Hello,

I installed the trackstating plugin from Erland so I can rate the tracks looks very nice so far.

There is one problem the ratings my sister gives to tracks is also viewable in mine squeezebox.

Is this normal that putting a rating in one squeezebox is automatically in the other squeezebox?

Is there a way to separate these two squeezeboxes concerning ratings?

My sister is not very novice with the squeezebox is it possible with the remote that she accidentally removes a track?

TIA.

She can't remove a track from the SlimServer database with the remote, but she can remove it from a playlist. If she removes it from the playlist it will still be available in the SlimServer library if you use browse or search. To remove a track from a playlist several button clicks is needed in the right order, so the risk that this happens by accident shouldn't be that large.

HI Erland,

Sorry to hear that my sister's ratings are also visible in my SqueezeBox.

I meant with removing; deleting the song from the harddrive with the remote control.
