Hi,



SuSE Linux 9.2 - Squeezebox2 - Slimserver 6.0.1



I have just organised my radio stations in my playlists folder into various
sub folders. However, now that I have done that, I can no longer use these
playlists for my Squeezebox Alarm setting, as they are no longer visible in
the pull-down menu.



Is there anyway to make the Alarm option look recursively into the Playlists
folder so that it finds all the playlists therein? I could move some of the
playlists back into the main older, but that would mess up my
organisation..... :-(



Should I raise an enhancement request for this?



Thanks,



Patrick

not with the built in alarm. the alarm plugin does allow navigation to submenus
through the player UI.

you can always raise a request. however, this has been requested before and the
decision then had been to keep the built-in alarm simple, and let the complex
functions be done through a plugin.

It seems to me that it might be best just to remove the built-in alarm
functionality altogether, and move your alarm pluging into the
officially supported source tree.
