    Top Tracks and Flop tracks

    Running Logitech Media Server Version: 7.9.0 - 1469176740 @ Sat Jul 23 04:05:47 CUT 2016

    I have ticked Top Tracks & Flop Tracks in Settings/ Additionl Browse Modes' so that they now appear in 'My Music'.

    But when I click on either in LMS nothing happens?

    Is 'top tracks' going to show my tracks based on ratings or play count or other?

    Can somebody advise me on how Top Tracks & Flop Tracks functions?

    It's based on the play count. Of little use to most, mostly a prove of
    concept.

    Thanks Michael.

    So I guess you are saying it doesn't do anything?

    Why then is it available in Settings? Whats the point?

    nope.

    just play a single track.
    If its played more than 10 secs - press play again and again and again (after ~10 secs)

    Now that tracks has many counts on the database and would be shown in Top Tracks.

    Flop Traks are Tracks that never/less played than others.
    If you wiped your database(s) and just import your files - Top Tracks is empty (if you drop your persistent.db)

    If you did nor delete them and its empty - its a failure.

    I just played about 15 songs right thru.

    When I clicked Top Tracks in LMS nothing appears?

    What gives? Does Top/Flop Tracks work?

    please explain nothing?
    a empty page?

    on my setup its working.
    Since i just wiped my database i could only post a screenshoot with one single track played once.

    Did you checked your server.log file for errors?
    Which Os are you running for your lms?

    Thanks DJanGo.

    I am running Win7. I should say I have TrackStat plug in. Maybe this causes a problem?

    When I say nothing happens, I mean when I click Top Tracks there is no activity whatsoever. LMS screen does not change.

    I have uploaded (hopefully - I have never uploaded a file here before) an extract of my Server log since Aug 1.

    Does this provide any insight into the problem?

    maybe - i dont use it top-tracks is using the persist.db i dont know if trackstat manipulates this database.

    My library is pretty "new build" so top-titel (german for top-tracks) is not saying too much.

    If its not working (sorry i dont really know) may its worth to disable trackstat for a test.

    Top Tracks and Flop tracks

    Feel free to send me a copy of your library.db and persist.db files. You
    can upload them to my dropbox:

    https://www.dropbox.com/request/T3RctyzGgNg0oFDubq6a

    You would find them in your LMS' cache folder (see Settings/Information
    to find out the location of this folder).

    Top Tracks and Flop Tracks

    Works well on LMS 7.9.0 - 0.138.20160730git1469851679 @ Sat Jul 30 22:15:43 BST 2016 running on VortexBox, Fedora 23 with Trackstat.
