    New Slimserver Features?

    I've been anxiously hoping and waiting for some type of song "flag" feature which will allow me mark tracks of interest. Such a feature would make it so much easier to put custom playlists together. Does anyone know if the new Slimserver can do this?

    Actually this feature has been in Slim for a long time. You can ZAP a song, however for the life of me I can not remember the exact button you need to press on the slim remote to "zap" a song. But this should do exactly what you want. I obviously dont use it much, but checked it out in my early slim days.

    Check the manual for how to.

    Zap?

    I looked into this when I first bought my Squeezebox 2 in the summer. The word I got was that there was no way to tag songs with the remote (or any other way for that matter). Can anyone elaborate on Zapping?

    I think you just press the "+" button while the song you want added is in the Now Playing Playlist. Do not press and hold, just tap.

    Zapping a song also removes it from the current playlist. This probably isn't what you want. I've never seen the point of zapping. Can anyone explain the rationale behind it?

    To zap a song, press and hold add on an item that is already in your current playlist.

    Some people think the title of this song is irrelevant,
    but it's not irrelevant - it's a hippopotamus.

    Zapping is for when you select by Artist > Paul Simon, and after it
    plays his first two solo albums and the Graduate soundtrack, it tosses
    in some horrible bit of dreck from your wife's radio station compilation
    CD. Hypothetically speaking of course

    Zapping

    Pressing and holding the + button removes the current song from the playlist and adds it to a special playlist called "Zapped Songs". I usually use it to flag tracks with quality problems (I have a lot of concert recordings and some have dropouts or mic problems).

    But you could also use the "Zapped Songs" playlist to designate favorites.

    Tapping just removes it from the playlist.

    Press-and-hold ADD removes it from the playlist and moves it to the
    Zapped playlist.

    afaik it was originally added as a feature to easily "tag" a song
    if you while listening found it bad/broken/corrupt or similiar...
