View Full Version : Waiting for message

2008-05-29, 20:08
I have just spent the best part of a day tidying up Tags on my music files and suspect that i've changed something accidentally....!

In the web interface I am getting a message flashing up in the Windows status bar, which appears momentarily every 7 or 8 seconds and appears to be impacting performance.

It disappears very quickly but I think it reads as follows:

Waiting for etc etc

Anyone point me in the direction of a solution or what I can do to troubleshoot this...?

I've cleared out the playlist diretory & stopped & r-started the server but to no avail.

(on 6.5.1, running on XP)

Have you rescanned your files ? I would do a complete clear and rescan if I had edited most of my tags.

Note this process can take a long time wait until its finished.

Yes I have done a full rescan: I had changed so many tags (i was trying to mostly tidy up duplicate artists and then apply various artists as AlbumArtist for relevant tracks).

I have about 11000 tracks so a Rescan takes a while, but the problem apeared after one of the Rescans.

Rather stumped as performance has crashed -nothing will play across the network without stuttering now so whole system is out of action.
