I usually put a randomised playlist on based on a couple of albums i add in quick succession. Trouble is is that on the controller i am struggling to know where to look for what is coming up next. Anyone know how to do this?

From the 'now playing' screen, press the center button. That should do it.

Perfect, thanks for the hepl. Makes my life a lot easier. Is there a wiki where all these controls are stored?

Hmm... "Items in the playlist can be deleted by pushing ADD while highlighted."
I never would have guessed that!

I know, right?

I added that bit to the wiki, but wonder how people who don't visit the web site learn about leet tricks like these. I never got a printed manual so I'm not sure if it was in there or not.

A more picture oriented and easy to read html or pdf document for getting started would help overcome the 'sonos is expensive but squeezebox is techy' argument, IMO. IIRC that was the jist of Maxim's one page review of network streamers in their latest issue.

Thanks for the heads-up on this wiki. I discovered some of these on my own, such as the volume adjustment witht he scroll wheel after you press one of the volume buttons.

It's too bad that this information is not included in the manual for the product. Things such as the volume adjustment and "click add to remove a track" aren't exactly intuitive, yet they are very useful functions.
