Thanks for the replay.
As far as placing the playlist anywhere I will have to try again. I thought the I read somewhere on this forum that the path directive in the mt-daapt.conf file is not being used anymore. Is this the case?
Since I ‘uslung’ my external drive to ‘disk1’, then at boot time, when the mt-daapd deamon starts, disk1 should be visable, right? And there should be able to read the playlist list file from anywhere on the ext drive.
