Thanks Halle, but unfortunately this didn’t have any effect.
I replaced the code as instructed, rebuilt and tested, but the result was the same.
What’s a little odd is that it works initially so that leads me to believe that the initial setup is correct or on the right track. It’s after pausing during the recognition state where it usually doesn’t come back (I get the inf values in getDecibels).
As soon as Apple gets iOS 8.0.1 figured out I’ll test on 8.0.1 to see if the issue persists.
