Hi there,
Love my Squeezebox Radio, but I'm curious if there is a plugin or something that i can get to browse through the artists faster. Takes a long time to get to the higher letters. Search would be useful except it doesn't live-update. so I need to type the whole artist and click enter before i see results. Would love to hear if there's a better way. Thanks!

High letters? Do you mean S T U V etc? - spin the knob anticlockwise.
Purchase a Classic/Transporter remote?
Use an iTouch/iPhone with the iPeng app?

Yep I use iPeng, and it's great. But woah i never knew you could spin the nob the other way... it truly is the little things that make the difference :-). Thanks!

The Audiotron uses the Fast Forward and Reverse buttons to jump to the next letter in the alphabet.

If you are on "Abba", press FWD to get to the beginning of the artists that start with "B", press FWD again to get to the beginning of the artists that start with "C", etc.

This dramatically reduces knob spinning when searching a long alphabetized list.

Seems it would be easy to add this to the SB Radio.
