View Full Version : Ever increasing song count

I have been troubleshooting this one for several days now. I may have found my solution (again!).
I remembered that I had used MP3gain on my collection before seeing this problem.
I decided to get itunes to reimport its collection (in options/advanced I think) by setting to another folder then re-pointing it to the usual collection. I believe this makes it rebuild its XML file (?).
Then I moved the playlist folder to a seperate folder completely from where the music is stored. Specified the itunes music folder and the itunes XML location (rather than auto detect).
Then finally cleared the TAG cache in the server. Restarted the slimserver service.
And (touching wood) the song count has stayed stable so far..... (2 days and counting).

On a side note, I had found that disabling itunes support in slimserver stopped this behaviour also, but this just isn't a viable option for me.

I'll let you know if it stays stable.

Thanks, as I am not using it, this could not be the cause of my problem, I just
removed the playlist folder from the server settings and after several hours of
playback with the SB, the song count is still correct... Note that I am using
