I follow the instructions in the Help menu, Playlist files.
Example

[playlist]
numberofentries=1
File1=http://abc.net.au/streaming/coast.asx
Title1=ABC-CoastFM
Length1=-1
Version=2

Saved the file as Coast.pls
0777 permission, just to be sure.

The file exists in the SlimDevices music folder, but clicking at the file does nothing.

I can copy the url to the Radio Tune in box, and it works.
But how to avoid that cut 'n paste process everytime we try to tune to a new station ?

What am I doing wrong ?

TIA's

Edit. SlimServer Version: 6.3.1 - 8476 - Linux
Regret cannot upgrade to SS 6.5.4 because perl v5.8.0 only.
D'oh.

If your reason for using pls file is to have a nice name on the entry - an alternative would be to use the MyPicks plugin.

It look like MyPicks is for Windoze.
Am I wrong ?

No - MyPicks is all in Perl and works on all platforms. A benefit of MyPicks is use of OPML fiel format which will work with SS 6.5x and 7.x.
