Hello, Could someone possibly confirm/deny whether gapless, bit perfect flac will ever be possible from Media Browser Theatre? I like the look of MB3 and where the theatre UI is headed, but this is a deal breaker for me. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell the answer is no, because... (1) Use of LAV filters for FLAC decoding precludes gapless? Or at least that's my experience using them for WMC (2) Use of DirectShow audio drivers (?) means (in Win 8 at least) the audio is subjected to Microsoft's limiter function (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/matthew_van_eerde/archive/2011/05/11/linearity-of-windows-volume-apis-iaudiometerinformation-and-full-scale-signals.aspx) What I am hoping is I am wrong with regards to (1) - which is impossible to confirm at the mo, because pressing playing on an audio track only plays one track :-) (2) - will there ever be the possibility of WASAPI exclusive mode (or indeed is that possible now?)?
