Fwiw I use Poly for just this purpose (checking WAVs of mixes) but I use M.A.L.P (mpd based). It works great - all apart from the tiresome wait for reindexing the card. A suggestion would be to have a separate small "scratch" SD to use just for quickly checking stuff as otherwise the wait is interminable. I know that's not connected to your scrubbing issue in bubble however - just a friendly thought!

Can we get an update on Google Casting? Is it dead in the water?

Anybody know which data Poly uses while in AirPlay mode, when away from your home WiFi network; hotspot or LTE data? I check my Verizon wireless Unlimited data plan daily, but I don’t see any hotspot usage, just LTE data. My hotspot is limited to 20 GB’s per month, so I’m guessing it’s just using my unlimited LTE data plan while in hotspot/AirPlay mode. Dunno.

I discovered something this morning that may help anyone having battery/charging problems. Having invested in a decent 2.6A charger I was annoyed to see that both Poly and Mojo lights were still not white-charging at the same time and one would flash.

A change of USB cable and now they are both solid white. Apparently USB cables are amp rated!

This may be old news to some but hey at least I know my Polly’s ok!

Hi @phurly Let me investigate why this is happening. I can also see the same behaviour but only with WAV files.

@Matt Bartlett I discovered that FLAC is the way to go when exporting songs from a DAW. I'm able to jump around within a song and Poly doesn't restart the tune or skip to the next like it does with WAV. Plus artist name, album title and song titles also show up in the MPD. Stoked!

If I use mconnect and use my Tidal account inside mconnect, it for example tells me that the music is played at 48khz @ 24-bit.

However Airplay is limited to 44khz @ 16-bit I believe. So what sound quality am I getting with the Chord Poly?

You should be getting 24/48k. What color is the sample rate ball?

Similar experiences were reported on the Mojo thread.
Not all USB cables comply with the USB standard - some contain wires with too high a resistance, causing the charging current to drop below the required level.
Changing the cable usually remedied the situation.

Thanks for letting me know. Yes everything is ok with FLAC and other formats. We are still investigating WAV as it works with some players but not with others.

Hi All.... what’s your favoured iOS app for controlling your Poly?

I find Glider cumbersome and confusing.... (use MPD or Poly as server?... keeps Re-syncing) and 8player destroys gapless albums..

Lesser of two evils!

Rigelian - very simple, good to play from SDcard
mconnect - to stream
