    Browse by genre would be nice if it's not already supported (didn't see it). I guess creating a playlist for each would accomplish the same thing, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to make them.

    yeah, there is power to the overhead light, but it would be too difficult and obvious to tap into it. I was trying to keep it hidden. So a light activated switch would be ideal.

    Oh, ok. I only looked at local stores (Best Buy, etc) because I needed it in a hurry. They were charging $100 for Home, and $200 for Pro Upgrade, $300 for Pro full. Either way, it's a rip off.
