View Full Version : SqueezeServer not picking up new album from iTunes

Platform: Intel P4, Windows XP
SqueezeBox Server 7.6.0 r32854
iTunes 10.2.2.14

I ripped a new CD in iTunes. It shows up there and plays fine.

But it doesn't show up on my squeezeboxes (a Duet and a Radio).

So far, I have tried:
- waiting
- telling squeezebox to rescan the music (using the settings in the web
browser UI).
- restarted the squeezebox server
- restarted the computer

Does anyone have any debugging tips? Logs to look at? Error messages
during scan?

Thanks!

Unfortunately there's a bug in 7.6.0 preventing iTunes to be scanned on
simpled rescans. You'll have to run a full wipe & rescan from the web UI.

Does a full wipe and rescan have any unpleasant side effects? (apart
from taking time, that is...?)

Do you know if there will be a recent update that will fix this issue?

Thanks!

I also use iTunes to rip my CDs and I have almost always done a full rescan - for at least a couple years, and never had any problems - other than the time it takes.

Well, other than the "new music" playlist being messed up, everything
seems to be ok. It also looks like the covers have appeared for those
albums that mysteriously missed them.
