how do people here utilize their MusicIP moods since these are not visible through the headless MusicIP server?

Moods always used to be available in SC. They disappeared for me for a bit in 7.1 (running headless). Then they came back.

What version of SC and what version of MIP are you running?

Are you running on Windows by any chance?

If so, I think the problem is caused by the fact that the Moods directory (in Windows) has moved from c:/Program Files/MusicIP to C:/Documents and Settings/[Username]/Application Data[hidden folder]/MusicIP.

Squeezecenter is only looking in the Program Files location at the moment. I will file a bug.

Quick workaround is to copy the entire Moods folder from the MusicIP prefs folder in Documents and Settings (you will need to unhide the Application Data folder) to C:/Program Files/MusicIP. Then stop/start Squeezecenter and moods will be available. You will need to recopy every time you update.

Yes I am no Windows. I tried copying the folder but i still can't see them. Would they come up under my playlists?

Edit: Sorry I was looking at the wrong place. I can now see them...Thanks for your help!

No, the only MIP functionality which is available on the Controller at present is standard mix.

You can install the RetroBrowser plugin on the Controller which will enable to you to access all of the player menu functionality as if it were a Squeezebox Classic (I assume this will still work even if you only have a Duet without a display, but I only use the Classic/SB2s) as a workaround. This will include moodmixes.
