Thread: Asset UPNP on Qnap Compatability Query - Streaming Dropouts

    Question Asset UPNP on Qnap Compatability Query - Streaming Dropouts

    Morning Guys

    Firstly thanks again for a fantastic product.

    Hope you can maybe assist with the below:

    I recently updated my Naim Unitilite to the latest firmware.
    Since then I started having dropouts when streaming from the NAS to the Hifi using Asset UPNP. It will play a bit and then stop for a few seconds then start playing again, but most of the time the stream stops completely and I have to press play again to start the stream, so much so that i find it unusable at present. All my devices are wired.

    I then logged into my QNAP and saw there was a new QTS Release available, so updated that firmware too - Made no Difference.
    I then checked Asset and realised R4.5 is available - Again Installed it with no difference in the dropouts.

    I did quite a few tests and found this only happens when streaming lossless (WAV, ALAC, FLAC) files (CD Quality only I don't have Hi-Res).
    MP3's have no issue.
    Asset was configured to convert FLAC to WAV on the fly but I turned this off with no difference in the result either.

    I put it down to the Naim Update and have contacted their support for further investigation. I am wondering though if their update may have opened some compatibility issues with the way Qnap handles UPNP or the UPNP software itself. I will also post this to QNAP Support as it seems at this point no matter what UPNP I use on the QNAP (Asset,Twonky, Multimedia Station) the same issue persist.

    I wanted to make you aware of this in the hope that you may be able to assist from a Asset UPNP angle too.

    Thanks in advance!

    If multiple UPnP servers cannot work then the issue is with the Naim.

    Thought as much, was just baffled however as UPnP Server works ok when Streaming MP3 to the Naim (instead of streaming lossless)
