Is it possible to play random tracks from a selected year, or even a selected decade. I can't see any obvious way at the moment.

I used to have this feature on another bit of software and I found it really handy. e.g. play a random mix of stuff I've bought this year.

If not, 7.0 PLEASE?

Thanks.

I have done this already. Really nice functionality especially for freaks like myself that like to randomly "browse" their music collection in any possible kind of way ;-)

As I am currently not at home I cannot give you an exact specification but it is something like this:

- Go to the players settings via the remote control on the Squeezebox itself and select that you'd like to hear your selections in random mode.
- After that go to select the music by year and when you're at the year you're looking for just press the play button.

Cheers,
Sebastian

DOH!

Cheers Sebastian!

It would be nice to have it hanging off the random menu somehow though.
