Hi,

I was wondering if it was possible to:

A) When using the alarm clock setting to be able to
select albums in addition to playlists to play.

B) In iTunes (Mac) I keep a Smart playlist of
"Compilations" so I can find multi-artist albums a bit
more quickly. However, when I select this playlist, I
can't browse it for a specific album (except song by
song). If playlists such as this can't be browsed by
album, is it possible to add Compilations as a "Browse
by..." feature?

C) Is it possible to add the capability to insert a
song or album into the current playlist and not just
append to the end (via the remote)?

Thanks,
Julius

Not yet. The workaround is to create a saved playlist containing that
album. This might be a good feature for KDF's SuperAlarm Plugin.

That's a good suggestion. Can you add it to bugs.slimdevices.com?

This one is already there. If you press and hold ADD the item will be
added to be played next instead of at the end of the list.

could probably leverage the existing browse-albums code for this, but it would
definatley need to be a plugin preference option. However, I'm suspicious about
true/false settings for plugins. I have two plugins that use them, and they
refuse to display properly. I'm hesitant to add more until I can figure out if
I'm just nuts, or there really is a bug there.
