Is there any way to set the SB3 so that playback of a new
track that one skips into does not start before the buffer
is full up to a preset level (such as 20%)?

Occasionally when I am in the random mix mode and skip from
the current track to one further ahead in the playlist,
I get this annoying pause a few seconds into the new track,
which I presume happens because the buffer runs out (this
usually happens if the server is busy doing other stuff).
The pause is short (a fraction of a second) but annoying
nevertheless. It would be much better to have the SB3
wait a few seconds before starting playback of the new
track to make sure the buffer is at least some% full.
