServer completely headless

Are you sure ?
You did not mean to say "Audio PC" ?

Not that it matters really, but you are implying that you do all the maintenance on the Music Server PC via the tablet. Can be done, but ...
?

Regards,
Peter

Yes, I do things the same way as Peter, that is RDC from the iPad to the MusicServer and the MusicServer in turn RDC's to the AudioPC.  It works beautifully with no dropouts or problems.  Occasionally the iPad RDC has an issue if I am off doing something else on the iPad and all I have to do is restart the RDC app on the tablet and it connects straight away to the MusicServer (which is always still RDC connected to the AudioPC).

I run the MusicServer completely headless and without a video card and even do XXHE upgrades sans the mouse, keyboard and video card (or monitor).

David,

My chain is this :

Tablet -> Music Server PC -> Audio PC.

I can disconnect the tablet at any time I want and reconnect it (or reconnect with something else) because the Music Server PC is just that, and does not play the audio. It is in normal OS etc. ... all normal.

Hope this helps,
Peter

Hi David, it's been my experience that if you loose your RDC Connection (log off) while music is playing you cannot reconnect once the music stops and you have to do a hard reboot. I use a laptop as my control pc and was able to solve my problem of occasional loss of RDC connection by going into my firewall software and adding my audio pc as a trusted device.

I've just switched over to using the RDC connection and had the Audio PC freeze up with a black screen after the connection was lost. Only the hard reboot gets everything back up and running.

I am not having troubles today and am keeping a tablet on and connected full time but I  had a couple of questions about using RDC.-

Is it possible to play music unattended, (minimized) from the tablet and log off once the music starts  and log back on once it stops playing? If so, is it also okay to log off from the tablet and log back on with another device once the music stops?


Thanks,

David

FYI :

My Audio PC is just headless (no monitor and video card removed).
The related Music Server PC has a monitor connected but I disconnect the monitor from the mains (there's a switch in the power line of it).
This leaves my tablet for control.

Any monitor is of the utmost negative influence and can always be easily measured on the DAC output. Always (91KHz or so).
