Title: Artist repeats with 1.7.8
Post by: jopizz on February 22, 2015, 05:49:12 AM
After testing 1.7.8 for about four hours today I am getting artist repeats. My artist interval is set for 240 minutes. The odd thing is that the history shows that the songs were played today but the song search shows that the last time the songs were played was yesterday.

It does to me too , but I surrendered to the situation I have never observed this thing . Even from 1.7.7 I had to disable the songs because those always sounded every 10 minutes . :'(
Because I do not see the date in search of the last time he played , but the duration of the ' intro and the song ? :bash:

If the time played doesn't gets updated, it may be a problem with the database or even missing the UpdateTracks procedure (by skipping at a point the database update, or simply by restoring a backup that was made before the database update.).

How can we check this ? I attach a photo taken at this time " Biagio Antonacci " ready to play again after a few minutes .

Do a backup of your database, archive it and send me a link.

You database looks fine at first sight. In rdj options what is the repeat artist/track interval? Also, is the reset subcategories enabled in options-auto dj?

Marius,

Here's the link to mine.

http://squarebirds.org/users/jopizz/20150222%20004110.rar. Artist interval is 240. Reset subcategories is unchecked.

Do you mean as in disabled?

Reset subcategories is unchecked

If so, checked (enabled it) or put it on.

I only have one subcategory with over 1700 songs in it so it should never run out. I did check the windows log when I started getting repeats and there was no error indicating that it didn't have enough tracks in the subcategory.

Another option is if you see the same artist or song, the track manager.

Search by artist name or song title, if there are differences adjust them.

Problems like an extra space or no space or dot ect....

jopizz: You are overriding the auto dj with events that are loading tracks, so it's pretty complicated to follow what is happening there, but it helped me discover a little bug in load tracks from category event action. the action ignored the repeat artist/track value and applied 60 minutes only.
Investigating further...  :)

Yes, I have six events per hour during the week and eight on the weekend that load tracks from the same subcategory but different genres. I had a repeat artist issue when I first loaded 1.7.7. but I did another database update and rebuilt my rotations and it went away.

@Radiobellissima: you have 2 rotations ('Bellissime' and 'Default') and on both the entries are without repeat rules applied, so the tracks will never be verified if it were already played.

I understand that I have to do to fix . Unfortunately for many functions 'm going to guess that since there is a detailed manual for all functions . I have to put the check on rotations where highlighted ?

Yes, if you want to avoid repeating tracks, on every "music" entry you much check that field. On jilnges/promos/ads you can let it un-checked.

Perfect I try immediately . The tick should be put on reset subcategories or not what is it really ?
Title: Re: Artist repeats with 1.7.8
Post by: Marius on February 23, 2015, 07:11:34 PM
For now don't tick the reset subcategories. Just modify the rotations.

Update problems , how we put the check in the event repetition artist has regularized . But now there is a new problem as seen in the attached picture so I think it should be random to play station 2 id together. The strange thing that " beautiful 13 " has the normal period of six station id "instead " beautiful 16 " I find him with length 3.04, which does not exist because it is also one of a few seconds . The thing is quite annoying Marius could have a look quickly ?
thanks in advance
Marcello

That means that a subcategory was skipped because it cannot return any valid track which respects your repeat rules. Try to add more tracks to the skipped subcategory, or lower the repeat track/artist interval.

Post by: Radiobellissima on February 25, 2015, 10:03:06 PM
But have you noticed that the length of the station id is abnormal ?
