Hi All,

I'm a Squeezebox newbie.
I've contacted Silm directly about this, and they couldn't help,
but recommended asking in the forum.

Apparently within a Playlist you can use the numbers on the remote
to jump to different sections of the Playlist. They said that
Pressing 1 will take you to the first track in the Playlist
0 will take you to the last track, and everything in-between
is divided up depending on the size of the Playlist.

I don't really use this feature,
as all my Playlists are just album lists within iTunes.
However I do have about 1000 albums,
and would like to be able to jump to different sections
of the List of Playlists using the remote.

I did find that pressing 1 jumps to the 1st Playlist
and 5 jumps to the first Playlist beginning with Z
but the numbers in-between don't do anything,
or they also jump to the 1st Playlist.
My contact at Slim couldn't say why they hadn't programmed this in.
But seemed to think perhaps someone in the forums
might have programmed a work around.

What I really want to be able to do
is use the number buttons on the remote
like you'd use the number buttons on your mobile phone keypad.
So the 2 button would be for A/B/C
pressing it twice would jump to the first Playlist beginning with B
pressing it three times would jump to the first Playlist beginning with
C

Cheers,
Cal
