    I loaded FX4.0 yesterday and the buttons would not appear until I ran the cursor over it. I was running FX3.0 fine. I was about to reinstall Flash but turns out after I changed the colors for the buttons everything was ok.

    On top of that you have a LOT more power now! You browse by artist for instance. Select say, "John Cougar", and then hit play select. It will play every single song that you have in your collection for all of his albums, as well as songs that are on any compilation album.

    You can then browse by genre, select Rock, and hit play select. It will play every song in your collection in the genre "rock"

    NONE of these require you to make any playlists in any way.

    What you probably did not know, with the "old" browser, when you played an album, it did indeed create a playlist in the background, whats called an "On the fly playlist". This is how RR keeps track of the songs on that album. Try adding a album with the old browser, and you will see the playlist contains: xx songs above the album art

    My system does not work this way. Is there some setting that needs to be activated for this to work? When I hit play select after doing a searck for say 'pink floyd', only the highlighted song will play. Same as with the whole list. If the whole music library is displayed and i hit play select, only the highlited selection will play. I cannot select all and play select.

    You're not talking about the same thing. In John's case he's listing his music by artist and then hitting 'play selected' which will load all the music sorted under that artist. In your case you're picking a specific song within a search result, and that will only load that song.

    Machinehead is correct. The search results screen and the browser screen are two different things and work differently. In the browser screen you can browse through genres, artists, folders, etc. and when you find one you want to play you hit play select and the artist, album, folder, etc will be loaded into a new playlist.

    If instead of browsing you want to search for an artist, album, etc. you hit search and that will display your search results. Your search results are not a playlist and can only be played one at a time. In order to play your search results you need to hit manage playlist and then load the playlist that says [searchresults]. Now your search results are in a playlist that you can use like any other playlist.

    Do you have John's hacked version? If not, it's somewhere on his site

    The reason that this was done this way is because when you do a search, you might be only looking for one song and if you end up with a large results list you can just skim through and just play the song you were looking for. On the other hand you can also search for all songs by an artist, ect.. then just just load that results playlist, or better yet if you search for an 'Hip-Hop' genre you can make a Hip-hop disk. Other reason being that there was no more room for any more buttons, as John has told me a-many times...

    I do realize that this does work a bit different than the typical user might expect and to be expected with such powerful features at your fingertips, but once you get the hang of it, you should start to see how versital it is to use..
