Questions / strange backup behaviour
« on: January 24, 2015, 10:54:42 PM »
Every time I back up my actual music files there is a small bunch of them which keep backing up.  I've executed backup and then immediately backed up again and these files are shown  being backed up again even though there obviously have been no additions since the last back up.
Any ideas please?

Hello Steven
Thanks for the DLNA plugin It has made MB pretty much the perfect program. However the DLNA device I want to send to is a Roberts radio 83i.
I can see MB music server on the Roberts and can access my music onto the radio and play it using the MB server. But I cant see the device in MB. I have pasted  the error log for you to look at.

Questions / dlna to roberts 83i
« on: December 18, 2014, 12:41:27 AM »
Having installed the dlna plugin I can see my Samsung bdh6500 Blu-ray player and my pioneer wireless speaker but not my Roberts 83i. I have tried tweaking the plugin settings with no luck.
Its the Roberts that I mainly want to use.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks :)

 8) I decided that the DLNA option wasn't really that important enough to ditch MB so I looked at an alternative Dac. Bought a NAD DAC 1 for £69 off of ebay. OUTSTANDING! My listening experience has been transformed. The good thing also is that I will be staying with MB, Phew!

here's my opinion.
MB does not communicate with i phones and doesn't have a DLNA  client. But that's it. In every other aspect MB is far superior.

Questions / aiff tag error?
« on: April 02, 2014, 10:59:46 PM »
When trying to edit tags for my aiff files I get a error message saying aiff tags not supported but the tags do seem to have been updated successfully.
Any thoughts as to why this is happening?

I have looked at redwings link and it appears that has I feared MB does not support dlna. However I think I can do better than the Lindy wireless Dac as I had just seen the NAD DAC 1 on line for £99 down from £300! Anyone have experience of one of these.

Questions / how do you listen to your music?
« on: March 28, 2014, 10:00:19 PM »
First let me say that Musicbee is the reason why I finally changed over from CDs to computer storage. I now have over 16000 songs on my hard drive and enjoy the flexibility and convenience musicbee gives me. However I quickly realized that playing a lifetimes worth of music ( I am 63) through PC speakers even with a bass woofer was just not good enough sound quality wise. How could I get my treasured collection over to my Arcam amp and floor standing speakers. Well I bought for £40 a little streaming device called a Lindy. It streams independent of WiFi and works most of the time OK. But I feel I could get better sound by spending more money on a decent  streamer or DLNA device but I think I'm right in thinking that these devices need to control the organization and playing of the music and won't work with Musicbee. I've tried Musicmonkey which will do the job but is just not up to scratch compared to MB. I'm sure you guys out there are listening to your music on good hifi using MB so what are your methods? I don't think a cable from the PC sound card is a good idea so some method of streaming while still having MB control the playing is what I want.

thanks ;)

MusicBee Wishlist / Re: lossyWAV 1.3
« on: May 05, 2013, 09:18:47 PM »
Doesn't work for me. Could someone please give me the settings for lossywav in the convertor parameters for ALAC.

In the encoder preferences there is portable device and file archiving options in the parameters but both have -i - -acodec alac [outputfile] set.
The files come converted as large files (like flacs) so I assume only the  file archiving option is set. What parameters do I need for portable device encoding?
