Hi All,

I know this might sound like a silly question but how can I view a list of all my songs by their ID3 tag? going to "Music Folder" shows the song's file name? Do I need a special plugin for this?

Thanks.

A little information would help. What are you viewing the list on:
a) the VFD screen of a SB "Classic" or Boom
b) the SB Duet Controller
c) the SC web ui

If it's (a), you can add "Songs" to the top-level menu (Settings > Player > Menus) and browse the tags that way. If it's (b) or (c) I think you're out of luck.

Are all your tracks in a single folder?! That's not really the best way to organize things, especially as you get a lot of tracks, because just about any OS doesn't like thousands of files in a single directory. At a minimum it will be very slow to read the directory listing.

On the SB3 I find using search \ songs valuable to get list of songs.

Interesting to put in a random word e.g. red and playing all songs that have red in their title! You may be able to do a blank search on song title. That might give you what you want?

Or when you browsing by other things (artists\genres etc.) I think All Songs is often an option in the list under a particular item.
