Hi, when I select some albums and use the '+' sign to add them to the current playlist and I want to save them and give the playlist a name. It doesn't save it! (The playlist menu stays empty) When I try to save it via the SC server, it gives the same results. Any idea? Shuffle is on by song.

This is probably not going to be much help but just to say I once had that same problem. (Slimserver 6.5.4) It seemed to create playlist files on the disk but wouldn't read them back.

In the end I did a full rescan of the music library (clear first) and it fixed it. I've not had the problem since.

When I had this problem it was because the user that SqueezeCenter was running under (user "slimserver") did not have permissions to write to the playlist directory. Changing permissions on the directory was all it took.

Do you have a playlist folder defined?

In the old GUI there was a way to add an internet stream to the playlists.
I can't find it on the new GUI. The station is playing, but there is no + button on the web interface. Pressing the icon seems to just add it again in the right pane, and not in the left one on the playlists.

I am running on a Mac, and I think I own the folders. The plugins folder is certainly in my area and owned by me.
So is Playlist and Music.

I DID define the Playlist folder.

The new GUI is a step backwards IMHO.
