Then I have to update all the mac address inside Ha bridge. Being able to edit the name would make life easier. Thanks for another great plugin!
    If I understood correcly, you can change the name under the player's tab (in LMS settings) - remember, as far as LMS is concerned, it's just another player will all attributes (hence, e.g. you can do that bitrate limitation).

    Well that turned out to be a silly request. Thanks.

    Initial tests prove positive! Not seen any issues with players being at 100%.. Result!

    Now get on with those other options.. haha

    Handling of "volume fixed at 100%" players

    Hi,

    maybe I didn't get it correctly, but I have a player group that also has my "main" living room player as a member, which is fixed at 100% volume via preferences. It seems that this preference also applies when he is playing as part of the group, making - for me - the volume control a bit counter intuitive...

    Wouldn't it be better to temporarily unset the fixed volume pref as long as it is playing as part of the group and on breaking up the sync the fixed volume pref is restored?

    Regards and keep up the good work!!!!

    If I follow you, I'd better not include that player in the average volume calculation rather than un-fixing its volume, no? I assume that you've set it a 100% for a good reason and you want to keep it like that even if it's member of a group, no?

    Actually, no - I would prefer if you would temporarily "unfix" the volume of the player while playing in a group. The reason for the 100% volume fix in the first place is only for having the best possible quality when listening very concentrated to music on my main stereo alone... That by definition doesn't apply to the case of having everything in the whole apartment synced (party mode...)

    I know that my main premise (fixed volume = better sound quality) may be complete snake oil... but nevertheless it gives me the warm and fuzzy feeling of having done all I can do :-)

    I have been using Group Player for a while and prefer it a lot over synchronizing players.

    One thing though, the virtual player has far less settings and what I miss in particular is the screen saver.
    I have one group that combine a Receiver and SB3, on the SB3 I wish to show Music Infromation Screensaver but I cannot get it to work with the virtual player.

    Any thoughts, ideas, tips?

    The group player doesn't have a display. It's just a logical grouping of
    your players. Therefore their individual settings should still apply.
