View Full Version : Feature request; dedicated remote commands for specific favorites

I wish a remote with soft keys, such as my Harmony 890, could send commands to my Squeezebox to play specific items from my Favorites menu. For example, one button could play a certain playlist; another could play a favorite SqueezeNetwork radio station; another could play my Pandora station.

The user would somehow assign remote commands (PlayFavorite1, PlayFavorite2, etc.) to specific favorites, either from the Favorites menu or from the server user interface.

Could this be done as a server plugin? Or would it require a change to the hardware to understand these new commands?

Needless to say, this feature would be most useful when combined with a single, integrated Favorites list that includes SlimServer and SqueezeNetwork items -- which is supposed to happen in 7.0.

You can use the numerical keys on the remote to access your favorites: just press and hold 1 to get your first favorite.

You can make your Squeezenetwork favorites available on your slimserver by using the MyPicks plugin and copy/pasting into a MyPicks entry the OPML URL link at the bottom of the Squeezenetwork Favorites page.
