WMA disconnects with both 4.4.3.1 and 4.4.4 RC3

Howdy,

I've tried both 4.4.3.1 and 4.4.4 RC3 under XP, and with both playing back WMAs to a PS3 usually results in playback stopping after roughly 30 seconds (30-34 usually). I can play back MP3's fine, AVI video's fine, just WMA audio files seem to cause this problem. In 4.4.3.1 it it was on every single WMA; in 4.4.4RC3, I can usually get through one file fine, but the next one playback stops after 30 seconds.

Note that I really mean playback just stops; I go back to the track list. I don't get disconnected from the media server or anything, I can pick a song and play it again right away just fine.

Any ideas? Everything is connected via a wired connection, ps3 and host with twonky are talking to eachother through an ethernet switch.

Ah, this seems to be a PS3 problem, at least from what I've read. Ugh.

could be the platform specific twonky itself, because twonky on my maxtor shared plus has no problem that you have described (all my wma play well under 4.4.x)

but 4.4.4.RC3 is flaky for video streaming, jerky avi playback, distorted playback for dvd files, so I'm back to 4.4.3.1. Both 4.4.3.1 and 4.4.4.RC3 still has broken album art images, but I don't seem to see Twonky acknowledges this... :(
