    m3u playlist problem

    Hi all!

    I have m3u playlist containing radio streams. Syntax is following :

    #EXTM3U
    #EXTURL:stream url
    #EXTINF:-1,Radio station name
    stream url

    Playlist work fine, but when stream is played it changes radio stations name to track name which is playing in stream. I suppose LMS takes them from streams tags.
    This is very annoying because I lost stations names.
    How can I prevent this?

    Yes, I can reproduce this.

    But why would you want a playlist of radio stations?

    Why not save each one as a favourite?

    Study - Pi3B+/pCP 5.0.0/pi screen/HiFiBerry DAC+/jivelite,

    Dining Room - Squeezebox Boom
    Garage - Squeezebox Touch > Edifier R980T

    Simply because I'm lazy. Someone has already made playlist, and I downloaded it.
    Saving those streams one by one to favourites seems to be the simplest solution.
