Rhapsody dropouts on SqueezeBox


.
I am getting constant dropouts when streaming on Rhapsody on my Squeezebox. I also run Pandora and get no dropouts whatsoever. Anyone else had this problem and solved it? I've run it wireless and with ethernet, both give me the annoying dropouts.

I've had the problem occasionally. I assume it's my internet carrier, since I also have a problem sometimes going from site to site on the internet when it times out. In fact, it's more of a problem on the internet since, I believe, the Squeezebox has a buffer.
Rhapsody has been very intermittent for the last couple of months. Some days it will play for hours with no problems. Other days it will stop every couple of songs. Usually when this happens I just skip to the next track and most times it starts playing again. However, there are some days that I can't access Rhapsody at all. Lately, most of my casual background listening has been on Pandora. I've experienced this Rhapsody problem on multiple Squeezeboxes and Sonos units at multiple locations with multiple internet providers.
I have a Squeezebox touch with wireless connection through an Airport Extreme. Connection rate remains consistently above 63%. NO DROPOUTS using Rhapsody or any other services. Internet connection is a 3 mbps.

You might want to check your internet connection speed and the percentage transmission connection on the squeezebox. Rhapsody is a higher band transmission than Pandora (192 kbps vs 126 kbps).

Winger, I have run Rhapsody for three years with no problems until recently. I checked my internet speed and all is well. Also, I stream internet radio stations at 192 kbps and have no problem there either. When I stream movies from NetFlix I don't get dropouts. I tried removing the router and run it straight from the modem via ethernet....still dropouts. I've posted the problem on the Rhapsody public forum.

By the way, I have the SqueezeBox 3, I do not have the SqueezeBox Touch.

Nitch4t,

Same experience here.
.
I got several responses on the Rhapsody public forum with several users having the same problem. No real consistent fix has been found for it yet.

I turned it off for a few days because it was un-listenable....I turned it back on today and all is well and it sounds as good as new.
