Anyone else having trouble with Asset? Here is my setup: Asset ver. 3beta (same issues with ver. 2.1) on a Windows 7 Pro box (single user setup). Commodo firewall software and D-Link router both set to allow full access from Oppo via UPnP. Computer and Oppo 83SE both connected to the router via wired connections. Computer and Oppo both on assigned IP addresses. The Oppo "sees" the Asset just fine. I have about 18,000 tracks in my audio folder. 99% are 16 bit flac with a small # of 24 bit flac and mp3 files. A large percentage of these files have no meta tags yet (downloaded concerts).
The browse issues I am experiencing are when I click on Artist, it kicks me out of everything completely (back to the screen where you select the server). When I click on Albums, it completely locks up and I have to turn the Oppo off and on again to get anything to work. If I click on Genre, I can then browse deeper in and successfully listen to 16 bit flac and mp3 files. So I know that playback works at least. I didn't have 'Folder & File Browsing' under Advanced Search and didn't add it since I read it was problematic. So I really need to be able to access tracks via the Artist link. Could this issue be due to the lack of tags on many of my files?
Second issue is when I attempt to play any of my 24 bit flac files, the files play but on top of the music I get pulses of loud static (white) noise about one second apart. The flac files are two channel files either at 48k or 96k. Any ideas as to what might be causing the extraneous noise?
Lastly, is there any trick to getting gapless track transitions when using Asset? Is this specific to Asset or do other programs such as Twonky do the same thing?
BTW, I am also experiencing the same issue with Asset that others have mentioned where the first track gets skipped when initiating playback.
