2G touch skips with lossless - bug has been fixed with firmware 2.2.1 - Page 5

post #61 of 78
Isn't another option just to turn off the power save? Doesn't that prevent the skipping at the expense of some reduced battery time?

My point was that Apple will never receive nearly as many complaints about this problem as any number of other requests and I doubt that you can raise it much on the priority list. So... just encode to a transparently-high lossy bitrate in the meantime and enjoy the unit..?

I really am not trying to be argumentative but I disagree that this is a trivial matter even for the masses or for Apple. I mean it is their codec. Its not like the calendar is not syncing. Its an ipod, which plays music, their music codec and it skips blatantly. Its no less glaring than advertising that it plays MP3 and then you find out it does not. Yes we are in a minority playing lossless- but we are hardly the only website bitching about it. At the very least you would think apple would just remove it from the supported codecs much like the Shuffle does not advertise the ability to play Apple Lossless. You can't sell a DAP that claims to play a type of music which doesn't actually do it. I mean class action lawsuits have been tried and won over far less trivial matters.

I would agree with you that it is not trivial, but I would argue that it's common place for new or relatively new products in this technologically-advanced age to have some type of deficiency that needs to be fixed by software upgrades, etc., and that these often persist for several months. One extreme example might be the POS operating system sold by that company called Microsoft. Many similar types of problems have been encountered with Blu-ray players, and before their demise, HD-DVD players. There are many other examples (see also the thread on the Zune 12/31 problem).

The problem definitely needs to be fixed, but I think it's ridiculous for some (I'm not accusing you) of acting like apple is the anti-Christ or a bad company because they have fixed the problem yet. I think that's the point I was more or less trying to make in my previous post.

hopefully this is fixed in the Nano too, I have one coming in tomorrow and would like to have the option of some skip free Lossless from time to time. But I remember this being a problem with songs actually being skipped completely, is that right? For me its just a little hickup within a second of a song starting sometimes. Almost as annoying as not having gapless playback, man I hated that back in the day!

New firmware released today. Ver 2.2.1. I have not noticed any skipping so I cannot tell you if it is fixed.

No, obviously it wasn't a world-ending problem, however battery longevity with the screen now off is much better, and as such I no longer need to constantly fiddle with screen and wireless settings to allow reasonable battery life. That WAS mildly annoying. Thanks (finally) Apple!

Like all the other stuff we discuss is earth shattering.

No skips with the new firmware 2.2.1.
post #72 of 78
great to hear, I had finally come to terms with the thought I would have to return my loved touch... one last search only to find this
post #73 of 78
yes I can confirm the problem is fixed, I used to have skips every minute or so on lossless (mine is 32gig), after loading the new 2.2.1, problem is gone. now I finally can use it as my main source.

The Earth is on its Axis again; God is in his heaven; I'm listening to my iPod Touch 2g without skipping.
