Great thanks.

And not to be selfish but if you could fit that play all button in there somewhere would save me having to reprogram an exisitng button.

Speaking of which the shuffle works great as it toggles, but by looking at it on screen, you cant tell if it is on or off is there away to make it highlight if it is on or something.

Thanks for all the effort and time you must have to generally put into this.

You want the play all button on the Search Music screen?

And I fixed the shuffle button so it looks pressed down now whenever its on.

Almost - it is really an 'up' button. With the new structure, the top-level might show a Frank Sinatra folder. I use Open to see all of his albums. I pick an album, using Open again to see the songs.

Now I may want to pick either another Sinatra album, or something else completeley. I'd need an 'up' button to go back to Frank, then press it again to go back to the top.

If that won't work then a button to go back to the root would be workable..

So what screen would you like it to be on? The search music one? Or just on the quick view and albums screens?

Would like the play all on the quickview screen if possible to save having to go into the sub menu.

Although i am planning to use xlobby mainly from my ppc which i should have in about a week, could it be accessible on the ppc screens as well?

Im off on holiday for a week so wont be able to look at the forum until i am home.

I think the quick view and albums screens make the most sense. If you are searching for a particular artist, you sort of already know where you are going. But if you are just browsing, it's more like you're in a store and want to navigate around.

At the same time in addition to an 'up' button it might be helpful to have a 'root' or 'main' button that would bring you back to the root of your music.

As it stands now, if I venture into a particular arist - even if I go to the home screen and back into music, there's no way to get to the top..

thanks!

In that latest download I just posted a link to did you copy over the new xlobby2sd.exe to the client that was in that zip file? And also check that the servers.txt is updated to the new format.

Does any screen in particular seems to be slow? I know quite a few people are having the problem where when you click on a button to go to another screen, it doesn't show the new screen unless you tap somewhere on the screen to refresh it.

Your right its the double click problem.. and even then it acts a little wonky. Sometimes a double click is a triple click.

I hope there is a fix?
