I've got three players:
Livingroom is an SB3 in my living room
TRF.Home is an SB3 at a friend's house
nmci-micke is a SoftSqueeze at work.

When I'm mucking about w/ playlists and various settings, I loginto http://myservername:9000 and notice that TRF.Home is always the selected player.

And the question:

1) How is the default player chosen?
2) Do I have any control over this? I might prefer Livingroom since it is by far the 'most' connected player (it's at home.. via wifi) where the other two are located outside my LAN and must be 'routed' in.

Many thanks for any thoughts you might have to share on this.

I have bookmarked http://localhost:9000/index.html?player=00:04:20:05:aa:a2

The bit after player= is the MAC address of my main Squeezebox.

There are other similar approaches that work.

which, if you don't already know, can be found on the bottom of each
squeezebox.

Most skins will choose the player by alphabetical order. The Fishbone
skin is an exception, tracking the last selected player as a cookie and
returning to that on each reload until another player is selected from
the menu.

Danco: thanks! that's brilliant!
kdf: I'm not seeing that to be the case. On the default SlimServer skin, the order is "no particular"

but it looks like that URL is right on time.

Thanks guys!

Note the MAC can also be found in Settings - Information - Player Information.
