Foobar is excellent software, but don't use the replaygain option on your files. It screws up vorbis files making them unplayable on TV media players and has zero effect on the db level of aac/mp4a files, despite the operation stating done. You scan for gain update the tag, but it is the metadata tag which messes up the playback okay on a PC but screwed for a media player attached to your TV.
