    rhythmbox issues ???

    rhythmbox is giving me fits...

    it's great while listening to the radio, but it has a problem or 2...

    first---it plays fine for maybe 15 minutes then starts shutting down and buffering... at that point it will then play again for a short time of abt 1 minute and then buffer again or just sit there and do nothing...

    also---for some reason the volume stays constant even when i raise or lower it...

    any ideas ???

    thanks...

    sure, you could remove rhythmbox and install Amarok instead.

    update:

    i tried rhythmbox again and sure enough it went silent after only a minute or so... i was distracted and doing something else and it seemed like a long time (abt 5 minutes) it came back on and has been working for an hour or so perfectly ???

    now if i could find a reason the volume wont adjust i could tag this thread solved...

    thanks...

    yeah, the reason is that i've found Amarok much better at dealing with network protocols than banshee (which will not ever play across a LAN, e.g. from a shared music folder) and i find the GUI much more intuitive than rhythmbox.

    i am new to pc's/9.04 and since r box came pretty much as a default i decided to get it working and in the future as my skill level increases maybe play around then...

    i will have this thread to refer back to later after i learn more just by searching my threads... at that point i can decide to try some of these suggestions...

    thanks...
