Do Not Allow Same Song In Queue Multiple Times

You can specify in the options screen to not allow duplicates in the queue so you will not get the same song played several times in a row as some users like to. This is an option to turn on and off as you so desire.

Direct Launching Of The Program

The program can be launched straight off the desktop with no need to run the config program and you can play and browse you library with ease. The only facilities that will not work when doing this are the search and the tivo ratings.

If no image is found it will still display a file not found image keeping it looking professional and not leaving any blanks.
