Out of curiosity I synced an old SM-T800 Samsung Galaxy Tab S. Unlike my phone, all the of the same playlists synced perfectly.

It has the same mma version as my phone, 1.3.9.0924. But the OS is set to manually update and has Android 6.0.1 Kernel version 3.4.39-13786509, last updated Dec 28, 2018

The phone that will not sync playlists is SM-G960U1 last updated June 4, 2020 with software version G960U1UES7DTE1/G960U1OYM7DTE1.

So I'm back in business as long as I don't update my tablet before the sync bug gets fixed.

Forget my hint.
You don't have to accept a suggestion.

"update your MMA: last beta-version = 1.4.0.0931"


I have no idea how to do this on my Android phone. I have auto update turned on. When I go to the Play store, it says everything there is installed and current.

When I comb through the mma options, all I see is an option "Register for test builds." If that's where I'm supposed to go, I am very leery. I don't want to be a test bed because I depend on Media Monkey to produce a three hour radio show every week. I can't afford to get thrown off track with beta testing and related issues (and things like this damn sync bug).

I have been relishing the enhanced radio programming capabilities MediaMonkey gives me and grown dependent on it through many years of excellent use. But things are starting to look increasingly shaky and I need dependability.

Hello terryo,

update your MMA: last beta-version = 1.4.0.0931

However, there are still problems with playlists.
MMW copies music files and / or changed tags to handy: OK - I have checked it
MMW copies complete playlists to handy: OK - I have checked it

MMA scanner does not link new entries in some playlists to the source.
This is why MMA shows fewer music files in some playlists.

...
There was a bug with incomplete lists when special characters are used in filenames and it should be fixed in 1911 once it gets out.
It was in my area. With activation in MMW Tools> Options> Library ... Tags & Playlists ..
"Use Unicode (UTF-8 encoding) for music playlists" corrected this misbehavior.

Yesterday evening (28.07.2020) I downloaded three new music files from YouTube,
edited them in MMW and added them to a playlist (YXZ).

SYNC step by step:
MMA is closed.
MMW is closed
connect handy with USB cable to laptop
open MMW
click in MediaTree on HANDY - Auto-Sync
i wait until synchronization is finished
close MMW

open MMA on my handy
scanner works - I wait until it stops scanning
there are also the three new music files
there are also all playlists
in a certain playlist (XYZ) there are 3 entries less than in MMW
close MMA

open on Laptop Windows Explorer - Handy - Playlists
copy the faulty playlist (XYZ) to laptop
open this playlist with EDITOR
copy content in MS-Word
the playlist (XYZ) in MMA contains the same number of entries as in MMW
MMA scanner does not link new entries in some playlists to the source.
This is why MMA shows fewer music files in some playlists.
I think, the database in MMA does not yet know about the 3 new music files and therefore cannot link them with the playlist.

Maybe you should refresh the MMA database after transferring the music files and / or tags.
Only then copy playlists from MMW => MMA ?????????????????????
Before this BUG is not cleared, I will not spend a cent on the MMA Pro version.

SOLUTION:
- in MMW just move an order in the relevant playlists
- then synchronize again
- Strangely, all playlists on the phone are synchronized with MMW.

Playlist sync is now completely inoperable, rendering MediaMonkey 75% useless to me. I have been struggling with the playlist sync for months, and for many weeks, limping by with the trick of deleting a few tracks from playlists to prod a sync. As of today, none of the playlists sync anymore. I tried both wireless and wired. I changed the array of playlists checked to sync when wired and retried sync, both wired and wireless. No change. The music moves over, but I can only find the added tracks using the search function in mma. HELP! This function is vital to my work as a radio DJ!

mmw 4.1.28.1910
mma 1.3.9.0924

All Win 10 & Android to current versions and updates

Hi,
I am still not being able to replicate your problem. MMW controls how playlists are sent to MMA and do analyze sync list based on MMA request.

There was a bug with incomplete lists when special characters are used in filenames and it should be fixed in 1911 once it gets out.

I know you already supplied bunch logs and pictures, but it is very very strange that we can't replicate.

I sent you PM with more details.

Version 1.4.0.0931 does not solve the problem either.

Re: [bug] Playlists don't update with the last changes when synced

Neverending story - I give up.
I'm waiting for the next MMA 1.4.x.xxxx beta.
If that doesn't solve the problem, I'll switch to a working player.
And I'm definitely not going to wait for MMA 2.x where the problems start over.

Unfortunately this Sunday's sync saw the return of the problems with the playlists not being correctly updated. :(

So today everything synced perfectly. I noticed there was an update to MMA on the 18th of June. It's possible I had this update roll out for me last week and it fixed things. :)

This is not a solution but a (manual and time-consuming) workaround.
This bug still persists.
Yes that's true.

My experiences:
Tag synchronization MMA -> MMW:
YES: Title, Album, Rating
NO: Artist (s), Genre, Composer (s)
Sometimes YES, Sometimes NO: Played/PlayCounts, Release date
Syncing playlists does not work without problems (MMW => MMA)

Hi,
Better metadata bi-di sync is addressed in MMA 2.0 and should be improved further once MM5 gets out and we start MMA 2.0 testing.
I don't think MMA 1.x.x will change much.
MMA has been around since May 2018 and there are still fundamental problems.

I would like to add that it seems that the above behavior also goes for ratings. When I remove a rating in MMW and those files are already on MMA as part of a playlist the old ratings will still show in MMA.

Playlists only sync reliably after deletions. Additions often don't show up.

by terryo » Fri Jun 12, 2020 10:12 am

mma 1.3.8.0916
mmw 4.1.28.1905

Playlists on my Samsung S9 only sync reliably when I delete an entry in mmw. Additions without a deletion do not show up. This started about 2-3 months ago and I only now experimented with the problem long enough to see the consistent pattern. All playlists, including 'recently added' function like this.
