    Try turning off settings one at a time:
    • Gapless playback
    • Fade in / Fade out
    • Replay gain
    I can’t find it, but it seems to me which of these settings is not supported normally in WASAPI mode.

    With the following steps I can reproduce the issue:
    1. Enable WASAPI
    2. Add the previously attached track and another track to the playlist and play it
    3. Wait for the first track to end
    That worked ok for me too, see attached screenshot, at the end of the first track the Bon Jovi track played to end.

    Yes that is interesting.. If Fade in / Fade out is enabled and you then set Gapless playback, the Fade in / Fade out is disabled automatically (like it is either or) but it is then possible to re-enable Fade in / Fade out so not sure.:unsure:

    Now I had the same error with another audio file (see attached file), although all mixing options were disabled:

    Although Fade-in / Fade-out is disabled, MediaPortal fades in and fades out when I skip to the next track.

    It looks like MediaPortal ignores the setting:
    <entry name="crossfade">4003</entry>
    <entry name="buffering">10</entry>
    <entry name="useSkipSteps">no</entry>
    <entry name="fadeOnStartStop">no</entry>
    <entry name="gaplessPlayback">no</entry>
    <entry name="enableReplayGain">no</entry>
    <entry name="enableAlbumReplayGain">no</entry>
    <entry name="streamOutputLevel">80</entry>
    <entry name="asiobalance">0</entry>
    <entry name="wasapiExclusive">no</entry>
    <entry name="upMixMono">0</entry>
    <entry name="upMixStereo">0</entry>
    <entry name="upMixQuadro">0</entry>
    <entry name="upMixFiveDotOne">0</entry>
    <entry name="enableResume">no</entry>
    <entry name="resumeAfter">10</entry>
    <entry name="resumeSelect">
    </entry>

    Setting Buffering to low or max levels doesn't help.

    If I set the Cross-fading value to 0 there's no fading on track skip but the error remains nevertheless.

    The "Fade-in on start / fade-out on stop" option takes no effect at all, also in normal BASS mode. Regardless if enabled or disabled, the volume always fades in at start but never fades out on stop.

    "GCHandle of Musicstream not found in Dictionary -2147483346 The key was not specified in the directory." What does that mean? What's GCHandle?

    I still have the suspicion that there's a dependency between WASAPI mode, the Fade-in/out option and/or the cross-fading option.
    Can we do a test and completely disable these options in the code?

    Ok I could solve my problem by myself. The logs said that the delimiter of that song is not in text form. Although it was already in text form and I deleted the music database, the title information was still not available. I ripped the song again and now it works. I think that something went wrong the first time.

    I should probably add, it does the same thing with all audio files I've tried, FLAC and MP3. I've also tried updating my drivers but no luck

    this seems to be related to the Ares skin. It can be somewhat fixed by replacing the mytvrecordedtv.xml with the one found in the DefaultWide skin. It really messes up the overlays though.
