I'd like to hijack this thread somewhat. I'd never before bothered with 
mythmusic on the mythbox. But I just installed the .25beta and decided 
to enable all the plugins.

I transferred a copy of the 11Gig  'music' folder from here at work to 
the mythbox and fiddled. Getting it to *find* the music was easy. I have 
the music tree defined by composer (it's about 95% classical).

but I can't figure out how to make it play, nor even how to create one 
of these mythical 'playlists' of which you speak. The top of the screen 
shows a frame with a,b,c, etc. down the left and I can follow the 
arrows. But I have no idea *now* how I ended up with Handel's music in 
the bottom of the screen.

Can I buy a clue?


BTW to ALL the dev's:  JUST WOW! THANK YOU.
