Re: Transient missing spots events may require WD server CPU upgrade
I noticed last year that my decode cycles were pushing the Pi's limits. Your mileage may vary, and it certainly will void any warranty, but overclocking the Pi4 is also a possibility.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I experimented with that option and, on my example at least, I could dial in a ~12-14% clock speed boost stably (IIRC). This did shorten the decoding cycle.
Any higher clock rate, again on my particular Pi, and it started behaving erratically.

This kind of problem has been reported by others in the Wednesday WD Zoom call and fixed by upgrading to a more powerful CPU than the ARM on the Pi4. It appears that with the summer months and increasing sunspot cycle, the Pi CPUs can't keep up decoding the number of spots in the wav file captures. However it is hard to observe those 'out of CPU' events.
