Subject: Feature Request.... Random Playlist and Standard Play....
From: Chris Weakland (chrisweakland_at_comcast.net)
Date: 2002-11-04


I think it would be nice to have a menu feature for 'Random Play List' and
'Random Play'. I like to hear my playlists in random order b/c they contain
several hundred files. However some times Im listining to a song in the
playlist and I want to hear the next song on that album. So I hit stop and
using the 'Follow Playlist' feature Im placed into the current album's
directory. I then hit play and have to hit forward several times befor I
find the correct song. I would like it if after I hit stop on the current
song it would play the album in standard order 1...2...3...etc But since I
have it configured to random play it does not do this. It would also be nice
if when I hit stop from the playlist if it would 'follow playlist' and
'follow file order'. This would let you hit stop on a playlist and place you
in the current albums directory and place you on the song you stoped on in
the current album. Alternativly if you could some how easily turn off the
random feature durring playback this would do the same...problem with that I
would guess is were lacking buttons to work with :( could we use the power
on button?

Chris
