Playlist won't skip to next track

While playing Tidal playlist and pressing “next track” button it just starts playing same track from the beginning but speaker icon moves to the next one on the list , same happens if I chose play icon of different track on the playlist , quite often freezes Linn DS and I have to reboot the player. No problems when I leave it alone , it moves from one track when finishes playing to next one on the playlist .

I missed up terminology a bit , obviously all above happens within the play queue
Another issue , is there a way to add another playlist to the play queue while playing , it seems I need to stop playback to do so

Hello @mac,

can you make some screenshot so we can better help you?

here is what happens , after I add one of the Tidal created playlists everything seems to be fine I press “play all” and Audirvana starts with first track :

Then I press skip to next track arrow on the bottom of the screen and Audirvana shows that next track is playing :

but as could be seen on next image my Linn Akurate DS started playing first track again as shown in Linn App , Audirvana shows playing second track:

now if I let this track to finish , second track is repeated one more time

if I press skip to next track again ,same thing happens , it means plays same track again or sometimes freezes and I have to reboot streamer , sometimes randomly goes from one track to another then freezes and I have white noise from speakers:

I have allocated around 3GB for tracks preload

Do you have a display on your Linn to see the track currently playing?

Yes , it matches with Linn App and sound from the speakers

If you don’t have the Linn App opened, does it display the proper track being played?

It’s exactly the same and if I press “skip to next track” couple times DS freezes and needs rebooting ,
I haven’t mentioned one thing , my laptop is not hardwired to the network but uses 5G wifi , probably not something you want to hear but it works with Roon with no problem .
Probably I give it a miss for a time being and try again when I get a NUC ,

Hi Damien, I have the same issues with my linn streamers. Any ideas? Regards Richarf

Hello @Richard1 When you let the gapless do the work it works as it should but if you press Next button it doesn’t work properly?

No. I tried to listen without doing anything, after maybe 5 minutes it freezes. I had to turn the he power off of my klimax each time to start it again. Same with changing the songs, the album or using next button.
