Clarification :

You may recall the last time we did this excercise, and at that time this was about a file which couldn't be found but which should be there, remember ?

Nothing changed since then, it only got worse now.

With the previous version playing unattended never worked as it should but after calling XXhighEnd (Alt-X) and then change the volume during playing worked well).

With the last version as it is now (new clean install of OS and XX) nothing works related to the volume. Not unattended, not attended either (exactly the same response with both). Only when XXHighEnd has stopped (not playing any files) makes it possible to change the Volume.

Mind you that the coverart section is acting weirdo too somehow as you can see from the tests. Probably not related but still, it might...

Will start logging the events...

As I said, the Coverart might be related ...
And at least *that* can happen to me too. Not lasting until the next track, but at least 30 seconds or so. But that is all (and it is W7 Vanilla related - I'm almost sure (used 0.9z-6 for two months with SP1-RC never seeing the problem - ehh, IIRC)).

Okay, new tests and related remarks...

My guess it is all related to Hotkey itself (not the coverart!).

Okay, PC rebooted, checked Log and started to PLAY Unattended

  • Same as before, XX from memory and it starts to play but coverart does not show. Cover art only shows at the start of the next track (not manually but when XX starts to play the next track when the first one ended).
  • Alt-U and nothing happens but looking in the log-files I do see that file error again. Reactivity not different than tested before but now logged...

See log-files...

I tried to play tricks with the file "XXRequestPending.dat" and followed what happened.

  • Open XX-folder and looked for the file but not there at all...
  • Copied my own made file into the XX folder but it will be deleted as soon as XX is starting (the program) and then things are back to normal situations as before...
  • Copied the file again into the XX folder (XX already running) and then clicked to play and then file remains there
  • Now the weird part, Hotkey does not work anymore in unattended mode?!

At least I do not see any response in Taskmanager or anywhere else but the file is still there. Log-files don't show any activity either (those are not attached).

It is needed to remove Hotkey from memory and to restart XX to have all things working again as before...

Hi Peter & Bert,

Well I also just got back from a bicycle ride but I bet there aren't many hills where you compared with here :-(

I rebooted my PC and fired up XX as soon as possible with SFS = 420 on SC. I hit the play button as soon as I could and well before the o/s had settled down. No problem XX grabbed the contiguous memory it needed and I am now running at SFS 500 on SC.

Just out of interest I tried again but this time letting the o/s settle down first - XX could not grab any contiguous memory. So it appears that the problem is solved by hitting play as soon as possible. With my old W7 SP1 build this was never a problem.

Thanks Peter it appears that the answer was simple but I guess that something in the o/s is untidily grabbing RAM during start up and I have to just get in first.

By the way for much of the time my volume control does not work any attempt results in the green bar and that is the way it stays until stop is pressed. But this is not always the case sometimes after a reboot the volume control actually works well but it will always end up with the dreaded green bar. Well hopefully this will be solved with NOS USB.

Bert ... that is more or less (or even more) what I meant;

What do you think I can do with those log file now ? Try to interpret your own manipulations ? Maybe it is not useless what you tried (for yourself), but I can't do a thing with it.

Why ?

So here this ends ... again. Sorry.

Hey Paul ... I can't do anything with this. This will be about Attended, of which I am *stating* it does not work properly. First things first, and this is UNattended. No matter how much you think it is logically the other way around. It really is not.

Good. If you only see yourself that something it missing here. You are saying that at applying 420 you obtain 500. Right ? Of course, from logic follows that you attempted another reboot and next tried 500. But you didn't tell that exactly.


Without telling accurately what exactly happens we will never get down to the problem. Otoh, it looks like it just is solved for you. No matter what is causing it at waiting a little bit too long. Right ?
(if not right, just say so please)

OK apologies I should have made it clear  -  I rebooted the PC, fired up XX as soon as I could and then pressed play as soon as possible at SFS 420 (whilst the o/s was still busy doing its started up stuff). I then played like this for a couple of albums and then just out of interest clicked stop (taking engine3 out of memory) increased SFS to 500 and no problems it worked fine. Nothing else attempted tonight - but I did have a nice meal with family and of course good music.

Ah, like that. Ok Paul, that sure also can happen. But is this with the same system you could hardly get above 0.2, so to speak ?

Oh, and FYI, of course the audio engine should just start right after booting, but because 0.9z-6 really was a kind of rush job because of the NOS1-USB, I never got round to that part. Next version ... Maaaybe the one after that. teasing

Thank you Paul.

Ok, maybe it is allright. Because I assume that

See log-files...

this little text actually says "see log files for what I described above here". Is that correct ?
I hope so, because then it is useful.

Ok Bert. I will just start describing what I see.

a.
It takes 18 seconds to start that album for unattended. This is way too long in my view; you should be having a rather normal system like mine (i'm just thinking of a system without special attention, no overclocking and stuff), and then this should take ~4 seconds for the 13 tracks and 8 cores.
This seems to indicate a general problem.

b.
The no acces to that Requestpending file of course.

More I can't see after 45 minutes staring to it all. It just goes wrong because of b, and that by itself can not exist but does.

But ... huray for something like a forum, and look what I found here : Re: 9z-5 AutoHK problems and the owner of that post is ... Paul.

