I have had a search and cant find the answer to the above.
I would like to try getting the LMS to undertake the conversion of FLAC to WAV format rather than relying on the Touch. I guess this must be possible as I see in the LMS/settings/advanced tab then File Types there are a number of options under the FLAC and WAV settings. Cant say I understand what they do though. A previous post indicated that the first match takes precedence but I still dont see WHAT selections to make - perhaps I am being dense??
My current settings are:-
Is there a writeup on these settings anywhere? And how do I change them (or others) to force the LMS to do the conversion??
Thanks in advance

? But this is actually a non problem or a self inflicted one , there is rarely a piont in changing anything in file types from the default settings . Especially as this usually brings out unpredictable transcoding issues in other situations .
The WAV is better than FLAC myth is hard to kill and this q is also answered many times so a simple search will bring out answers
The solution is actually to not get LMS to convert FLAC to WAV in other words do nothing but enjoy the music !--------------------------------------------------------------------
