I'm a long-time Sonos user who finally got fed up with all their pointless fiddling about with the control application and decided to try something else - I bought a Node 2i before Christmas and am so far very happy with it!
There are a couple of features that I think would be useful - it would be great if consideration could be given to adding them in a future release:
1) Automatic library reindexing at a specified time
This is something I used on my Sonos - you could set it to reindex your library at a given time every day. I had mine set up to reindex at 2am every morning, which meant I never needed to do a manual reindex. I find reindexing on BluSound is actually slightly slower than it was on Sonos (for the same size library), so the ability for it to happen automatically at convenient times would be great.
2) Adding the option for IR remote control of random and repeat
The ability to control the Node with my universal remote is great - I actually built an Arduino-based IR controller for my Sonos to be able to do this, and having IR control out of the box is really useful. But I'd like a couple more commands - the ability to control play modes like random and repeat from the universal remote would be really helpful.
Either or both of the above would be much appreciated! Many thanks in advance.
