Hi, I've really tried to figure this out and look in the forum, but so far I can't find the answer.

Using the Duet controller I add songs to a playlist by pressing the + button. Is there any way to delete the entire playlist or any part of it without have to go to SC to do it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Press home twice to get to the Now Playing screensaver, then push the center button to get to the current playlist. At the bottom of the current playlist there are options to save or clear.

The quicker way to clear the playlist is just push play instead of add on an album/artist/genre, which will clear the playlist and start playing that (much to some peoples dismay).

Forgot to mention, push add on items in the current playlist to delete just that track, rather than the whole thing.

...do you think there will ever be a manual on the Duet? I've looked high and low and I might just be missing it.

Thanks very much again. Quite helpful.

Under the SUPPORT tab above (site menu), see DOCUMENTATION.

Thanks again. I had that pdf already from when I installed the Duet. It really wasn't much help at the time so I forgot to go back to it and read the user instructions. I'll do it tonight. I ended up getting called in to work for a network issue.

Have a great day,

Howard

Can you rearrange songs within the Duet's playlist? I know that I could use shuffle but this randomly moves the songs around. I would like control to arrange the songs as they are being played.

You cant as far as i know, but it's something i and others have requested in an enhancement request on bugzilla. What i would like to see is selecting a track on the playlist and press-holding the center button which would bring up a pop up menu with options such as move up, down etc.

I like your suggestion. I searched bugzilla and couldn't find it to add my vote. Could you provide the bug ID # ? Thx.

You probably already know this, but just in case you don't, you can rearrange songs in the playlist using the web ui. SC7 supports drag-and-drop for this. But it's not the same thing as having it on the Controller.

"At the bottom of the current playlist there are options to save or clear."

Not on mine! When you scroll to the bottom it simply jumps back to the top.

Also, there is no way to select artists, playlists, etc. I can simply link to other songs by the same artist, etc.

This is the closest I found: http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=5419

Seems like it would be better to have an enhancement request specifically for the controller, but I'm not the one to say.

It seems like I remember mine having those options for a while now. My Controller is on r2097 firmware and SC is 7.0. Maybe you need to do a factory reset or update firmware?
