Just a quick note to let everyone know that Erland's Custom Scan, SQLPlayList & DynamicPlayList plugins can easily be used to enable creation of playlists based on user definable tag values. In my case, as the bulk of my library tagging has included STYLE, MOOD & THEME tags, I am now able to playlist using these attributes, and I'm glad to report that the resulting playlists are fantastic.

This potentially provides a very credible alternative to MusicIP (guess it depends on how good your tagging is) for playlisting and has the added advantage that it is available from your remote, irrespective of whether you are running slimserver on a PC, server or NAS - so long as your NAS allows you access to install slimserver plugins.

For anyone interested, there is a thread that explains how this was implemented. It's not quite finished, but is functional right now - see http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=38256

All kudos to Erland for his excellent plugins and assistance.
