It’s a Gigabit network - Drobo is wired to Modem which is wired to OSMC. All I know is I experienced buffering issues with a previous Vero years ago that was solved the moment someone here suggested I use these settings in an advancedsettings.xml file. Years later, after upgrading to Vero4K+ and installing the latest update, my audio files stop and start to buffer, so I wondered if this was the cause.
Additionally, although unrelated to this ticket, one of my streaming radio stations at 128k also now buffers when previously they played perfectly and have done since I installed this update. Yet the other one @ 320k doesn’t. Go figure.
Thanks but although installing iPerf on my Vero was a piece of cake, doing that on my Drobo5N2 is too hard. Thanks anyway - I can almost bet that this problem will go away with future updates so I will wait for them.
Looks good, if that are stable values and even better to the Drobo then surely no buffer changes needed.
So suggest removing any buffer settings and then upload debug enabled logs when seeing the issue.
OK, it appears the issue I was having after the update was in the System Settings/Audio section where my audio was previously set to Best Match. After applying the Aug 21 update, a couple of incoming radio streams (WFMU and 3RRR) and NAS access to my WAV files started constantly buffering.
Interestingly, the radio stream with the highest bit rate (True Vinyl Alternative@ 320kbps) did not buffer at all after the update.
I changed this setting to Fixed and set the highest bit rate and now both streaming stations and WAV files not only play uninterrupted, they but actually sound better than what I used previously.
Sorry to have bothered you all with this - I never would have guessed this was the issue, but I hope it helps anyone else having similar issues…
