Re: MM5 lockup with blank window

They will probably need a debug log to diagnose the problem that you are reporting.

See item 4b from this post.

Re: How To Transfer MM4 Database To Another Computer With MM5

OK. So run MM4 and MM5 together, then once it has converted, copy the MM5 database over? close :D Read my first post again. ... after MM5 has made it's own converted copy your MM4 db, run the MM5 database backup ... it will save an export copy of the MM5 db. Then copy the MM5 backup to the MM5 data...

Re: How To Transfer MM4 Database To Another Computer With MM5

By the way. I don't have MM4 on the laptop that is running MM5, so I will have to manually copy it over. I wonder if there is an import function with MM5. You won't have to copy MM4 to your new computer if you temporarily install MM5 on your old computer, to perform the conversion of your MM4 db. M...

Re: How To Transfer MM4 Database To Another Computer With MM5

I have MM4 on my old desktop PC with years of data on the MM4 database. At this point in time, I don't want to install MM5 on my desktop PC. My guess is that it is still probably the simplest way of achieving the end result that you want. You could delete MM5 from the desktop PC immediately after. ...

Re: How To Transfer MM4 Database To Another Computer With MM5

How do I transfer my MM4 database over to another computer running MM5 without causing problems? There are multiple ways to achieve this. One hands-off method would to be try the new backup|restore database feature in MM5. Assuming that you are happy with the MM5 database on your old PC: install MM...

Is this issue on you your TODO list ... or it working as designed? ... I don't like it. I started a new thread since the previous thread isn't getting much love. Is it toxic for some reason? The issue is that the search syntax is unavailable in a collection's sub-node. It is advertised, by tooltip, ...

web link problems not handled well [#16159]

This version seems more robust. There seems to be some problem with a web link, which MM5 does not handle well. And your problem resolution dbox never seems to work properly. 1. clicking this link causes MM5 to freeze ... it seems to be connected to this crash 2. I pressed the Restart button on the ...

Re: 2213 - GPM sync performance seriously degraded

As per the Mantis report, I confirm that an empty playing queue works around the performance degradation.
The Scan log is still appears to be broken ... not that it was any use in its previous state ... too much detail; no actionable information.

As its tooltip says: "Describes any other directories that should be scanned for media" Thanks, but I read that tooltip before opening this thread. It didn't add to my understanding.

Re: 2213 - sync to device

Thanks for the info. I agree that these are not mainstream facilities, but they are hard to understand. #1 this generates playlists for albums when you selected albums on sync-list. If you selected artists then it generates playlists for artists. I agree that this is not clear much, it is a very old...

These icons are not populated by a sync ... sometimes they are invisible, which is an issue I reported eralier ... but even if they are visib...
