Subject: RE: Queue functions (was Re: file menu)
From: Gvillo, Mike (MXG_at_dolby.com)

Love the queue function.

Abhor the implementation.

I use the queue function to play parties, road trips or make my own
radio station at home or at work. The on-play button combo is horrible,
it's IMPOSSIBLE to queue more than 15 songs without screwing up and
losing the whole list.

 I do the same thing. It'd be nice if the Queue function was actually
more accessible, say, mappable to a single button instead of having to
navigate through two menus. I don't use it to create playlists.
Actually, I typically have the Jukebox playing a shuffled entire HD
playlist. When I queue something, I'm not wanting to modify the
playlist, just to add a song to listen to after the one going is
finished. The Iriver IMP100 I used to use did this, though it didn't
allow multiple queues, which would be nice as well.
