View Full Version : Re: Moodlogic / DAB Radio

Not sure I explained properly. I have .m3u files in my playlists
directory (one for each radio station). I can listen to live radio using
those files no problem.

I use DabBar to record a radio show into a .mp2 file and put it in
m:\radio. It records it fine, and I can play it back fine.

Here's the problem: When I have moodlogic enabled, it can't find those
files either by searching or borwsing the directory. If I disable
moodlogic support, I can simply browse to the "Radio" directory and see
the files from there.

Am I making sense?

Ah, I see. you have some MP2 files that won't play back because they
aren't in the MoodLogic database. Got it.

Try putting one of those files in your Playlists Folder and let me know
if that works. I'll look into it here.
