#11237 assigned Bug Report - General

frontend's play program network_control message gives misleading error messages

If you send a misformatted starttime to the frontend's play program command it gives you error messages like "ERROR: You are in playbackbox mode and this command is only for playback mode".

The problem is the test that checks for a play program command also validates it and, on a failure, falls through to the complaint about modes.

The patch disentangles the test and validation parts returns accurate error messages.

Bill, can you review if this is still applicable / relevant?
