    TrackStat Ratings Support

    Had to change my player in my office from a v3 Classic to a Touch recently. Is there any way I can set a rating with the remote (with the classic I could hold down a number 1-10), and also how to display the rating on the touch screen with the song info?

    Seems its still not possible. This is why I'll always prefer v3 Classics.

    Not out of the box, no, but imho it could be done. I'm not so familiar with the "setting a rating value" part which I would image is the trickier part.

    But I think you could definitely display the rating value of the currently playing song on the now playing screen.
    Trackstat adds it owns titleformats to LMS, e.g. "TRACKSTATRATINGNUMBER" that contains the rating value (20 means 1 star, 40 = 2 stars and so on).

    The rating display on the Touch is handled by its NowPlaying applet which would have to get the current TRACKSTATRATINGNUMBER value from LMS.

    I'd be happy to change the code myself for you, and I've tried. But I couldn't get it to work. If I ever figure this out I'll report back here.
    Good luck.
