Stop and go when streaming via Chromecast

I couldn’t correctly stream 24b/96kHz tracks to my Naim Uniti using Chromecast whereas I have no problem with UPNP on the same device : music just stops and go, as if the network throughput was insufficient, which is not case, I can stream up to 24/352 on the same device. I have no other devices supporting Chromecast to do other tests.

Hello @al1h,

Can you send us a copy of the “Debug Info” when you have this issue? You can get it in Audirvana Settings>My account

Note: By clicking on the Debug Info button, Audirvana automatically copies all its content, all you have to do is paste it in response to this message

With Chromecast, music plays a few seconds, then plays again, and so on…

to be precise, with UPNP, I can stream only up to 192 kHz or DSD 128, because my NAIM Uniti Atom does not support higher rates, which are down-sampled by Audirvana Studio
