Stop the music!

Ever want to stop the music for a moment to get the attention of a family member or housemate, and allow them to hear you, or for you to hear them? AllQuiet provides an easy way to pause the music on all Squeezebox players. Once invoked, all players will display a message indicating they've been paused. Players that are "off" or "idle" will only show the message for a number of seconds; players that are "on" will show the message until a user uses the left arrow key to back out of the message, or until the When Idle screensaver kicks in.

Remote control usage

Used with a remote control, AllQuiet displays a message like "Paused by Family Room" to indicate where the person is who has paused the music. To pause the music with a remote control, you simply hold the Sleep button. To make this possible, you must edit the IR/ file to map "sleep.hold" to AllQuiet. Change the one line reading

sleep                                  = sleep
to the following set of lines:
sleep.single                           = sleep
sleep.repeat                           = dead
sleep.hold                             = modefunction_PLUGIN.AllQuiet::Plugin->allquiet
and change each of the two lines reading
sleep                                  = dead
to the following set of lines:
sleep.single                           = dead 
sleep.repeat                           = dead
sleep.hold                             = modefunction_PLUGIN.AllQuiet::Plugin->allquiet

CLI usage

AllQuiet provides a new CLI command, allquiet. This command requires one argument, the message to display on the players.
