Hi All,

I've just bought my second squeezebox (mmm, all black v3, nice) and I am now suffering a bit of frustration with adding a playlists item to squeezebox menu. If anybody can help with this, it would be much appreciated.

The summary of my setup and the problem is as follows:

- Slimserver 6.5.1 running on Ubuntu.
- All music and playlists taken from my iTunes library. The library is on the Ubuntu box.
- No non-iTunes playlists.
- Playlists are available and work fine from the server web interface.
- Playlists are available and work from the Browse->Playlists menu on the Squeezeboxen.
- I had added a Playlists top menu item to my old Squeezebox, which was working fine.

- Problem: I expected it would be trivial to add a Playlists menu item to the new Squeezebox. Unfortunately, the Playlists menu item is not available on the Squeezebox config menu on the server.
- To make matters worse I deleted the Playlists item from my old squeezebox menu and can't add it back!

Can anybody help add Playlists back to my top level Squeezebox menus (I can still get there by browse, but I'd like to avoid the two step)

Cheers,

Larry

Not sure what might have happened but, for the heck of it, try restarting slimserver.

If that doesn't work I'm sure this setting's in your prefs file somewhere and while I can't give you any explicit help (I'm not terribly familiar with how that file's structured) you could probably poke around in there and figure it out.

Gave the restart a try, but no luck.

I'm also unable to access the alarm menu on the older (v2) squeezebox. I'm thinking a flush of preferences/forget player may be in order.

Thanks for the head's up on the prefs file - I'll have a dig in there as well.
