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 application "Decibel" for over 1.00 seconds. Server has re-enabled them.

8/14/12 8:24:53.558 PM WindowServer[1988]: reenable_update_for_connection: UI updates were finally reenabled by application "Decibel" after 1.74 seconds (server forcibly re-enabled them after 1.00 seconds)

I am pretty sure this is something funky with my install or config of Mountain Lion?

I have never seen those error messages before, but Decibel's playback and UI are separated so even if the UI was blocked the audio should continue. As a test, if you use the internal audio on your Mac does Decibel work correctly?

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

I guess maybe my USB dac is doing something weird?

It's possible, but difficult to say for certain. Does your DAC use the standard Apple drivers or does it have its own?

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

Yes. Most of the problems I've seen similar to yours are related to custom drivers that are not quite right- but if you're using the standard Apple USB driver the problem is obviously something else.

Would you be able to enable logging and post the result? The process is outlined in http://forums.sbooth.org/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=5055

That looks like a hang log generated by crash reporter. Is that what was contained in ~/Library/Logs/Decibel.log?

~/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.

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.

You wrote that you are not familiar with using Terminal. Maybe you are doing something wrong.

Open Terminal and type (or paste) at the prompt:

Code: Select all

defaults write org.sbooth.Decibel EnableLogging -bool YES
and hit Return

Then type or paste:

Code: Select all

defaults write org.sbooth.Decibel LogLevel -int 5
and hit Return

I do not know how detailed the log needs to be for this issue. For maximum details you could use "7" instead of "5":

Type or paste:

Code: Select all

defaults write org.sbooth.Decibel LogLevel -int 7
and hit Return

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.

One way to determine if logging is enabled is by running Console (in the Utilities folder) and looking for entries starting with Decibel. Also, Console will list all the logs in the various locations on your disk.

Ok, looks like it was running. Here is what I see via Console:

I don't see anything that stands out as unusual in that log. I assume the track Poor Little Rich Boy is longer than 49 seconds? The log indicates that it started playing normally and then the player stopped 49 seconds later before the track was actually completed. I think this is basically what you've already said!

What kind of a DAC are you using? I'm not sure that I'll be able to get to the bottom of this using just the logs.
