I seem to be able to generate MusicIP mixes just fine, and play them too. What doesn't seem to work well is that on both iPeng and the Controller, I can't get to see the playlist; it's just blank.
(And just to confound me, when I tried to recreate this situation just now, it didn't happen - I can see the generated playlist just fine. NO idea what I did that might have been different from the times when I can't see the playlist. In both cases today (didn't work / worked) I created the mix from the device itself.)
Also, there seems to be the occasional disharmony between MusicIP and SqueezeServer, in that MIP seems to choose tracks that SS can't find. Yet I run the MIP GUI fairly frequently to analyse newly-added tracks, then quit that, visit the MusicIP control web page and reload the cache, which then *seems* to get picked up the next time I do a scan in SS. This almost sounds like I should wipe either or both of MIP / SS's caches, but I'm fearful that if I do that I might never get MusicIP to work again!
Does anyone know what's going wrong? Has anyone else seen these problems? Know how to fix them?

Quirky MusicIP behaviour with Controller and iPeng

I had missing tracks like that when I accidentally didn't use the same paths on ReadyNas. I mistakenly built the MusicIp library using a different path to the same directory. I rescanned using the correct path so I had everything listed twice since I didn't want to rescan everything (it took a week the first time!).
The behavior was that lists would be incomplete, like 4 songs instead of 10, but when I played them it would find them all somehow.
I don't know how this would happen under Windows, unless you use a lot of shortcuts and mounted folders and such, but it sounds similar to my problems.

Hmmm, could be; I have moved stuff around occasionally (my music being split over two drives).
Curious though that I've never had missing tracks when using MIP under the SS webiface, but often do (or can't even view the whole playlist, yet some tracks do play) on the Controller and iPeng.
I've always archived the MIP analysis to the files, so maybe it'd be OK to wipe the MIP cache and start over... ? (But it would take a loooong time if I'm wrong...)
