    Music Box 4 - M3U files and Genres

    Just installed Music box 4. Love it! Just a couple of questions :

    1. Can you select a genre? It doesn't look like it.
    2. Can you import M3U files? I've exported my playlists from iTunes but don't know what to do with them.

    Thanks

    Select Options from the hidden menu and you can scroll through and select a genre.

    If you have any M3U files within your Library, MB will pick them up during a scan - then use Alt+G to scroll through the various MB views - fourth view should show your playlists.

    So do the M3U files just go in the music root folder?

    That's where I keep mine... but you could keep them in a "Playlists" folder...

    M3U/PLS/CUE files can be anywhere in the file system that MB4 scans. However I keep them together too, I think it is easier to manage them externally this way. Note that any files outside the MB4 library can still be in the playlist but they won't be searchable.

    As a follow up to ACTCMS's comment, Alt-G is also Green on remotes that have it, and it is available as Playlist on the hidden menu.
