Not sure if it's the same, but I've also had a few completely disappear after pausing them.

I haven't updated yet (just got done watching the VP debate). I'm surprised there is no word about the AirTunes issues. I thought that was affecting a lot of people.

Working great for me. I think 8.0.1 feels more responsive than 8.0.

No troubles here. Make sure that you have IPv6 enabled and allow your firewall to except all incoming connections from iTunes. Don't have it blocked. I would also make sure that your firmware is up to date.

after a quick hunt around this would appear to be an inherited issue from the last Security Update - iPV6 is enabled to configure automatically and although the firewall is set to accept connections from iTunes, AirTunes works fine as long as I turn my Firewall off. odd.

Your guess is as good as mine man. I have both of mine set to Link-local only mode. I had a new problem pop up two nights ago. AirTunes is buffering like a mother now. It takes like 15-20 seconds when starting a song or coming back from a pause. This normally takes like 2-3 seconds tops. I'm going to try resetting some things later. Are you having any trouble this way?

yes, I have noticed a bit of a drag when tracks start and also some drop-out-like activity where it seems to skip forward a couple of mili-seconds in playback.

now, i love my vinyl as much as the next man but there are limits Wink
