Hi - using the web interface to slimserver, how do I create a MusicMagic playlist from the song that's currently playing?

I've got MusicMagic integrated fine - the little mm symbol is beside all the tracks - but surely _the_ place where MusicMagic excells is that you're listening to a track and think "hey, I'd like to listen to more like that" - I can't find an mm symbol for the track that's playing. Cicking on the track at the top gets you song information, but there's no "mm" link in that either?

via remote:
Press right into track info, then down to album. Pressing right should
get you to that track, then you can press and hold PLAY

via web:
click on the album link, then click the mm icon next to the track in
the browse list.

Thank you - I hadn't thought of that. A rather round-about way of doing things but way better than not being able to do it at all - many thanks.

I know the default skin is to be kept un-cluttered - but given all the little mm icons everywhere else in the interface already, it's wierd that there isn't on for the current track that's playing (not even in fishbone come to that) - maybe it'll be added one day.

Cheers,
