View Full Version : Scrobble caching - no internet for 3 months

Hi,

I am running Squeezebox server 7.5.1 r30836.

I moved house about 3 months ago and had no internet connection where my Squeezebox/server are located. I just hooked them up onto the internet and I was hoping my Last.fm play history would be scrobbled. However, it didn't happen and nothing was updated.

Scrobbling works OK for new tracks with the internet connected but I was wondering if the old history was recorded and if it was possible to submit?

I've tried looking at the file system but can't see where the scrobbling history is stored, if anywhere.

Cheers

Tracks past a certain date won't scrobble. I have this issue with an
ipod I keep in my car; I pull it out every couple months to update
it, and only the tracks from the last week-ish (not really sure of
the cutoff) will scrobble.

Understandable, but it didn't update anything - even from the last day or two.

From the Last.FM FAQ:


What happens if I scrobble offline and my tracks don’t get submitted immediately?
When you’re scrobbling offline, the Last.fm scrobbler will cache the tracks you listen to. You can check this by going to the “Help” menu and clicking “Diagnostics” where the cached scrobbles should appear. These scrobbles should then be submitted to your Last.fm profile the next time you connect to the Internet.

You have two weeks to submit your scrobbles to your Last.fm profile, otherwise they will be disregarded. You should bear this in mind when scrobbling music you listen to on your computer while offline for a long time, or when you don’t sync your iPod scrobbles for a while.
