It sometimes happens that music appears to be playing, but there is actually no sound. Pausing and resuming solves the problem.
So far, it has happened to me after seeking or skipping directories.

Last spotted on an iPod 5.5G 80GB with r17900
This task depends upon

Yeah, happens to me too but I just never bother to look into these anymore given a particular bug usually involves multiple paths to perform the same function in slightly different ways. No...I'm not bitter. ::)</bitter>

Same here on Gigabeat although I can't really find a way to reproduce the bug.

I can confirm that this happens regularly (maybe 100% of the time)? on my iPod 5.5G / 80G. Just installed the latest build as of today (r18391) and have had the problem at least since the last build I installed (late April 2008).

I play a music track (MP3), then I hit the fast forward button short+long to advance to the next directory. It then appears to start playing the correct track, but no sound comes out unless I hit pause twice to pause and resume.

I can also confirm that on older builds dir-skip would sometimes hard-lock the iPod requiring a reset. This happened maybe every 10 times I did it? I'm not sure if this is still there; it may have gotten fixed. I know that dir-skip used to work at least some of the time, but now it doesn't seem to work at all without the no-audio problem.

I don't get the no audio issue, but dir skip seems flaky in two other ways:
- The (default) WPS takes ages to refresh when album art is in use, and displays junk sometimes for a while such as playback time of 76867834:87.
- Fast forward sometimes fails to work shortly after a dir skip
I'm using skip to random directory if that's relevant.

As well as silence I still get occasional hardlocks - last was in the mpa codec, arm7tdmi/libgcc.a, function __udivsi3

chiming in here to confirm this is 100% reproducible with version 3.0 on 5.5G/80Gb Ipod. i just start an album playing, with random next directory (not sure if this is necessary), then click and click-hold the right button to skip the album. the next album comes up and starts playing with no sound. only way to get sound back is to stop and start the song. very annoying.

e200 & r19391 - With auto-dir change set to random I can consistently produce a hardlock when skipping directories. Cannot reproduce if it's simply set to Yes.

still happens?
Comment by Andree Buschmann (Buschel) - Saturday, 20 February 2010, 09:41 GMT
Should be closed, as there was no update or failure report since >1 year. Any objections?

I agree. The bug seems to have been fixed, since it didn't appear on my target for a long time now.
