We have been doing some tests… Looks like it may be a weird WIFI related event.
We can only get this to happen when DPS is running –
Playing long/large Apple Lossless or MP3. Music ‘dips out’ for approx. half a second after 20 minutes or so. Can be 20 minutes into a long track or after 20 minutes(ish) of shorter tracks. It does seem to be on a ‘regular’ basis.
Also, when the refrigerator pump starts, central heating thermostat trips or certain light switches are used, the music ‘dips out’ for a longer period. Maybe a second. So, maybe it’s a WIFI interference thing.
Doesn’t happen when DPS is turned off.
I can’t see what the relationship would be between DPS and WIFI. However, I do control the Mac using Remote on an iPad. Could this be a clue?
BTW – do you know this form is not very iPad compatible?
