Guys i need help.. I'm starting a new thread because my old one didn't gain any traction.
The crossfade function doesn't always work correctly on all players. All my players are grouped together, but instead of a unified crossfade, i get a 10 second silent gap on some players while the others crossfade correctly. Over the past year I have moved players around the house, some are wired and some are wireless, so it's not related to any one particular player. This happens whether I'm streaming iheartradio or Pandora, or playing mp3s off my NAS. I use the Sonos mesh network, not wifi for connectivity. I have a play1, 2 play3s, a Connect, a Connect:Amp and a Bridge. The very first time i saw the problem a year ago it was happening on a wired unit while everything else was wireless, but now it's happening on 2 wireless units which are 'between' wired units. Other than this one problem, everything works absolutely perfect so I don't really feel this is due to network issues. Every device on my network has a static or an assigned ip address to avoid any conflicts. This problem is very random, sometimes every few songs but then it's fine for a while.. I cannot see any pattern in source or configuration whatsoever. This is extremely annoying and ruining an otherwise perfect listening experience. I'd be happy to submit a diagnostic if nobody can figure it out, but I really need to get this working correctly somehow. Thanks guys!
Edit: I just noticed someone else recently reported the same issue.. https://en.community.sonos.com/troubleshooting-228999/play-1-cuts-at-the-end-the-songs-6748014
