    Music select module question

    Is it possible to change the select music module so I when I pick Artist I then get a list of albums? I really don't want a list of tracks. I want a list of albums. I usually can navigate better by album, and if an artist has 200 tracks I don't want to scroll through them all to find a particular album. Genre-Artist-Album picking would also be helpful.

    Also, when selecting Artist, Album, etc, would it be possible to draw a letter on the screen, and the list would then jump to the first Artist, Album, etc that has that letter as the first letter?

    I know the search function is supposed to help drill down to find artists and songs, but unless the search returns albums the search function returns too many results.

    Thanks.

    bump this post, still looking for an answer...

    My personal opinion about the interface, it should look like the interface menus of the XP Media Center Edition. The reason why... Many people are used to it! Microsoft did a research too just like someone did for the gesture interface))

    Music selection

    For right now, I just use the directory feature to do what you are talking about. It would be better to set the software to always remember that as a preference or change it to do Artist => Album => Tracks which would be ideal for me. I wish I could also remove some of the selections from the Home menu or at least rearrange them. Besides that, it some slick looking software!

    You can completely rearrange the home screen with the built in skin editor.

    List jumping with gestures may be supported in the future. Other ways of selecting media probably won't. The WMP SDK will be exposed in the StreetDeck SDK so things like that can still be possible by writing a script.
