Showing same scenario also in other rooms ?

1. finish your scenario in Scenario Wizard
2. go to Advanced - Scenarios and find your scenario and click on it - you'll get also ticks for other rooms..



This is particularly useful if you have complex scneario with more commands to various devices - repeating all those clicks would be inconvenient.

Start playing playlist in certain Audio zone (doesn't work!)

1. go to Advanced Scenario Wizard
2. add MH Play Media command for Media_Plugin (child of DCERouter)
3. add Filename (#13 Filename (string) ) and Entertainment Area (#45 PK_EntertainArea (string) ).



I have sniffed DCERouter when I start playlist from Orbiter and tried to mimic that command being send, but it doesn't work. Anyone with more insight how to do this properly ?
