Hello.

I got a squeezebox version 3. But I do miss the functionality to rate currently played song. And after that cretate a playlist based on the rating.

I'm trying to find the proper plugin for this, but I have failed to do so.

Can someone please help me out here?

Tnx in advance :)

You need Trackstat and DynamicPlayList. Both can be found here (http://wiki.erland.homeip.net/index.php/Category:SlimServer).

Not sure if/how these work with the Duet at the moment, but as you have an SB3 you should be fine.

Dynamic Playlist works with Duet, TrackStat doesn't.

My feeling is that it isn't possible to make a decent user interface before one of the following enhancement requests has been implemented (Currently planned for SC 7.1):
http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=6021
http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=6619

It would be possible to provide the browsing menus to browse the TrackStat data without the above mentioned enhancements, but I feel that you also need to be able to rate the tracks and that can't be easily done without one of these enhancements.

It's more about time, so if you could get me 25 hour days it would help a lot. ;-)

Trackstat is the only plugin I use!! Great stuff! It's great to have a top ## of what people are listening to around the house and on the 'external' squeezeboxes.

Keep up the great work!!

you're right, (re)rating songs while listing is as important as creating mixes! the least i can do now is vote for those bugs.

hmm, i think those 25-hour days are sold out, i didn't get one either :-) I think i'll need to come up with something else...(PM)

kind regards,

Hold down one of the number buttons 1-5 for about two seconds when standing on a track in the Now Playing menu.

How much would it cost to get you to have the 25 hour day? I am sure 5 of us would paypal you $20 to be exclusive testers :)

The easiest way to be exclusive tester is to create and send me a working patch.

Given my programming knowledge of the Duet is zero, I think creating a 25 hour day for you is easier :)

If you know Albert Einstein's theories of relativity, I'm sure you are aware that the solution is to send me a fast Ferrari or a space ship. :-)
