Press play from recently added. If the device where the content resides is... - joebrady - 2013-01-24

Problem: Press play from recently added. If the device where the content resides is not available, the GUI will pop up a "busy" dialog but will silently fail.

Solution: Tell the user why it failed and perhaps an helpful tip, for example if we know its a remote device e.g. "Was unable to find the content, is device X turned on and connected to the network?"

from jm:

This is symptomatic of a larger problem where we have multiple methods of starting playback (e.g. via playlistplayer or via some builtin). IIRC if it's started through the playlist player then it'll pop up an OK dialog with an error (usually fairly vague).

Cheers,
Jonathan
