I just setup my first dual-PC system using JPlay Classic 7.0A.
I have a FEMTO license but Classic seemed the better fit for a HQPlayer/JPlay dual PC idea.
I need to upsample everything to PCM 384 K due to some current incompatibility between my DDC and DAC, and had this system running fine on the (now) control PC as a single PC using an older version of HQPlayer with JPlay Classic 7.0A and Server 2012/AO/core. (Was sounding fantastic, but hibernate was not possible)
But now with the dual PC, HQPlayer just freezes. I uninstalled and reinstalled HQPlayer and same result (I checked to make sure output is set to JPlay) .
JPlay Mini plays fine, but I definitely need some good upsampling filters to force to PCM 384 and HQPlayer has a filter/dither setting (sync/NS4) that worked fantastic.
Currently (for setup test) the Control PC is 2012 Server GUI (Asus B150M-PLUS / i7) and Audio PC is 2019 Server GUI (Supermicro X10SBA-L). Fanless, linear power supplies, JCAT USB card, etc.
I like the way that HQPlayer can be worked with TotalCommander via drag and drop from a preset split screen, so the preference would be to get HQPlayer working with this new dual PC if at all possible. (I do not need to see cover art.. I actually unplug the monitor at playback anyways..)
I would like to keep the (upsampling) Control PC with Server 2012 if possible....
But if this would prove to be unstable, then I guess I may need change the control PC to WIN10...
Any suggestions or relevant experience, especially with HQPlayer in dual-PC setup would be greatly appreciated.. (I was just thinking, maybe AO is required for HQPlayer to work in Server GUI mode, but I never remember anything mentioned similar to that idea....)
