    (like Best buy's insignia products)

    I mostly use my squeezeboxes as radio's and only use mysqueezebox.com, wouldn't itbe possible to directly control the on/off, volume, channel from alexa with this, bypassing LMS?
    Well the skill talks to LMS and not to the players directly, just as the GUI does. So I don’t see this working without a server in the loop.

    Not with this skill (limitation of smart home skills). The ‘other’ skill (MediaServer) can do that because it has a custom voice model.

    Actually, @Simon74's request got me thinking it should be possible to play favorites by number using the Alexa.RangeController interface and I got that working easily in a beta skill.

    The syntax is "Alexa, favorite 2 on Livingroom" without mentioning "play". Once the targeted player has voice focus, a subsequent "Alexa, favorite 3" will work just fine with the same player. Etc.
    As an alternative text, I've chosen "Preset" unless anybody has a better suggestion?

    Before I upload the code to the live skill, any suggestions as to what 2 words to use for Favorite in French and German?

    Favori / Programmé | Favorit / Lieblings are what I beta'd with but they sound off to even my untrained ears...
