In the squeezebox UI, I have to separately search by artist, title, or song. The web UI just has an edit box that searches all these indices. Any way to get that on the squeezebox UI?

Essentially, I want to search my music like google - I don't care what ID tag field it found the search string in (nor do I want to specify which field to search).

Thanks.

The 'keyword' search mode in the Lazy Search plugin works like that - see the footer of the plugins page on the wiki for a link.

There was also some talk about this previously but I don't think it got anywhere - have a search of http://bugs.slimdevices.com and raise an enhancement request if you can't find one already.

Thanks. Lazy search was crashing my server (6.5), but I've since done a clean install. I'll give it another try.

If it's still not working for you (and you've got the latest version), if you want me to try to help fix it then feel free to raise a ticket here:

As far as I know there aren't any major problems with 6.5 (although I am investigating something at the moment), so I'd be keen to know if anyone's having trouble.
