[mythtv-users] MythMusic - Is there a simple way to just tell it to play an album?

>Ha Ha. I said sensible idea :) You can browse the directory tree and add
the tracks below the current node/directory to the active playlist, that was
one of >the concessions added to keep the peace. Little good it did me :(.
That's something probably only available in 0.26 though

I hadn't found that in 0.26, but now that you mentioned it, it is working
well.  Really, the only things missing to me (and I was one of the biggest
"anti MythTV 0.25 playlist focused" people out there) is

1. Music should remember you last view when entering it.  i.e. if I exited
music viewing the gallery view, it should open to the gallery view when I go
back into it.

2. Everything (playlist edits, current view, etc) should be saved when you
exit Music, not when you ("gracefully", which most people with button
scripts don't) exit MythTV as a whole.  Very frustrating to do a bunch of
stuff, shutdown your system for the night (using the MYTHTV exit > yes, exit
and shutdown, not some "ad-hoc" method) only to find that it's all gone.
