View Full Version : Internet Music Favorites Wierdness

I've been having really strange problems with my Favorites the past few days (I think since about Sunday's nightly image). Have not tried the nightly from last night; the last two versions have had this problem, though. WinXP box.

Here's an example of "strange":

Favorites in order:
radioIO - Acoustic
radioIO - Eclectic
Folk Alley
Radio Paradise
SkyFM - Smooth Jazz

I can confirm this order in the Plugins->Favorites.

However, tonight, I cannot get SkyFM to play on Favorite #5. If I press and hold #5, Folk Alley plays! (If I press and hold #3, Folk Alley also plays.)

Last night, I could not get Folk Alley to play at all via the Favorites, but it would play if I went through Internet Radio -> Shoutcast, etc. I have restarted Slimserver several times.

Are my prefs screwed up someplace? Out of sync, if that's possible? Any ideas or other reports of this?

Did I see something in the SVN updates about Favorites being changed in the Default.map file?

I was gonna let this play out in the nightlies, but now I'm beginning to think this is some prefs issue and might not go away.

Thanks!

I forgot that this morning I _did_ load last night's image:

SlimServer_v2005-09-14.exe

Yeah, they somehow got out of sync! Here's a snippet from my slimserver.pref. Notice that the URLs for Favorites 3-5 do not match up with titles 3-5.

favorite_titles:
- radioioACOUSTIC
- radioioECLECTIC
- '(#1 - 46/1000) Folk Alley (( All Folk. All The Time. ))'
- '(#1 - 258/15454) Radio Paradise - DJ-mixed modern & classic rock, world, electronica & more - info: radioparadise.com'
- "(#1 - 163/15377) S K Y . F M - Smooth Jazz - the world's smoothest jazz 24 hours a day"

Sorry to keep replying to myself. I have no idea how the Favorites got messed up in the first place, or the strange URLs. I edited them manually and now it works properly.
