i mainly use PMS to stream "spotify" music to my WDTV Live using a direct sound bridge.
The stream starts to interupt after 30-60 minutes (sometimes sooner).
All that seems to help is push "stop" on the wdtv live and hit "play" again.
It would be lovely to have the stream run smoothly for hours.
Any idea what could be done to fix this? the Log of PMS doesnt show anything interesting after

The PMS runs on a Win7 Laptop connected via Wi-Fi but i doubt its an connection issue:
- connection is stable regarding any other applicatons running on the laptop
- streaming the audio requires a ridiculously low amount of bandwidth
One thing i noticed, maybe this is related:
The longer the stream is played, the bigger the delay between whats played on PC and what i hear from WDTV-Live gets. When i skip forward on my pc i takes sometimes 30-60 seconds before the WDTV reaches the place in the stream where i hit the button.
Any idea how to get rid of that (the interuptions, the lag is a nice to have)?
thanks in advance!
