Yesterday I set up dual PC with JPLAY Femto on both PC's and HQPlayer on the control PC for PCM playback. I tried many settings in HQPlayer but for some reason, although it recognises JPLAY Femto, HQPlayer does not start when I hit Play. It just 'thinks' endlessly.

 

This same setup with Audirvana+ has no problems at all.

 

Any ideas what I could be doing wrong?

Thanks Marcin, I re-ran setup as Administrator on both PC's, but the problem is unchanged.

 

I was able to make music with

    HQPlayer on control PC => NAA on audio PC => JPLAY Femto on audio PC (DAC link 1.000Hz)

but with

    HQPlayer on control PC => JPLAY Femto on control PC => JPLAY Femto on audio PC (having tried several DAC links)

the music does not start.

same problem here currently - but i actually had it working OK for a couple days (simple PCM only upsampling)...

then all of a sudden, when pressing play in HQPlayer there is no audio processing taking place, very strange...

Please check if JPLAYmini plays using the same cfg in JPLAY Settings panel &/or JPLAY Driver via e.g. foobar. If it works then the problem is  in HQ player cfg

The same setup, with all other things equal but Audirvana+ instead of HQPLayer, does play well, so you could say that the problem is with HQPlayer.

 

However, is it that simple?

The setup with Windows has become quite complex, with media player, AO, FP, JPLAY Femto on control PC talking to JPLAY Femto on audio PC, and DAC.

It could be an incompatibility between two components.

 

If I don't like peanut butter, who's to blame? Me or the peanut butter?

Not me – because I do like marmalade.

And not the peanut butter – because others do like peanut butter.
