View Full Version : Integration SN / SC7

Hi everyone,

I updated to SC7 some time ago because of better integration of SN into SC. What I was expecting from what I was reading that I don't have to make every setting twice (time formats etc.), syncing of favourites and so on.

What I get is: nothing of this ;)

What am I doing wrong? The "sync-option" in SC is enabled, but RSS-Feeds, POdcasts, favourites, time-formats and so on are not beeing synced. Do I have to set them up in SC? Or in SN? Or doesn't that matter at all? Or am I getting the whole thing wrong?

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Not all options are synchronized, but most should be. Do you see any error messages in server.log regarding squeezenetwork? If not, try Settings/Advanced/Logging network.squeezenetwork=debug.

I'm also a bit confused. Was this fixed in a recent build? What options are supposed to be synchronized? Are the radio station favorites in SC7 supposed to sync with the radio stations favorites in the beta.squeezenetwork and vise versa? I just noticed that my SC7 server log no longer generates sync errors between beta.squeezenetwork and my SC7 server. But... the favorites are not in sync. I had assumed that this functionality was not working yet. In previous releases my server log was generating beta.squeezenetowk address resolution (DNS) errors when the SC7 tried to sync the betaSN. In today's build I do not see these errors in the log.

I don't think favorites are synchronized but I could be wrong. Most of my
favorites are not radio stations but local tracks. Naturally these would
not sync. There could be some logic to only sync favorites relevant to SN I
suppose, but I don't know that this is in place. It certainly isn't working
for me if it's supposed to be. I enabled debug tracing for the item Michael
mentioned and there's nothing out of the ordinary indicating any sort of
sync failure or trouble. Other player settings seems to be syncing fine for
me, running the latest builds.

Andy,

thanks for clearing this up. But as most of the listed setting are only set once during the process of setting up SC/SN, it would be really nice to have the often changing setting having synched (favourites, podcasts). It's always a pain to have your podcasts set up in SC not available when connected to SN.

So, this would be really cool have in a future release.

In future releases I'd also like to see the capability to optionally select "some" of these preferences to sync. As is, I won't be using this sync feature because my screensaver while connected to SC7 is a plugin that's not available via the SqueezeNetwork.
