Hi all,
I would like to preserve my actual playlist when switching to a radio station so I can easily switch back to the playlist.

Is there some possibility/plugin for that?

Background: I have a Radio and a Touch, both synched together. When listening to a playlist, I want to switch to a radio station for some time, f.e. to hear the actual news. After that, I would like to switch back to the playlist (maybe even to the actual played song) without having to create this playlist again.

Any hint is appreciated.

If you just add the station to the current playlist "play next" and then press skip and when finished listening to radio, skip again ?

Thanks for the hint, I will try this.

I see one problem when doing this on the radio: I have set the 6 buttons as shortcuts for the radio stations and mostly these buttons are pressed to switch to the radio stations (not going via menu).

Can I add an action like "play radio station x next" to the 6 radio buttons?

Ok I see :-/

Typically the squeezebox replaces the whole playlist if not added to play next or added to end

The only other ways I can see is to actually save the playlist if it is some work behind it .

Or unsync the player you are at when listening to radio and re-sync later

I would like to come back to this topic as it is still annoying.
Is there a way to do a "play next and skip to next title" action instead of a "play" action when pressing a button on radio or selecting 1..6 on the remote to access one of the presets?
This way an existing playlist would be saved.
