Is there any way (plugin?) to delete an mp3 file (physically, from the hard disc of the server) from the controller? I have a massive folder of music I got from a friend and I hate some of the songs but I'm too lazy to listen to the entire folder on my desktop. I'd rather just grab the controller and press DELETE every time I hear a song that I want to delete.

No, the Squeezebox server never writes to your music library.

But you can "zap" a song while listening (press and hold "+" on the IR remote, no idea which key does that on the Controller) which creates a file called "zapped.m3u" in your playlist directory. You can then inspect that file on your desktop later and delete the unwanted files manually.

The controller doesn't seem to do this. When I hit the '+' button it brings up a menu asking me to choose amongst some other options.
