Performance in FLAC files

Performance in FLAC files
For purposes of testing I have a database with only three albums. Two of them in FLAC format and an MP3.
I do a full scan to create a new one media.db.
Everything is normal when you hear the album in MP3, but when you try to play any of the albums in FLAC, the A300 system performance plummets, and it is absolutely impossible to do anything with it. Just reset it.
Anyone else happens .. or is it just me?

RE: Performance in FLAC files
can you post the MediaInfo data of the FLAC files?

http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/es/Download

if your comfortable with English then download that version please, not to many can read the Spanish report on the file.


PCH-A100/A210/C200/A400 500GB EXT3 HDD<-->HDMIv1.3<-->Onkyo TX-NR1010<-->HDMIv1.3<-->Panasonic TX-P46S10 + 6 Bowers & Wilkins speakers.
10 NTFS 2TB USB drives on 3 hubs attached to the A400, 2 Seagate blackarmour NAS 3TB, 2 Seagate Central NAS 4TB.


The inability to setup and configure the NMT should not be disguised as a defect of the box...

RE: Performance in FLAC files
Cant see anything wrong on this level.
Could your try an re-encode one flac file with Foobar and try to pay that, just to validate that they are encoded the right way..

RE: Performance in FLAC files
Yes, no problem.
I tried it with a new CD, and the result is the same.
It sounds, but the system plummets. In Jukebox mode (wall mode), nothing sounds... In file browser, comes to sound, but if you try to move through the folders, the movement is very very slow, until the system is falling down...

Media info of the files (ripped with foobar) :

RE: Performance in FLAC files
I have similar problem. NMJ immediately restarts when I try to play some FLAC albums. It seems that following tags prevents NMJ to start playing them:

Part : 1
Part/Total : 1
Track name/Total : 10

I used foobar2000 to remove these tags and NMJ can now, at least, start playing such file but then NMJ is very slow and it anyway crushes after a while.
