Hi together,

first of all thanks for the great work and progress made on the mediaportal development. It's getting better and better and it's really fun using it. But since Version 1.xxx I constantly get this "unable to play" error on music when the system comes from hibernation and the last action before was listening to music.

So here is the case I am talking about:

1) listen music
2) stop music
3) set system to hibernate (not sure if it occurs with StandBy too)
4) restart system
5) try to start music playing --> "unable to play"

This happens with BassEngine and the internal engine as well. The workaround is to restart MP or to start LiveTV. From a programmers point of view I think the sound device is not as proper reinitialized from the music part as the video/tv part does.

Does anyone have the same error and maybe a better workaround or a different setting to get rid of it ?

Attached the error lines from the log. Of course I can provide the whole log if needed.
