    Replicate Menu Layout

    Hi Guys

    I have quite a few Squeezebox Radios around the home. A recent crash on my main PC resulting in a reinstallation of all my software, reminded me that when setting-up LMS from scratch, and when working, it takes an age to configure all my radios so their screen layout (the menus) all look the same.

    I wondered if there was a way of automagically replicating the screen layout across ALL radios? I'm already using the Settings Manager Plugin by Peter Watkins and although that seems to backup most things and port them across to any other Radio, I don't think it applies to the menu sequence (it's the sequence/layout I'm interested in, as my constant tinkering with the menus for that 'ultimate layout' often confuses the family when they're using the radios around the room) "Dad, where's the Spotty option gone..?" 😁

    Cheers

    The Radio (and Touch and Controller) don't store their settings on the
    server. Therefore they shouldn't loose their menus even if you have to
    reset the server. And unfortunately there's no way backup and replicate
    either.

    Thanks for the quick reply Michael. That kind of confirms what I suspected (having spent a while fiddling with one radio and then looking for date/timestamp changes in the various squeezebox folders on the PC).

    Best regards
