That is friggin' AWESOME. I will echo kdf's sentiment and repeat: YOU ROCK!

It's even better than I expected. The conditional behavior is just PERFECT.
I was thinking that I would have to change the config when I wanted to
diplay radio/playlist info, but now I can just leave the same config always,
and it works perfectly!!!!!! It's like you're a MIND READER or something...
:o)

As far as slimserver not remembering the playlist name after restarting
slimserver and just hitting PLAY, well, I can live with that, but hopefully
(??) that's something that will be fixed eventually on the backend! If
slimserver can remember the playlist, it should remember the playlist name
as well, one would hope :o)

Thanks Michael! Great Job!

No mind reader. But I'm using my own plugins, too :-). And I'm regularly
listening to online radios and my own collection alternatively. I knew the
problem.
