SBS isn't perfect software, but it hasn't been known to make up stuff that's not on the server.
    I must admit I didn't test that far - obviously I wish I had done.

    You'd also need to do a delete and rescan, rather than a simple rescan, of course.

    Turned out that my problem was, as suggested, really all the .m3u and .cue files lying around in various folders. All I had to do was to search for all the files with these extensions, delete those that I didn't want, and rescan playlists only. Now everything is fine.

    Thank you all for all the help!

    Clientplaylists are just the tracks in the queue for each player, are these really what you wish to delete?

    Did not know about client playlists and players..

    I have been doing this manually with the duet remote control

    My Music -> Playlists -> (select playlist) -> delete playlist -> confirm delete

    rinse - lather - repeat (100+ playlists)

    Not so bad - I did this during a movie...I just am confused why this isn't a feature in the web ui ....

    Oh . . . those playlists, why would you want to delete all your playlists?

    You could delete the lot in one go from the folder where they're stored:

    Yes - I saw that, and new playlists wind up in the correct directory --

    What happened to me is a whoe group of "empty" playlists which show a different path - they belonged to another server setup, ---

    This is a new setup, but I tried to copy the old /var/lib folder into the new setup --- probably the source of the orphaned playlist entries...

    SO - I have only 20 or so entries left, so this house will be clean very soon ...
