Sonos Play1 and Zipato

just got started with Sonos and have a question/problem. I integrated the speaker with my Zipato home automation system, so it can play files when an event occurs. My first project was to make a doorbell. I saved an MP3 file on my network server, and when someone presses the doorbell, this should play.

This works OK, until I play another song/file. Then when someone rings the doorbell, the doorbell file plus the other song/file starts to play. It seems it is building a queue, and when an event happens, instead of just playing the file, it plays that queue.

The command I send is: x-file-cifs:\\My Passport\Files\Doorbell\doorbell.mp3

Any idea how I can prevent a queue forming or playing when I just want it to play 1 file?

Thanks for the help!
