    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Enable WASAPI
    2. Enable Minidisplay plugin (I have type: soundgraph iMon usb vfd/lid plugin v29_11_2009)
    3. Go to advanced settings of Minidisplay plugin
    4. Under Equalizer options, tick 'use equalizer display'
    5. Start mediaportal and play a music file
    6. The music goes insane :)

    I use the iMon software version: 7.60.0521

    When you also enable: delay equalizer start by x seconds, the music will go insane after that amount of seconds.

    Can someone confirm?

    Hi,



    When I enable WASAPI and start a music file, it will start fine in the beginning. But after exactly 10 seconds, the music is going into some kind of fast forward mode. So the whole music gets played faster and is distorted. When I skip to the next track, it will play fine, but after 10 seconds it will happen again.

    This happens on my HTPC and NOT on my SERVER. My HTPC is connected with HDMI. Sound is coming from AMD 6570 video card. Also tried installing newer drivers, but that didn't fix my issue.

    Logs are attached. I played 3 tracks and then quit.

    I tested this also on my server, but on there I had no issue. My gpu in my server is a nvidia gt220.

    So only a issue on my HTPC (with a amd 6570 gpu).

    Maybe someone can test this with a amd gpu? And report which driver he/she is using.

    Thx

    Did a test with XBMC and WASAPI mode. In there it works perfectly. So I guess I can rule out the hardware or drivers.

    From what I can tell from the logs, there is no event after the 10 seconds when the problem starts. So what can I do to provide more information?

    I also ran into WASAPI problems. XBMC works fine, MP stutters. Funny thing: Foobar gave me the same problems and problems are also more prominent when my Network is more loaded (I have my Musicfiles on a separate server). Kind of defeats the purpose of the BurrBrown DACs in my amp :p

    Logs where checked some time ago, showed nothing funny. What's the diff between XBMC and MP in handling WASAPI?

    Do you have amd gpu like me? What driver are you using? Does it also happen after a certain amount of seconds?
