Ok, search with party plugin does not get any usable results, just to many.
Also tried announce with party, the same problem.

I know there is a thread but can't find it.

Q. How do I select which players belong to the party player. Only able to select one player (radio button) with synchronize

If it's the iPeng party plugin i sugest you use the ipeng support tread ..

I don't think so. Someone made an lms plugin to combine multiple players so they react as one and the plugin is called party

OK but you can do that with the normal sync functions already in LMS no need for a plugin.
You just sync them all.

Or use the new virtual player plugin and create a virtual player that include the players you want for a party , and just start that one when you sudenly want to fill the house with music :)

Yes, that's the purpose of the virtual player plugin. Only problem is that I'm not able (or see) how to select the involved players.

Ah, I think my first action would update lms and also the plugin. The options you're showing are not visible.
Correction, found the options.
Thnx

Also tried with BBQ Veranda but no luck. Status bar says connecting for [IP_LMS] and then nothing. Strange part is that the player Party in-out simply worked.
If a find some more time i will upgrade LMS to latest build and see what happens but i don't think it will make much difference to the plugin.
Also tried with chrome, same result. cleared cache, same result.

tried remove, reboot lms, add group player. No luck.
Also noticed that the old define player party in-out is still present. Apparently removal of plugin does not remove entire config.
Only thing i can think of is would be to update to PcP3.5 and then LMS to latest build and then re try. This takes time i don't have at the moment.
Anyone aware of a portable windows tool that ia able to create a compressed image of an SD card and later able wo write it back to an SD card keeping logical structure intact (Win32DiskImager does not do this)?

Edit. I am not sure if it works on SD cards but an SD card in a reader looks like a USB flash drive. I only know about it since I used it for the old Squeezeplug.

Is it normal behavior that a radio, a boom, a classic 2 and a pi in a group are not playing in sync? Even when is switch of the group player the classic and pi stay on.
I guess something is going on. How can I completely remove the plugin? Just de selecting on the plugin page did not work when selecting the plugin again the settings returned.

go to /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/prefs/plugin and delete the file named groups.pref
