Hi Guys

Is there a way to make SB2 jump straight to the 'Now Playing' screen as soon as I select a favorite?

I suppose I could set the play screensaver to 'Now Playing' but is there another way?

Thanks

You could press the Now Playing button on your remote...

Hi

Yes but it would make life that litle titchy bit easier if say after 3 seconds 'Now Playing' just came on :-)

Why don't you set the screensaver when playing to 'Now Playing'
(with or without '(Jump back on wake.)' and the delay to something
like 5-10 seconds.

Does that achieve what you want?

"Why don't you set the screensaver when playing to 'Now Playing'

I was going to post this suggestion but I just did some experiments with SoftSqueeze. It does do what dfk wants but you need to be careful to set the "screensaver to use when not playing" (the middle one of the three on the web page) to "None" otherwise it keeps jumping into that screensaver while you are trying to browse to find the next thing to play.

By the way, I have sympathy with dfk's request, it bugged me too. I'd be glad of an enhancement for this because, although the above works, you do effectively lose the ability to set a screensaver when not playing.
