View Full Version : Timed Playlist Execution

I would like to be able to control the music being played according to the
time of day - Is there a method (either by plugin or otherwise) whereby I
can force the playing of a particular playlist at a particular time?



This is for a setup which has two players (no need to sync) but I only want
to control the playlist for one of them.



Can I use the Command Line Interface to achieve this?

Could you do that with an alarm? You can assign playlists to alarms.

That is fantastic - I had no idea (I had not looked there!). That looks like
it will do exactly what I want it to.



Thank you for your speedy reply.



Kind regards


Richard

No problem - I thought it was a trick question at first!

Not at all - I am a little out of touch - I currently use SB2's and Classic
and I have some Slimp3's which I no longer have connected - it was the
Slimp3's which got me interested in these products and I have evangelized
them ever since.



I will most likely update the latest versions at some time but for me it is
all working really well.



Regards



Richard
