Just adding my comments.
If you program a delete file into your player, the player will skip those tracks when you enter an entire disc into a playlist as it should. However there is a problem right now, if you delete track one in the player, CDJ will still play it. You can still select each track independently, so it's no biggie. But since it's not causing any lockups, and you can't upload a delete file back to the player, he probably put this idea on the back burner.
He first has to make a delete file for every disc in your library. He's already downloading the delete files from the player, so he has to make a secondary file for this info. Then he has to use this info to be able to start a disc on the first available track, and in shuffle mode. Then display the info by doing something like turning the track number red or highlighting the track title, so you will know which tracks are going to be skipped. And of coarse give you the option of using the players delete file or CDJs delete file.
To do all of this properly, so as to minimize feedback, could take the good part of a week. And there are still other problems that are causing lockups. First things first, I'm sure he'll get around to it. Programming a product like this, and keeping up with interfacing with new hardware is a never ending job. I think he's done an excellent job so far.
