Re: Downloading album art

A few years ago, Amazon appears to have changed things on their side, and Max is no longer able to do this. I wouldn't mind too much, except there is no work around. Even if I have the artwork locally, I cannot add it into the ripping process.

Re: File permission error? (mp3 encoding)

Still appears to be a problem on the itunes side. The "delay" argument doesn't solve it any longer. Just disabling the auto import (of course) solves it. But then you have to manually tell itunes about the new songs, even if they were imported into the itunes hierarchy (Mountain Lion, 8.1 patch).

Re: decibel stops playing after a few seconds

Right, the track is longer than 49 seconds :-) It's a Xiang Sheng dac -- but really, the USB dac piece of it is a C-Media usb dac. Here is what System Info on the Mac says: USB Audio: Default Output Device: Yes Default System Output Device: Yes Manufacturer: C-Media INC. Output Channels: 2 Current S...

Ok, looks like it was running. Here is what I see via Console: Aug 24 22:20:38 ncomp.local Decibel[2182] <Debug>: Opening log Aug 24 22:20:38 ncomp.local Decibel[2182] <Debug>: Opening output for device 0x39 Aug 24 22:20:38 ncomp.local Decibel[2182] <Info>: Opening output for device 0x39 (USB Audio)...

Re: decibel stops playing after a few seconds

Thanks for the tips. Turns out I was doing it right....

Should there be any feedback when typing it in? I get none. Just type in the first list, hit return, not problem. Same with the second. Then exit out of terminal.

Re: decibel stops playing after a few seconds

Running out of time on my trial, but no luck yet.

Went into terminal again, entered the details from this thread

http://forums.sbooth.org/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=5055

and played another song from my music server -- and Decibel froze around the 14 second mark, as usual.

No log was created.

~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/

I must be doing something wrong in Terminal because I don't get the log file you are referring to. I'm not familiar with Terminal.

Re: decibel stops playing after a few seconds

Just the default OS drivers. That should be safest right?

Re: decibel stops playing after a few seconds

Most interesting. Yes, the internal speaker on the Mini works okay.

I guess maybe my USB dac is doing something weird?

decibel stops playing after a few seconds

I'm using an external USB DAC (shows up as C Media). For some reason, after playing a handful of seconds of a 16bit 4.1khz flac file, Decibel stops dead. Looking at the console app, I see things like: 8/14/12 8:24:52.823 PM WindowServer[1988]: CGXDisableUpdate: UI updates were forcibly disabled by a...
