First to Hiccup.
So you don't feel the need for a working DLNA solution. Can I ask you then what are you playing your library to? PC speakers, mobile phone? If it isn't to any HIFI device then I can understand why you are not bothered.
I read your post regarding Tuneblade and am now trialing it. My problem with gapless playback has been solved, but there are settings etc. that need to be done when swapping between apps. So far seems promising, thanks for the heads up.
