Klaus, thanks. Am rushing off somewhere but will take your advice when I come back. I don't know why I didn't know you have to write 'start player', but all I can say is that the LC User Guide is good on callbacks but hopeless on other stuff... still, I know it's going to be my fault in the end (sigh).
