I am trying to use the CLI interface to send an audible and message alert to the Squeezebox. I am just wondering the smoothest way to do this?

Currently I am:
- Saving current songs as a temporary playlist
- Querying for index in the song list and time through the song
- Pausing the song
- Increasing the volume by 50%
- Playing a notify sound
- Displaying a message
- Returning Volume to original level
- Reloading the temporary playlist
- Starting to replay from the Index and Time I saved earlier

The volume increase can cause problems because the current song hasn't yet paused. The notify sound sometimes doesn't get played, and the reloading of the playlist can take a second or so by which time the screensaver has kicked in.

This is my first venture into using the CLI, so any pointers would be appreciated.

Many thanks,
