Help with a test on M5000 required

Post by dp11 » Mon Mar 16, 2020 12:11 am

Could some kind person with a real M5000 do a quick test for me?

Start M5000 playing music. Then do *dump large file e.g. *dump anhf

Does the music stop play a little way into the file?

Yes this is normal. It only generally does it for me with a more complex piece of music. I'm not sure if its some sort of bug in interrupt handling or something is just being maxed out and cant cope. I keep meaning to investigate.

Thanks very much for confirming. I suspect it is some sort of bug/ race condition
