Re: UNDO! (ctrl-Z)

Thanks Erwin, that looked promising but not what I'm looking for - that option determines whether the confirmation appears or not. What I'm asking for is that the default option on that popup be set to NO rather than YES.

Re: UNDO! (ctrl-Z)

Played around with this some, I think I misunderstood the current behavior. When you delete the playlist, it does prompt you with "are you sure...". The problem (for me) was - the default selection is YES, so if you hit enter without looking (as I did) your list is gone. I think generally, the stand...

UNDO! (ctrl-Z)

The scenario is - I'm editing a playlist. The intention is to delete a song from the list. But I don't notice which panel has the focus, and instead delete the whole playlist. This appears to be not recoverable. What a drag. Is there a way to recover, or do we need the UNDO? Thanks. Update: Now to a...

Re: MM installation corrupted - UI columns erratic

Hmmm - good suggestion. It does seem to be a network issue - works fine with a local DB file. I thought it might be a firewall issue (I use ZoneAlarm) but shut it down and no change. I learned a couple of years ago to not run MM on 2 computers on the network at the same time - the usual symptom is t...

Re: MM installation corrupted - UI columns erratic

Yes, several times. Another clue - it's apparently not able to write to a config file somewhere: - every time on startup I get the Win 7 system message "do you want to allow this program to make changes to your computer?" (Shouldn't do that except after installation or upgrade) - I get this error me...

Re: MM installation corrupted - UI columns erratic

Major clue, may not be an installation issue - if after I click on a column header I hit the ESC key it clears it - behaves normally after that...

MM installation corrupted - UI columns erratic

Something is BAD wrong with my MM installation - tried a full ininstall/reinstall and no change. The UI on my main window is acting bizarre - when I click on the column headers to sort (album, date, etc) it gets into some sort of edit mode, where instead of doing the sort function it wants to move i...

Re: podcast downloads - single episode fail

...and now, the episode I was having the recent trouble with just fixed itself. Never seen it go this way, actually. Took it about 4 days after the episode was published.

Re: podcast downloads - single episode fail

Can you manually download it using your Browser? Depends on how you mean it: Can I go to the podcast website and download it as an MP3? Yes. Can I grab the file URL from the MM file properties, paste that into the browser and download from there? I don't know - the file properties dialog is grayed ...

podcast downloads - single episode fail

Hello, I manage a number of podcasts with MMW, and update daily to download the latest episodes for each - 99% of the time, without issue. Every now and then, a single episode will fail to download - and pops up an error saying "Socket Error 10061 connection refused". The problem is, that once a par...

Re: Deleted files aren't removed on sync (MMA)

Thanks, that did it. I did find those 2 options when I was first looking for this but the wording of the menu options and the help tips is very confusing... "Delete unselected files and playlists from the device, even if copies don't exist on the server"... What does unselected mean? When I do a syn...

Deleted files aren't removed on sync (MMA)

I must be missing something: I update all my podcasts on the MMW/Media Server. This of course, downloads a bunch of new files, and also deletes a bunch of expired ones. When I do the update on the MMA, the new files are synced/downloaded to the device, but the deleted files are not deleted. Spent 15...

Re: MM shutdown with network error

I'm bumping this post, because I've found the same headache in a different scenario: I run MM portable on an external hard drive, and if you happen to disconnect that hard drive before shutting down MM you get the same lengthy, painful series of error messages prior to shutdown. Seems that an easy f...

General MMA questions (MMW user)

Hello, Long-time user of MMW, and considering expanding use to MMA on a Samsung tablet. I'm not real savvy with with portable/apps stuff in general, I have some questions specifically about the MM app, after toying with the trial version for a few days: - I found on another thread that MMA does not ...

MM shutdown with network error

I run MM on a windows machine, with a network connection to the media server where the music library lives. In a perfect world I would never do this, but occasionally I do absentmindedly shut down the server machine, forgetting that my MM session is still active on the other computer. When this happ...
