  1. HQP -> NAA protocol is proprietary so nothing except HQP can stream to NAA. Without HQP, Stylus can stream to StylusEP (but then you also need Euphony OS on endpoint machine) or to UPnP (endpoint OS choice is yours). You can also choose Euphony OS only for endpoint and run StylusEP (which emulates Squeezebox endpoint) , NAA, Squeezelite itself, HQPlayer embedded, RoonBridge or Airplay server - with appropriate server/control applications.
  2. I'll admit that I never looked at any network driver or NIC firmware implementation but I found all your premises suspect: 1) Disabling the network stack surely doesn't 'shutdown' the card (whatever "shutdown" should mean...) 2) If the network were completely shutdown why would it be constantly checking anything? 3) Why would the card check if the cable is there - what is there to check? I would rather assume that connecting the cable triggers the activity in the card's firmware. 4) Even if the NIC would constantly check if the cable is there, why would this create "network activity"?
  3. It stands to reason that no physical connection is better than only a disabled network adapter. So for maximum effect you should also try disconnecting the cable after starting "Play and disconnect" (not sure how Euphony handles disconnecting the cable otherwise - if the network is in an active state...).
  4. In my experience repeat has no influence on reconnection. It is just that current position in queue has no influence on suggested disconnect time calculation - it is always the total length of the queue.
  5. You should contact support with the exact model of the LAN network card. Some 2.5GB cards are known to not work with Euphony - don't remember which ones.
  6. As per many reports, JCAT NET XE works in Euphony. JCAT USB XE is the one with mixed reports - it works for some, for others doesn't - depending on mobo.
  7. There is an article about CPU isolation in the support system knowledge base. This should get you started.
  8. You should contact support and open a ticket - you will at least get accurate answers and probably faster too..
  9. If "gstp 3-5 stylus 6-7" is your exact isolation string then you are missing the default isolation that should be in the first place. Correct string would be "0-2 gstp 3-5 stylus 6-7"
  10. It works. Those numbers are cumulative. As numbers on new assignments rise, numbers on old assignments should stay the same. Leave it running with new assignments for a longer period and it should be obvious.
  11. Apparently, this was resolved for at least one user (by direct intervention over remote connection). I advise contacting support if you have the same issue.
  12. Has anyone tried comparing 1) USB IRQ on the same core as gstp vs 2) USB IRQ on a dedicated core - not the core reserved also for gstp or anything else I cannot really tell the difference but my current system is not extremely resolving right now....
  13. Several new articles about Expert Settings appeared in Euphony Knowledge-base: https://euphony-audio.com/hesk/knowledgebase.php?category=8 There is a new thing for cpu isolation: irq isolation - maybe worth checking out..
  14. HQPlayer does its own isolation so Jussi recommends not to mess with it. And since there is no way to exempt HQPlayer when using Euphony CPU isolation it is maybe better not to use Euphony isolation at all when playing through HQPlayer. To explain the screenshot: CPU0 probably has a USB IRQ handler on it and since your output is DSD256 it has a lot of data going through it.,, CPU4 is obviously HQPlayer upsampling from DSD128 to DSD256.
  15. There is a difference. It can be seen from this article: https://euphony-audio.com/hesk/knowledgebase.php?article=18 that online songs are buffered/downloaded during playback while local songs are fully buffered before playback. Not to mention that some people hear the difference between songs that are played after some network activity (even buffering from NAS) and songs played without recent network activity (buffering from locally attached storage).