Here's an excerpt from that post (from a thread which just deals with the same) :

Admin privileges were at "Full Control" for me as administrator anyway but now I have set all the listed users (as shown in the attached) to have "Full Control" access anyway but the problem remains. The log file is still showing the same error message

    path 'C:\XXHighEnd-09-z5\XXRequestPending.dat' is denied

Overall its not a major problem if this does not work because unattended does work but I would like to sort it if I can.

Just a question - does XX create the above file as a temporary file? because I cannot see it in the directory anywhere so wondered if XX just cannot actually create the file in the first place.

By the way I can create files in the XX directory (no surprise really but just thought I would check).

There is one important combined message here :
- At that moment (May 2011) it worked Unattendedly for Paul, and while Attended does not work, the cause is the same : no access to that Requestpending file.
Now, this *IS* of vast importance, because -and as said- I appreciate the problem to be inherently there for Attended, or at least in my system it is. This means that I most probably now know where to look for (that same file thing) and can start from there (because *I* have that problem !).

For my own reference, here is the earlier topic from Bert's problem : Re: XXHighEnd Model 0.9z-4-1 problems.


Well, at least I am able to explain now what actually goes wrong :
This Requestpending file is created by XX, telling that it is dealing with a Remote Command. This, so a next command will be in a queue nicely waiting. However, this file which XX created herself, can not be deleted by herself. Then a next attempt (Alt-u) etc. comes along (the first one failed already), and because the file is still there, the command ends up in the queue forever (after 2 minutes reporting "error at remote command". One little problem : The file is not there at all if "we" look at it with our eyes/means.
Maybe it is sufficient to create the file by another means.

Thanks, then at least the yesterday tests that were done was not totally done for nothing...

It takes 18 seconds to start that album for unattended.

This is the very first track played after a reboot (as described in the post). After that is takes only a few seconds (even with SFS set back to 500 again).

Great, then we only need a solution for this and the existing problem is solved.

Good to know that this is not a problem I've created myself being a "user" not restricted by any knowledge whatsoever.

I hope you'll find the solution for this situation soon...

Hi,

I came across settings that significantly affect the operation of Straight Continuous memory on my PC. I thought his may help generally / be relevant here.

Starting point

The maximum Straight Continuous memory I could previously obtain directly after booting and after starting XX High End was 19mb, frustrating given the PC has 8Gb in it. I could get 77mb Straight Continuous provided that I first played music using Mixed Continuous at 100mb and then went back to a Straight Continuous setting of 77mb.

BIOS setting changes

Peter mentioned in an earlier post to this thread to watch out for on-board graphics cards (which I have on my Motherboard), this placed a spotlight in two settings in BIOS;
1)   The setting that allows the “remapping of PCI memory” in BIOS. This was changed from ON to OFF.
2)   The BIOS can set the amount of memory allocated to the on board graphics card. Values range between 32Mb and 256Mb. This was changed from AUTO to the lowest value of 32Mb.

Effect of SFS

After the PCI memory remap was set to OFF in BIOS, immediately Straight Continuous memory went up to 175Mb without the need to play Mixed Continuous first in order to get Straight Continuous above 19Mb.

Next with the Graphics memory set to 32Mb in BIOS Straight Continuous setting got up to more than 375Mb (have not yet tries to go higher). Again no need to run Mixed Continuous first to get this value now.

The sound is as expected much better with higher SFS.

I hope this may help.

Nick.


Update......

Straight continuous runs out at 600Mb but I have to coax it that high, it will not just go straight in at that. 475Mb seems a good value as a default, what a difference.

I should have said that I have 4Gb memory installed in the PC not 8Gb as above !

Hi Nick,

I find that if I set SFS=500 with Straight Contiguous then provided I play a file via XX as soon as possible during the boot sequence then XX works fine (i.e. Engine3 grabs SC memory before other apps. do). However, if I let my PC go through the whole boot sequence go off for a cup of tea, wonder around, have a chat, read the paper then come back and play a file then I tend to get SC alerts and will not run on SC.

The strange thing is that provided I have been through the procedure of a reboot, run XX as soon as possible so that XX works on SFS 500 & SC then for all subsequent reboots there is no problem running on SFS 500 on SC even if I do not rush to run XX after a reboot. I cannot think of any reason why this should be - maybe there are some subtleties of memory allocation that are not obvious.

SFS=500 is about the max I can get easily and as Nick states above it is possible to coax it higher. It seems although I have 12Gig of memory this does not particularly help in getting a bigger SFS.

Question for Peter SFS=500Mb is shown in settings in XX so why does Engine3 grab over 3Gigs of memory what is the relation between SFS size and actual memory used?.

Hi Nick, in my BIOS the memory allocated to the on board video card was already se to 32 mb. Couldn't find the "remapping of pci memory" anywhere. Was it in a subcategory of the video card? If so I don't seem to have that option. unhappy

Sorry I should have been more clear as I started by mention of the onboard graphics card. The remapping of PCI memory is in the Chipset > Memory settings of my BIOS not in the area for video card settings.

The option title in the BIOS screen is "Memory Remap Feature"

The BIOS help explanation "ENABLE = Allow remapping of overlapped PCI memory above the total physical memory."

Hope this helps,

Best,

Nick.
