View Full Version : Craziness in favorites list

I've mentioned before how I wish we could give streams our own names, rather than inconsistent names such as "News & Talk: KCRW Worldnews" for http://www.kcrw.org/pls/kcrwworldnews.pls.

But today, I noticed that my previous entry for KFJC had been changed to "kfjc" and it was not possible to make it go back to upper case (strangely, it also changed position in my list). Boy, this inconsistent "prenaming" of streams is making my SqueezeNetwork favorites list look like a random assemblage of playlists. Is there any reason we can't rename stream playlists to the form we want?

Yes, this is a real bug and an annoyance. Right now if the stream
sends down a name we replace any existing name with that
information. And some stations send down garbage.

Bug 2148 has been filed. Thanks.
