This is kind of a relief actually Peter, if I do have a ripping problem, and I am not going crazy.  I have spent so much time being annoyed by this and trying to track down the problem, so thank you for your time.

All CD's including the one I sent you were ripped on my workstation using dbPoweramp while I worked. I did wear out one drive and replaced it with a Pioneer Bluray but I cannot remember exactly which disks were ripped with which drive, although I do know that at least some of the albums that pause were ripped on the latter drive.

As it turns out I am at the moment sorting out a new ripping solution with a Plextor drive and a quieter PC than my workstation, but still using dbPoweramp which I most sincerely hope is not part of the problem.  The Plextor drive should be here in the next week or two and once it turns up I will put it in the workstation and rerip some of the problem disks.

Peter, is there a way to tell which tracks have the issue?  Can that be automated in some way so I know in advance which CDs to redo?

Much appreciated,

Anthony

PS: what ripping software do you use?

Hi Peter,

Today I was listening to a mp3 album in XXHE 2.02. Every track was ending before the real end of the track in unattended mode. When I switched to attended all was working ok.

Regards Johan

PS: I totally forgot to explicitly tell you that it goes exactly the same here (tried with SFS = 0.06 and 0.08 and at the end of track 08 it stops; 60 thus works). Additionally, my own version (not 100% the same because a few 10ths of a second difference per track) keeps on playing. This may tell nothing much, but I still have to tell it, of course.

Mani, Search on Tidal ...

Possibly you are not the only one who "forgets" to do this ?
Start with RightClick on the Search button ...

Anthony,

I can be 99% sure only, but it looks like you have a ripping problem, or "source" problem otherwise;

I only have this album as an example but say that 75% of tracks are not on "stereo sample" boundary. So for 16/44.1 (what this is) the music data bytes should be divisable by 4 and in 75% of tracks on your album it is not (2 bytes remain).
My version of the same album is in 100% of tracks divisable by 4. Now :

I have just spent 2 hours in finding this after seeing other things I could not really proove to be wrong, just as I can not really proove that this is wrong really. Fact is (or seems to be) :
- You report this as an often recurring problem;
- I have never seen it (the past x years);
- Nobody else reported this (but may not tell a thing).

Point is also that with an SFS of 60 this just plays, but things are really complicated as with the very small SFS at the end of a track the remaining length is cut by two because of an otherwise too short remaining part (think like a buffer needing to play 1 sample which will never work out because of way too much overhead) - which thing does not occur at the larger SFS and *if* it occurs it is super super rare (chances is just 60 / 0.06 = 10000 smaller) *AND* it can be a bug in the program. But if so, why with you and never with me.
This thus, while I see that "half" sample boundary of which I am unsure what it can do (but if you some times doubted whether channels suddenly were swapped, then now you know why; I am not suggesting this, but if things are not cut somewhere, then this *will* happen and don't ask me where this cutting is supposed to happen - all made so long ago by now).

So what remains for now :
What is your ripping means, or otherwise what is the source ?
Maybe we can do something with the answer, or maybe other people speak up with the same problem "because".
Anyway at this moment I have to give up. For you may count :
If you have another means of ripping (or source) present in your library, use that and see whether it occurs with that too.

Regards,
Peter

No Tidal login window appears. How can I get to this?

Hi guys, I'm trying to install and activate XX on my music server. The problem I have is that I don't have a sound device in the server - nothing on the mobo and nothing plugged directly in. With other players I can use the remote connection sound device (e.g. when I connect to the music server from my office PC, I can stream music from the music to the office PC sound device with Roon, or whatever - but not with XX.)

So, how can I activate without a sound device?

Thinking about it, it would have taken me about as long to stick my Dragonfly into the server and just play a track than it has to write this post. I'm going to do that right now...

Mani.

Question meanwhile, Anthony :

I recall something similar from a farther past, and SOMEHOW this only happened to collection albums. I was totally puzzled by it. I also don't recall to ever solve it, though I never see the problem any more.

Is this from a collection album ?

Peter

No, not from a collection album...I don't really listen to them at all except for maybe the odd soundtrack, but have not noticed anything in particular with those.

Theoretically there can't be network traffic *IF* you have set all as should. Test it ? Activate Keep LAN Services and deactivate Persist. Remember the Always Copy to XX Drive.
Now get playing to work (from the RAM OS Disked PC).
Works ? then boot into Normal OS en Deactivate Use Remote Desktop; boot back into MinOS and control the Audio PC by normal keyboard, mouse and monitor.

Now you plainly don't have any network connection during playback.

Peter

I just did this, made double sure of no network connection and still had the pausing issue.  Next I will send you some files Peter.
