Hi there,

Is there an easy way to clear the playlist from the remote. It's pretty easy to do so from the web interface, but often when I start the SB2, it still has an old playlist in there.

What button do you press to clear all songs from the current playlist so one can start from scratch?

Cheers.

What I usually do is just browse to what I want to hear and hit
"Play", that effectively clears the old list and creates a new one
with what I just picked.

There's another way, which from distant memory is hold "add" while
"Now Playing" is showing. But just starting a new one with "Play"
seems easier.

Thanks Jim.

I am really surprised that the SB2 doesn't have a simple button on the remote to clear the playlists.

The playlist is beautifully done in this device, I love how it remembers the last one played, even if the device is switched off (and the computer powered down).

But surely some other people wish to start from scratch sometime when they switch on. I wish there was another way.

Are there universal remotes, where you could program a dedicated button to clear the playlist? Is this an option?

I think if you had a universal remote, you could program a macro to do it.

I think the consensus is that, when you power on, it will be paused.
If at that point you just ignore the current playlist and go find what
you're looking to hear, and press 'Play' that's all you have to do.
The old list is history and you have a fresh new list with your new
song/album whatever.

To clear play list from remote press the back arrow (<) on the remote
Until it will not go back any more. Then scroll to the now playing and
press the + button and it will clear the current play list. I'm pretty
sure you have to use the back arrow and not the now playing button for
this to work.

you can also look in server settings, behavior (or maybe its
performance), and set it not to remember client playlists.
