Anyone know a way to set ignore lists? For instance, I have some Christmas
music that I don't want to hear when my slimserver is playing random music,
so I would like to create an ignore list that contains all those songs.
Better yet, wouldn't it be cool to be able to ignore an entire genres?

Any thoughts?

If you use iTunes, then a Smart Playlist allows for ignoring certain
(types of) songs.

In some skins, you can rmeove lists. Fishbone, for example, has a - button.
You can add "all albums" then click - next to your christmas genre to remove
all the songs tagged with the christmas genre.

And if you don't use iTunes, then Smart Playlist functionality in the
SlimServer would be a fantastic enhancement.

once again, this brings us back to the DBI discussions. Once we do get a DBI
written in, thigns liks smart playlists, sort by year, browse new music, etc
all become relatively trivial in comparision to trying that now. It is unlikely
that the effort tomake the features available until after the huge task of
choosing and implementing a nice, cross-platform, easily available DBI comes
about.

in response to another recent post, ALL feature requests are worth psoting at
bugs.slimdevices.com. They may not be immediately feasible, but posting them
there makes sure it will be looked at again.
