Here's a little problem I have on my AJR 20:

When I create the root.m3u playlist with over 3000 entries, the music playback stops after a while until the playlist is complete. Then it is continued. I think the problem is that the playback buffer is not filled during playlist creation.

A minor workaround could be: fill the buffer automatically when the user calls the playlist creation routine (especially for root.m3u).

But generally I think that the priorities should be changed, so that the playlist creation is interrupted by a playback buffer refill. :)
This task depends upon

Is this issue still valid? The new scheduler should make music the priority and this report was when the old scheduler was in use. Please try a current build.
