Thanks for clarifying that.  I don't want to lose UPnP and had assumed 
that your example was a basic config that would be expanded if 
necessary.  That was where one of the 'instances' lurked.

I think I ought to properly 'retire' my old, typo-based, extra backend 
names first, though.  And revisit 'master backend overrides', which will 
'stream and delete files if it finds them in a storage directory'.  That 
sounds dangerous to me;  I probably have the wrong end of the stick.

Cheers, and thanks again.
