Hi All,

I am a new slimserver/squeezebox user. I am sooooo glad I found this
device. I LOVE IT!!!

I have a question though. When I installed slimserver 5.4 on XP pro, the
server scanned my library and created a playlist for just about every MP3 in
my library.

How do I get rid of the bogus playlists, and re-sync so it pics up the
itunes playlists I have?

Gotta differentiate between playlists and the individual songs... if
you've tagged your MP3s with artist and album information, it will sort
everything into Artist>Album>Song heirarchies. You can also create
playlists by selecting stuff and saving it (I advise checking out the
Fishbone skin for this purpose).

In fact, I've just finished setting up our Solstice Party playlist for
tomorrow :)

iTunes integration involves going to server settings > iTunes and
configuring it there. I don't know much about the options, can't stand
iTunes myself so I've never used the integration option. I can tell you
that if iTunes is not installed on the same computer as Slimserver,
you'll need to copy some xml files over on a regular basis.

With respect to you having playlists for every mp3 in your library--if your
playlist directory is set to be the same as your music directory then you'll
see this behavior. Try different directories then wipe cache and rescan
(I've never gotten a simple rescan to work for me). I can't answer the
Itunes questions, either, as I don't use it.
