Music just stops playing

Hi,

I just finished my 30 day trial, and purchased my license.
Now Music seems to stop playing at random. Both local files and also from TIDAL.

I see posts with similar problems dating back to 2019 with any solutions?

So now i feel as if i threw my license money right out the window.

Has anybody been able to resolve this?

I’m having the same problem as of this morning (via USB, optical seems to be fine) impacts both streaming and locally played files. Files mute at the 2:05 mark exactly, I already sent my debug info to Damien but it might help if we both post ours here in case anyone else has any suggestions.

I’m still using v1.5.12 and I’ve experienced the exact same problem since last week 14th March.
Till then I’d been using V1.5 for several years just fine and since last week the player stops playing sometimes after just 2’’ and sometimes after a few minutes. It happens whatever the location of the file played (NAS or local drive) and whatever USB DAC is connected (I’ve tried 3 different DAC and the integrated loudspeakers with the same result).

Regards,
Eric.
