A client of mine made a lot of nose about this, and I just said.. "Yea... That's annoying."

When you have a DDR in play/pause/cue mode, switching between list and selection playback mode reverts the playback status to stop. I'm always having to put the player in that mode twice, because I'm invariably in list mode, and forget to set it to selection before putting in in play/pause/cue.

Why does switching playback from list to selection HAVE to turn of play/pause/cue?

The complexity here is that changing status has to yank the rug out from under the playlist, so it knows for sure what is listed or selected. It is such a major change that it really is necessary to revert to stop.

There are too many variables at play, and leaving it in Cue mode when you change playlist status could result in seemingly unpredictable behavior, Bob.

Hope that helps,
