Every track checks out, minimserver scan doesn’t throw up any weirdness. Strangely CAN play DSD and 44.1/16 PCM. But when I try to play a PCM file at anything higher I only get silence and the thing sort of dies.
The “elapsed time” slider on the DS keeps going regardless of what I do to the controller (tried 8player, Kinsky, Songbook, eLyric, all the same result).
My minimserver is the latest version and bridge fw is 0.2.1 or 0.2.15 The server is not running anything else other than miniserver and other mac OS gubbins that comes with Yosemite.
[I know the latest bridge fw is 0.2.15 but I cannot seem to do the upgrade. Pressing the touchscreen to “update bridge” gets “finding update” and it takes a long, long time and finally it says “no update found” atop a blank progress bar and then restarts itself (going back to the “initializing” screen again).
The crazy thing is, I can press the pinion/gear icon once and I get “Bridge: 0.2.1” then click the [back] button, click the gear icon again and it will show “Bridge: 0.2.15”!!!
So anyway, I have no idea which version I have, but accessing the bridge through a browser seems to say it’s 0.2.15 so I’m going with that.]
So back to the problem. When I play a .dsf file, the DS shows that’s it’s PCM for a few seconds then it correctly identifies the track as a DSD track. Which is great so I think I have minimstreamer setup right.
When I play a 44.1/16 PCM file, all is fine. Then I choose a track that is NOT 44.1/16 and it all goes silent. The DS also displays a sampling rate and bit depth that is incorrect for the file. Choosing to remain at 44.1k and 16 bits most of the time. (sometimes it’d show 24).
While this is happening, I can only stop the time bar moving by pressing the little “pause” button on the touchscreen.
If I decide to choose a 44.1/16 track it plays as usual. Again, going back to higher bit rate PCM just results in silence.
Sadly I cannot tell you how it was BEFORE this as I just setup minimserver literally last night and got DSD to work by transcoding to DoP. Surely that doesn’t affect PCM files, does it?
Can someone please let me know what is going on? I’m really confused…
Thanks and wishing you all a great 2015!!!
