Idea: Playback return from config windows
#1
At the top of the config windows is a tab menu for...Library Audio Network System ...

Can we add 'Playback' to that instead of having to mouse-top-left and click several times (depending on how far drilled down we are into Audio etc)
like the old tabs at the bottom in previous releases

And could the player boot up to show the Playback screen rather than the System?

that's odd....mine always boots to the playback tab.....I thought that was the default behaviour... Smile

Yes it seems odd to me that both my players (using 5.0-RC0) boot to the System screen. Have I missed a setting somewhere? Or do I need to move to RC1?

Jonners,

It remembers your last screen... if you were in the System Menu and you reboot, you came back to that System Menu. If you were in playback mode, you would turn to playback...

Agreed, if I reboot it returns to the last screen. But if I power down completely it returns to the System screen.

Weird. It doesn't do that here, and I tried several settings when booting (while playing, playing stopped, auto-play on/off....)

I do have one question: do you use a web-page to display the UI or do you use a direct HDMI connection?

In case you use a web-page and you type in the IP addy of your PI, your PC doesn't automatically add the "sys-config.php" txt (or another txt from another menu) to the IP address, does it?
Because in that case, yeah, you would end up with a menu each time.
Just a question...

Thanks, that was it, good thinking! The IP address was remaining at moode.local, but after I set a new bookmark from the Player page it now boots back to that page.

we seem to have moved a little away from the original post so at the risk of re-railing the thread here is it repeated... Wink

Playback wouldn’t be appropriate as you may not be returning to the playback screen. We used to have Exit for a bit, and could do that in the future depending on Tim’s schedule, but really we need to redo the configuration section as it’s old and slow.

As a developer though while replacing it would be ideal it’s the kind of thing where as clunky as the current system is it works, and most people interact with it very rarely, and it’d require a significant investment of time, so it’s hard to justify. If anyone is looking for a Summer coding project though... Wink
