Re: Syncing with certain settings stops

yes I will have a full log to view. I guess the next step is to raise a ticket? and attach it? Although I don't think it will be much help Highlights are above....there really seems to be nothing of note between trundle and burst modes. I'm not playing any tracks this time so it's clearer that nothi...

Re: Syncing with certain settings stops

Currently in nowheresville. will edit this post in an hour or so onece I see if it resumes @260 ish (again) the transfer (Preparing list) has stopped doing anything.

Re: Syncing with certain settings stops

just downloaded and installed the latest build plus debug version and reconnected my hard disk to the raid controller. I've initiated a sync to this disk In Debug viewer. I stopped debug viewer after I had not seen any track names listed (that were being synchronised) for a very long time I observed...

Re: Playback hangs and loops

Aren't the files FLAC? There was a FLAC tagging regression introduced in 1873, please upgrade to 1875 for sure. I converted any flac files I had, wma too, ages ago. they seemed to cause problems when streaming to my amp so they had to go. I pretty much just have mp3's now Are the tracks located on ...

Re: Syncing with certain settings stops

OK, so "frozen process" is just a non blocking timer that kicks off a message saying the process seems frozen and I should not worry about that particular thing....although the sync process can and has completed without this message. When it does show it can be left for yonks and it still doesn't ge...

Re: Synchronized playback multiroom [#7090]

Further to the earlier Yamaha mention that sounds quite dismal...I can confirm Yamaha music cast products can be made to work reliably with smart choices. The caveats most likely apply to other product (brands) that are available as they come down to transmission methods. The software, for me, hasn'...

Re: Playback hangs and loops

I've experienced this many times in the past, always when modifying the ID3 tags (setting the rating) or changing Artist names. I've sort of come to accept there will be some problems but I've just updated to 4.1.21.1873 (current version) and the issues I experience have taken on a more predictable ...

Re: Syncing with certain settings stops

Hi, with so many threads relating to syncing I thought I'd pick a more recent one to send a bit of info that may help diagnose another unreliability cause. It is sort of related but so as not to hijack someone else's thread....here's something to check... Windoze will have filesystem issues when fil...

Re: Rating suggestions

Not sure how you add a picture, total noob here. At any rate I took a screenshot. Select a track, right click, go to the [My rating] submenu. second from the bottom [ O" | 0 Stars ] . Followed by [ | Unknown ] Speaking of Right clicking. I imagine if you override the right click event for the rating...

Re: Rating suggestions

Add Rating to the columns then you simply click the rating you want My suggestions are not fixable with a view adjustment (to the best of my knowledge) I already have a ratings column. You cannot set a zero ("O") rating via this column I assume this is something you've never done and therefore do n...

Re: Alexa remote

Sorry, I forgot to mention a couple of things in my original post. I mentioned streaming players because I have some (yamaha musiccast amps). Under "Options->Player" there is an option to "Choose player" and set it to use the UPnP/DNLA Renderer which can be pointed at any of these amps to stream mus...

Rating suggestions

There's a couple of functions I'd like to see 1) on the Main player view, Column browser, please include a "No rating"/"Unknown" selection (like you have under Music->Rating in the tree view). It makes sense that the two routes should include the same options...and it would assist people in trying t...

Re: Alexa remote

I'm aware of plex and tried it. First thing I found out was it doesn't do requests by Genre?? It seems to miss a lot of the basics (hence my giving a lot of examples). I've also tried some Media Monkey remotes (which is why I'm certain the framework is there to implement Alexa skills)...but they've ...
