I am using DLNA playback in an Onkyo AVR and see significant delays between tracks during playback. This happens when converting tracks (mostly FLAC) and applying volume leveling (although unchecking leveling seems to make no difference). I see the following:
Convert to MP3: Switches to the next track right away but takes ~7 seconds to start playback Convert to WAV: Takes ~45s to switch to next track and begin playback

I have the TX-NR709 and FLAC files play without problems when streaming the files without conversion. The problem is I have delays when I am converting as described above (I need to convert so I can have volume leveling).
I finally got around to trying this again with the new Beta. Here is the significant portion of the log where it took ~50s to move on to the second track (I don't see how to attach a file to the post):
Edit: I just submitted a support ticket with the full log instead as suggested by lowlander.

Hi, I analyzed the log and there doesn't seem to be a reason for the slowness. Based on the log you requested the file at 391 sedonds (line 00000219) and then immediatelly the file convesrion started and was served to Onkyo.
It looks definetly like an Onkyo issue, because e.g. at 411 seconds it requested only 1.5 MB out of 25 MB already converted as can be seen in the log.
The only reason I can imagine is a slow network trafic rate, but supposing it is a local network it shouldn't be a problem?
Yes, it is a local network so no speed problems there. I tried it with a different DLNA server that also converts to WAV with volume leveling and don't have this delay issue between tracks so apparently it is something peculiar with the Media Monkey/Onkyo interaction.
I tried the same thing with the JRMC DLNA server (converting to WAV with volume leveling) and there is no delay at all between tracks. I really wish this could be fixed in MediaMonkey since even if it is an Onkyo issue another server seems to have been able to solve it.
