SLACKER freezes on Squeezebox Touch

BUT, Pandora does NOT freeze when I connect through the Logitech Media Server.
I am running two duets and a squeezebox. Using Logitech Media Server did not solve the problem for me.I'd hate to be the engineers chasing this problem. When the failure is once every long time, getting a picture of can be a problem. Even if you are running a number of devices.

Having same issue -- feel a little better that it is a Pandora problem and not a Logitech issue. Was going to go through all the steps to reset, etc. but now we will wait for help. Thanks for posting and monitoring everyone.

I too have been having this problem. It started roughly two weeks ago.
Squeezebox Touch and squeezebox Radio, at different locations (one at home, one at work.) Both radios randomly pause on Pandora and Slacker. I would say the average time would be around 45 minutes, but that is an average. Sometimes it's a lot longer between pauses (yay!) sometimes it's a lot shorter.
Tonight Slacker was being really nasty - for three songs in a row, it paused at the end and made me re-start. It's been my experience that I simply need to hit the "back" button and then return to the station in question, and that solves the problem, at least until the next unexpected pause. Like others here, my radio just stops and goes into the "paused" mode. Pandora pauses both on regular stations and QuickMix. I have seen "PANDORA_" on occasion.
Neither radio is connected to the Squeezebox server. Both have very good internet connections (Verizon FIOS.)
I sure hope they fix this soon!

I'm able to hit the play button twice on my boom to continue listening on the same station. The problem is definitely related to retrieving the next song since it doesn't pause in the middle of one.

I am having the same problem with my Duet and Pandora. Stops anywhere from 1 song to 1 hour or more. I also noticed that an internet radio would pause briefly but then resume playing without any action on my part. Glad I found this thread and hopeful that this will be resolved soon.

Ed1000, a couple of posts back was a workaround for that. Press and hold the play button for like a second. You'll hear a little click. Then press it again as if it was paused. The Touch gets the feed back. It's not like a true fix, but it's better that going back to the home screen and re-starting a pandora or slacker session. I have a trouble-ticket open and at least they're talking to me and saying they're working on it. Good luck.

Don't you think?
