Welcome to the Extreme User group !If I may… it would be great to be able to perform a search just on history. And select songs in history and move to a playlist. And in a historical search, being able to restrict to “last 3 (6, 12) months” etc. I worked in software development at Microsoft many years back, and for the startup that made the chip Apple used in the original iPods, so I know adding a feature might sound trivial, but there is a lot to it.
I don’t even have a dog in this hunt yet, my extreme isn’t due for several more weeks. Still, being able to make use of the list in history is lacking in Roon, so a wish list item for me. Not sure how others feel — I recognize not all requests end up in the code.
For me a big missing piece in TAS / LMS functionality is a history file / journal. A useful, easy to access, and extract history file to either load in the queue or be the basis for a play list, is definitely a feature which is on the list.
Export of Roon Playlists is also firmly on the list
Friendly interface to search is also a high priority goal.
The Taiko software strategy is simple, if we can't find the code to do the job we want, we will code it ! Software bloat is something we have all seen and suffered, but XDMS is a long long way from getting even close to that.
When it comes to search on streaming services we are very dependent on how each streaming service implements its search engine. Roon has done a very nice job of integrating its search across Qobuz and Tidal. Our ambitions down the road are to access global music databases and then to look for availability on various streaming services.
What is also coming is a customer service application that will run on MAC, PC and Tablets that will allow access to the Extreme Desktop, check for software updates, and ease the housekeeping of the home network.
Well functioning software needs a stable OS, and that what we have with the Extreme firmware and OS
