The initial value will be present as MM will save it to the file and iTunes will read it off the file. After that the sync is via a bespoke "spot the change and update it" piece of code and grouping isn't on the list of attributes which are checked.A work around would be to manually delete the track in iTunes and let it resync afresh. You'd have to manually identify which tracks need to be updated though.
Unfortunately I have no plans to update in the near future either. Maybe later in the year when I have more time. Sorry, Mark
Well thanks for clarifying that point. I need look no further! I guess when I saw it sync the the first time, I assumed it would sync the second time ( after all, thats what syncing it all about). Manual updates would not work for me - too many changes . QUESTION
- Can you confrim which attirbutes ARE synced? Ie are Album?, Artist?, Album Artist?, Name/Title? Composer? Genre ?? COMMENT
- Depite its few limitations,, the plugin is a life saver! I never again want MM to touch my ipad again ( too many prior disasters). Updatiing the ipad via ITunes is a much better safer solution, hands down.REQUEST
- On the next update, just a suggestion to tweak the wording on the Delete window . When I did my last sync, It asked me to confirm if I wanted to "Delete 5100 of 7403 tracks? " ...and I was looking at 7403 tracks in MM. I had my options set correctly ( to delete on the deivce only), but it would be more reassuring if the Delete message would have said "Delete 5100 of 7403 tracks on remote device?"ISSUE
- I tried a full delete and refresh (not quite the syncing I had hoped for)..I manuualy delelted all the tracks in Itunes. Doing this should have clearly addressed the Grouping filed issue..but it did not.. must be some sort of caching going on there. In fact Album and Album Artist fileds still had old values. I am now trying deleting not only iTunes but the cache folder on the computer as well .
