I have just bought a new SB2 and am in the middle of setting it up. I have spent ages over the weeks/months tweaking my 'old' SB2 to give the menus/plugins/screensaver settings etc that I'm happy with. I'm finding it very frustrating getting the new one set up 'right'.

Is there any way I can copy settings from one player to another ?? Or is this a new feature request ??

There could also be another link on the SB web homepage to give Player Settings - All. Any changes would be reflected across all players and not just one at a time.

Any thoughts ??

I think this could be done in the configuration file by copying the player info and replacing with the new MAC address, etc, but it might be tricky.

It is. I already thought about creating a plugin for doing this... but
then: just open the preferences file and have a look at the clients
section. You could simply copy the values from the old player beneath the
new player's id (mac address).

fair comments from both of you - thanks.
However, whilst I am happy to start 'hacking' the prefs file, I'm not sure consumers would be. Maybe this goes back to the threads about 'non-techy' people using Slimserver... but a button to do this would be MUCH more user friendly, and by the sounds of it, very easy to implement.

So, again, consider voting for this enhancement request:

So far there are only 2 votes, me and one other person.

The more votes, the more seriously Slim takes enhancement requests.
