while playing music and adding tunes to the currently playing list, how do i view the list of upcoming songs that i've added? i cant find a way to view that on the controller - i have to go back to the PC and view in squeezecenter??

and a quirk ive found - it seems to not play all the songs in order once i add a certain number. is the currently playing list limited to 10 songs?

I am also trying to determine how to view the current play list, with
album covers of course. I tend to select songs/albums through the "Music
Folder" since I dont rely on the automatic genre classification and
prefer to do it manually.

I just click with the centre button on the Controller when it is showing the Now Playing screen. That should take you to the current playlist. If you aren't at the Now Playing screen you can click on the Home key and then scroll to the top of the list and click on Now Playing.

Or click home again - it toggles between the home menu and now playing.

The genre classification isn't "automatic" -- SqueezeCenter only uses what are in the genre tag you have for the track. If you don't like what genre was assigned by your tagging program, or what came with a downloaded file, then you can always change it to what you think is appropriate.

Thank you so much. I'll give this a try when I get home.
