I am working with the following equipment
DirectStream DAC with Network Bridge 1
QNAP TVS-463 NAS Intel Quad Core with 16 GB Memory
1GB Ethernet wired connection through a 1GB Linksys switch
I have checked “Disable SetNext Support (for broken renderers)” for the DAC.
(see attachment “01 DLNA Controller Options - check_Disable SetNext Support.gif” for screen shot)
I have checked to make sure “Stop After Each Item” is not checked under Playback Shuffle.
(see attachment “02 Playback Shuffle - not checked_Stop After Each Item.gif” for screen shot)
Today I have tried more test to troubleshoot my continuous playback problem.
I selected my DAC and then loaded a complete CD into Playing Now from my NAS and the play back starts.
(see attachment ‘03 Add to Playing Now.gif’ for screen shot)
The first four tracks ended and the next track started.
Track 5 also started but stopped playing during the track and the rest of the Playing Now list is not playing but still present.
I restarted track 5 and after it ended track 6 starting playing.
Track 6 ended abruptly 1:58 into the track and track 7 started playing.
The right panel showing my devices (Playing Now Zone) jumped back up to Player but my DAC was playing.
When I clicked my DAC I could see track 7 was playing. The remaining entries that were in the Playing Now list have disappeared.
When I reselected the CD I can see that track 7 is playing.
This is very confusing. I thought I had the JRiver configuration wrong so I tried another DAC with the same configuration.
To continue testing my network I put my old DAC back in my stereo using the same Ethernet cable and same switch port on the same switch.
I selected the same CD and clicked Play.
The CD played back from track 1 through and including track 12 without any problems.
This leads me to believe I have a problem in my PS Audio DAC configuration or the Network Bridge in the DAC.
Does anyone have any advice or suggestions?
