Squeezebox Play Favorite Issue

Just moved Indigo to a new server and now the Play Favorite function has stopped working.
Everything else does seem to work though. I did notice the numbering of the favorites
in iPeng had changed so I did correct them in the Indigo actions but no joy.

Any idea what may have changed to keep it from working?

Thanks,

Carl

Hi Carl,
The best way to check the numbers is to use the LMS browser - see this post on Favorite Numbering :)

iPeng is one out in its numbering system as it start at 1 (one) whilst LMS starts at 0 (zero).

If you put in an incorrect favorite number then LMS just ignores it without giving any error :(
I will look at whether it is possible to alert the user to an error

Let me know if this suggestion fixes your problem :)

Re: Squeezebox Play Favorite Issue

Great tip. thanks. I got it working by deleting all the favs and adding them back in.
Seems they were in a sub folder On mysqueezebox.com. The new ones I added were not in that "folder".

Re: Squeezebox Play Favorite Issue

Do love your plugin!
I'm getting nowhere with Logitech support....might you know why I'm always getting
duplicate song files? It's a fresh machine with just one Music folder.
I've rescanned, cleared the caches etc many time.

It started out with 3 of each file, guess I'm getting somewhere getting it down to 2.

Any ideas appreciated!

Thanks,

Carl

Re: Squeezebox Play Favorite Issue

What version of the Logitech Media Server are you using?
You can find it in the Systems Preferences > Logitech Media Server > Information tab :)

It's 7.7.5.

The duplicates show in the LMS as well as in iPeng.

Many thanks,

Carl

Re: Squeezebox Play Favorite Issue

Hi Carl,
If there are duplicates in LMS, then I would expect to see them in iPenq as LMS contains the master DB which iPenq is accessing.

So the question is: why has LMS got duplicates?

The only thing I can think of is that you have got your music files folder specified twice.
Check in LMS > Settings> Basic Settings - How many media folders have you got specified - any duplicates there ?

I am using LMS 7.8.1 - I am not sure that using this would resolve your issue though as it seems a fairly basic problem.

Re: Squeezebox Play Favorite Issue

Tried 7.8.1 but same duplicates.

Think I might try deleting all the music files and start over.

Thanks,

Carl
