I've been trying unsuccessfully to find some docs on this: is it possible to have SqueezeCenter scan more than one music directory? If so, how?

Assuming windows:

Create a shortcut from one directory to the other.

Ie C:\Music can have a shortcut to D:\MoreMusic and SC will follow that short tcut and index D:\MoreMusic as well.

On Linux it would be a Symlink, and MacOs has something similar (though Symlinks should work fine on MacOS too).

Thanks!

I don't know why I didn't think of that - it seems so obvious now ;-)

I guess I was expecting to be able to put multiple delimited paths into the Music Folder text field...

You are not alone. This is being addressed as part of the database revamp that is being planned for the next major revision of SqueezeCenter. If you are interested, have a look at the wiki page: http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.php/NewSchema

This is slated for SC 8.0 (http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.php/SoftwareRoadmap) but don't hold your breath for 8.0, it's going to be a lot of work and take as long as it takes i think :)
