    Transfering Favourites between Players

    Suspect I should've managed to sort this myself but I hope someone can steer me in the right direction please.

    I have a number of standalone RPi based players in different rooms, not synced or linked.

    I've just updated my Favourites for a few new flac Streaming Radio sources (SuperStereo mainly) and was hoping to find an easy way to add them to the other Players avoiding the manual add and url/name typing?

    Appreciate any help, thanks.

    Favourites are LMS rather than per player ... so they should appear automatically.
    Perhaps old list cached for a while.

      OP says they're stand alone players, each running their own instance of LMS?

        That's correct, RPi with LMS on a USB connected hard drive in two instances & a DAC32 with LMS on a nearby laptop.

            and the file to look for is prefs/favorites.opml
            You can see where the prefs folder is from Default UI Settings/Information - near the bottom of the page.

            You can also Import (a .opml) by editing the favourites and going to the bottom of the list.

              My way of dealing with something similar was to add all my favorites to a MySB.com account - these then show up in any linked LMS, and on any linked player. However, with the move by many stations to https (rather than http) this is no longer reliable, MySB.com not liking https at all ......

                I use Samba and freefilesync.

                Assuming they are on the same network, ffs has a to/from script and you can mirror (master->slave) or update (newest replaces oldest), or custom and you can stack scripts. So effectively you can duplicate the favorites.opml file across many players

                If they are not on the same network (which is my situation - two locations miles apart) I use a USB HDD (you could use a thumb drive) as an intermediary for my library and favorites.

                But of course this requires a PC somehow connected to each player.
