    John, thats quite an interesting issue. To be honest I'm really not sure if this is an RDP specific issue or perhaps an issue with the software you're running. However I think one easy workaround for all this may be to try and switch to using VNC  and see if it you still experience the same problem. My guess is VNC might play better.

    Let me know how it goes.

    I don't know for sure either (if it is a Jump! RDP issue or related to apps running on the Windows machine).  It does seem to vary in frequency of interruption based on the application running but is, pretty much, always a problem (and a very annoying one) with both Foobar2000 and the MOG client running in any browser.  I'm tied up with commitments right now but I'll load the VNC on the Windows machine although I hate adding anything to its configuration as it is a headless, keaboardless, mouseless micro-PC dedicated to music service for my home.  I will report back subsequently.

    John, one easy way to setup VNC is to use Jump's automatic setup. It requires a Gmail account but setup is very simple. Take a look at this on how to do this: http://jumpdesktop.com/go .

    I've done the VNC setup and am now giving it a test. I must admit I've made a "leap of faith" here in that I don't like automatic install scripts - maybe years of working for Microsoft have left me apprehensive ;-). Thanks for the promptness of you replies, John

    Thanks again for your responsive support. This (VNC) fixes the issue for my use case. I'm a happy customer. John

    Thanks John. Just curious: Have your tried RDP'ing into your machine using Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection from another machine? If so, what happens to the audio when you disconnect RDP?

    Thanks.

    Do you mean RDP to the music server from another Windows machine? I'll try that when I get home but my recollection is that the music plays without interruption.
