How are you going to increase the SIZE of a buffer without a hardware

You can't. BUT, the possibility of native FLAC decoding in hardware in the
Squeezebox is being looked into. Have a look at
http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=230, this is the feature
request. With native FLAC decoding you would increase the time the buffer
lasts by around 2x (possibly more possibly less depending on how well the
music compressed). Doesn't change the buffer size, but does increase it's
effectiveness :)

Are there any plans for a bigger buffer? Could this be done without an
hardware upgrade?
