Is there a way to transfer what I'm playing on my livingroom controller to the one in the study, then be able to turn the livingroom controller off and still have the audio playing in the study.

At the moment if I sync the two, when I stop the livingroom controller it stops the study. I want to be able to keep the study playing.

Enable the "Switch Player" plugin in "Settings->Plugins" in the web interface.

Thanks for the quick reply, but I don't seem to have the switch player plugin.

Had a quick look through the Logitech Media Server repositories and can't find it in there either.

Enable "All 3rd party plugins" at the bottom of the plugin screen and it should appear.

"Switch Player" is a must for everyone who has more than one Squeezebox. :) LMS should include it by default IMO.

or the "other player" plugin .

With that one you can both send and grab playlists from other players

You shouldn't need a plug-in for this, though. I have "Other Players" but I hardly ever need to use it.

This doesn't happen to me. I turn synced players off and on all the time and turning one off does not stop playback on the others. Isn't this controlled by the "Synchronize Power" setting?

There is a setting somewhere which controls whether volume/power buttons are also sync'd.

Use the Power button, not the Stop button. It's in the upper right under the Logitech logo. You know, an O with a stick in the top !
