OK.  That may be what I do.  Thanks.

I know that.  But are radio station names accepted?  I figure a filename/path would work, but I don't know the path.

Can I start a radio station with /play?

Questions / Keyboard shortcuts for radio stations?

I'm setting up activities for a new Logitech Harmony remote.  It can send keystrokes to MusicBee.  But I need a predictable means to specify a radio station if that's the activity.  I was thinking it'd help if I could assign a sequence of keystrokes to trigger Station X.  Can it be done?

Are we talking about the same thing?  Also, I restart MusicBee really only after a reboot.

Questions / Too many tracks in database?
« on: February 26, 2018, 08:06:38 PM »
Continuing, I began to wonder if it's the size on my music collection causing problems.  I have enough tracks to play a different track for over a week continuously without stopping and never hear the same track twice.  I realized MusicBee's AutoDJ feature might not be able to deal with that many tracks.  The database itself doesn't seem to have any problems, but what about the DJ option?

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: Grouping by multiple fields

Better, although I'd rather see true multi-level grouping.  Think of it listing a group called "Michael W. Smith" with groups called "Live the Life" and "Healing Rain" inside that.

This image shows the definition of that custom field.

The artist Michael W. Smith has two albums in it.  "Sort Album Artist" isn't the same as the "Album Artist" field.  It's the custom field I mentioned that combines "Album Artist" with "Album Title".

The album title is simply ignored.

MusicBee Wishlist / Better photo discovery for the Now Playing tab needed
« on: February 21, 2017, 05:49:18 PM »
I commonly see Now Playing turn up artist photos for the wrong artist.  Some artists like Petra, Avalon, and Sierra are prone to errors.  Seems that those names are associated with multiple artists.  I tried to ban problem photos, but the ban option is either disabled or banning fails.

I'd also appreciate a means to add photos I found elsewhere such as scanning them from physical CD covers.  As is, such photos appear only in the tiny area I'd rather use for the album cover proper.  On a related note, can we hide the album cover in the left sidebar (outside Now Playing)?  It's usually a duplicate and smaller.  Finally, when the main Now Playing pane, when it shows the actual album cover, the space below for the album cover should be hidden.

MusicBee Wishlist / Grouping by multiple fields

I'd like to have two levels of grouping in the music library.  The first level would be "Album Artist" with "Album Title" below that.  That'd keep tracks from different artists whose albums just happen to have the same name separate.  As is, I tried to create a custom sort field with that combination and group by it.  But the result is that it groups by the Album Artist only.  That's wrong.

MusicBee Wishlist / Lyrics source field for each track
« on: February 21, 2017, 05:37:47 PM »
I'd like to know the source of lyrics that were downloaded.  With lyrics I find on Google, I prefix that with the domain where I found them surrounded by brackets ("[" and "]").  But there's no record for lyrics found by the program.  Setting this field to something other than what are supported by MusicBee would send a suggestion to Steven that it be added.  If he gets a lot of people setting the new field to "", perhaps he should add built-in support for that site.

On a related note, when I was using a client before I found MusicBee, I added "[not found]" or "[no lyrics found]" to the lyrics field if I couldn't find any.  Now that MusicBee has better support for lyrics, I'd like a quick way to search for tracks with the lyrics field set to one of those strings.  I can't do that yet.

Bot machines use one of three options depending on how close to Christmas it is.  Option one is the entire music library.  Option 2 filters out Christmas music.  Option 3 limits it to Christmas music.  Both of the latter options use Smart Playlists.

The server is stand alone?  So i'd lose Auto-DJ?  That'd be a deal breaker if Subsonic doesn't have something similar.
