View Full Version : Two-way updating between Slimserver?

In advance of purchasing SqueezeBox for my cottage I have been using SlimServer and SoftSqueeze. Based on some behaviours of this setup I have a question about "hardware" (vs Softsqueeze) Slimserver/Squeezebox control:



Does adding a song(s) via the remote/Squeezebox get reflected in the Slimserver playlist, i.e. the added song(s) show up on the Slimserver "The Current Playlist"? (it doesn't seem to when I use Softsqueeze)



Thanks!

It does, and should when using softsqueeze as well. The application interface
is basically a browser, with a pre-set refresh rate. This timing can be changed
in the server settings. It has no way of being aware of server events so you
would not see a song added immediately, but after teh refresh, it should be
there. Default refresh is 30s, automaticaly set for shorter if the server
knows the end of a song is closer than 30s away.

Hope that answeres your query.
