Subject: RE: Playlist Managers
From: Jonah, Jim (Jim.Jonah_at_compuware.com)
Date: 2003-05-28


Not to take up too much bandwidth on this list about non-rockbbox software,
but... here's the answers to your questions....

Right, after 1000 songs the playlist is split.

Yes, I read the manual. I suspect it didn't properly see that my jukebox was
out of disk space. The odd part was that it was overwriting files that
existed in both the target and the source - i.e. it shouldn't have needed to
move the files at all.

It was set up for two way sync, but not for deleting files, and to
automatically detect renamed and deleted folders.

The shuffling/syncing of the playlists is nice.

Jim

No. It even allows you to set a Max entries per playlist and resulting
playlists that have more entries than this maximum are split up into
sequentially numbered playlists.

I don't have any idea how you got it to do that. What were your
Synchronization settings? Ever RTFM?
