My system is nowdays playing music ok but I still feel the Controllers are generally unresponsive and slow in many ways. This is especially prominent when I play local music files (flac).
- Slow or extremely slow loading of artwork, sometimes artwork will never load for some tracks. But then next time it will load so no actual problem with the file.
- On iOS if the Controller has been inactive for a while it will usually not respond first 5-10 seconds, also in this case artwork will reload, slowly.
- If I pick up a iPad/iPhone with Controller running it will practically never show what I'm playing. It will show the wrong text, the wrong position and the wrong artwork. I will have to wait a ridiculous amount of time until it's correct. The problem exists on Laptop too but not so much as on iOS.
- Very often on iOS the Controller will restart automatically when unit has been unused for a while. And after that restart it will take yet some time for correct artwork and controls to show. Very strange and annoying behaviour.
In general streaming services are a bit more responsive in the Controller. But compared to other apps it's still quite slow.
If I play a local file some other way, like an app on my Laptop the artwork and responsiveness is absolutely perfect so there's nothing wrong with my general file system; wireless AP Extreme router with USB-harddrive.
Is there anything I can do about these problems? Seems to me there's not but maybe I'm wrong. Hope so.
System is 2 Play:1, Three ZP90. A mix of iPhone, iPad and Desktop Controller. I tried both Sonos Net and Wifi mode and see no difference in preformance.
Also I can stream Apple TV with zero problems all the time so there's nothing wrong in general with my wifi.
