Sudden stop of playback: could be unwanted activation of Time Machine

Dear all,

I experienced several times the same issue: a sudden stop of playback (Which is painful when you enjoy the music and are hit by such a sudden interruption…). Each time (At least 3 times) I noticed that Time Machine was activated and a backup was initiated.
That is strange as normally, according to my setup, Time Machine shall be deactivated when Playback is running.
Anybody else experienced the same issue?

3 new sudden stops of playback occurred:
-1 without a clear cause (Not time Machine this time)
-2 Then another case (Followed a few minutes later by the very same one) where Audirvana crashed with a SEGV signal as reported in the log below.
I restarted the Mac Mini and will see…

REbooted Mac Mini but to no avail. Audirvana crashed each time the remote tries to reconnect.

Restarted the Remote, let’s see if it works.

I hate SW!!

Restarting the Remote seems to solve the problem.
So, now, before playing, I will restart both Audirvana and the Remote.

Sometimes it is required to restart Audirvana as the network volume (SMB mount) is disconnect for reasons beyond my control, and Audirvana does not report any error and tries to load tracks from that volume.

Hello @patifr,

Can you send us your complete crash report at so we can take a look at it?

Hello Damien,
I sent the crash report to the support.
