Hey--

So I'm using my SlimServer and getting it to read from the iTunes XML file (thanks, Jesse!) and, although I'm still having playlist issues, I thought I'd give the iTunesUpdate script a shot as well. I have installed the plugin correctly and it's generating the iTunes_Hist.txt file; but when I go to run it on my windows machine, I get told: False match, and then "Track not found in iTunes."

Here's a relevant excerpt:
==logTrackToiTunesWin()
Searching iTunes for *John Coltrane Syeeda's Song Flute*
Found 2 track(s) in iTunes
Checking for: *\home\mp3\John Coltrane\Giant Steps\12 - Syeeda's Song Flute.mp3*

1 - False match: *\Spirit\mp3\John Coltrane\Giant Steps\John Coltrane - Syeeda's Song Flute (Giant Steps).mp3*
2 - False match: *\Spirit\mp3\John Coltrane\Giant Steps\12 - Syeeda's Song Flute.mp3*
Track not found in iTunes
==logTrackToiTunesWin()
Searching iTunes for *Elvis Costello Big Boys*
Found 1 track(s) in iTunes
Checking for: *\home\mp3\Elvis Costello\Armed Forces\Elvis Costello - Armed Forces (04) Big Boys.mp3*
1 - False match: *\Spirit\mp3\Elvis Costello\Armed Forces\Elvis Costello - Armed Forces (04) Big Boys.mp3*
Track not found in iTunes
==logTrackToiTunesWin()

I'm confident that the issue is in how I access my music from my Windows/iTunes setup (via Samba to a share on my music server: \\spirit\mp3) vs. how the Linux/SlimServer box sees it (/home/mp3) -- but I'm not sure how to address it.

Anyone have any ideas?

Configuration:
SlimServer and iTunesUpdate running on Linux, on machine: spirit
All music is accessible via /home/mp3;
the iTunes directory and files are stored in /home/itunes

/home/mp3 is samba-exported as mp3
/home/iTunes is samba-exported as itues

iTunes is running on a Windows PC.

Thoughts?

Thanks.
