Woken up to RadioDJ 1.8.1 throwing an exception up at us couldn't get into the .NET error box to post the error code but in Error logs it's showing this for some reason again it's happened twice this morning.

Code: [Select]
   Can't connect to MySQL server on '127.0.0.1' (10061): Authentication failed. (CALL UpdateTracks(2375,0,0,365,0); UPDATE `songs` SET `artist_played`=NOW() WHERE `artist` LIKE '%Wet Wet Wet%';)

Nothing has changed with our configuration other than an Anti-Virus change

Excellent! Happy for the Cue Button. Maybe a future consideration would be to have a visual indication of which track is playing in Cue. I see the red when I press the button but it returns to the original color once the track starts playing.

I keep loving it....it brings Radio to the DJ!

Cheers

@Marius, thanks for adding the Subcategory view in playlist.
Do you think it could be possible to make it show also the Genre right near Subcategory?
Thanks again.

Not sure that i can squeeze there something else. Maybe it's time to redesign the slots and make them a bit larger.

Small bug in RDJ

This is a situation where I don't think you get very often, but there are chances.
This situation occure only if I use shortcuts.

1. A track is playing,
2. I press PAUSE shortcut. The track is PAUSED and the pause button change to "red".
3. I press REPLAY shortcut. The track is replayed BUT the pause button remain "red". If I press PAUSE shortcut (again) the button change to "gray" (normal color) without pause the track.

The same bug exist on RDJ 1.7.4, 1.8.0, 1.8.1 (I just checked these versions).

Fixed a bug which prevented playing the first item from the playlist to the main soundcard when was edited;

The bug  is "the first item from the playlist to the CUE soundcard when was edited".

My config now is only 1 soundcard, but in option I set main to speaker and CUE to headphone, 2 independent output.

Thanks

Not a bad idea. Well, we don't have long names in generes so I believe that adding it wouldn't be a problem after all :)

Ignore my posts about errors I'm beginning to think windows updates somehow screwed our system over when we last rebooted.

Looks like the DB had crashed somehow as a quick repair has stopped the error messages.

Everything is working as it should .... Kudos Marius!  :cool:


Now the windows 7 box prompting us (again) to reboot after 12 more updates Arrrggghh! Will I ever get a decent uptime.  :bash:

OK Issues have come up with this version. One the backup of the Database is not working for me. It just sits there and smiles at me. I have to use Workbench to backup the database. Also, the settings_artists.txt file is being ignored for some reason. As I have artists repeating all over the place. I have tried with a complete reinstall from basic settings but still the issues continue. so I will place this issue to you all on what to do to fix.

I don't remember in the older version but with 1.8.1 I'm testing main loop button from shortcut or by mouse selection and via shortcut the loop button is red but not looping and go to next track, if I select loop by mouse it's ok

Hello All!!!

I have a problem. I installed the version 1.8.1 but when I start RadioDJ, it does not start playing automatically (when I have switched on the function to play after start the program).

The same issue is, when there is loaded a rotation by an event (rotation loads normally and starts to play), when there is the last song, the rotation does not repeat itself = does not load any next tracks.

My previous version was 1.7.4 and there is no problem. It plays after start and it loads next songs after a rotation is playing the last one (or before last).

Is it a bug or I do something wrong?

Thank you!

Post by: Marius on May 26, 2015, 08:16:02 AM
nonstopradio, is this a new install?
Did you checked for invalid/disabled tracks?
Title: Re: RadioDJ v1.8.1 Released!
Post by: Fabbbio on May 26, 2015, 11:11:42 AM
Something strange also for me.
My situation is one PC with rdj181 and sql+audio on a NAS that run 24h, yesterday I installed on my laptop the new rdj181 with connection to main sql_db and everything ok but without starting default rotation, this morning I run rdj of my laptop and when I try to add songs to playlist it disable the song, and ethis appen for every track that I try to add.

The db is not a fresh install but I have upgraded it when I installed rdj 1.7.9 on main pc.

Post by: Fabbbio on May 26, 2015, 11:34:55 AM
I solved was mine mistake. My shared audio folder on laptop was down, so when rdj can't access the track it disable... 
Title: Re: RadioDJ v1.8.1 Released!
Post by: nonstopradio on May 27, 2015, 02:33:54 PM
Marius,

it is a fresh install of 1.8.1 but database is upgraded from 1.7.4. I have enough enabled tracks. When I play manually or when I wait for an event, it starts playing.

Problem is after start of Radiodj that the Default rotation doe not load anything and also during the automatic plaing when the last track from the playlist is played, there are not loaded next tracks automatically again. Of course I have enabled automatic mode and autoDJ (both icons are green).

Thank you

Have you updated the database from 1.7.4 to 1.7.6 and from 1.7.6 to 1.7.7 ?

If so, use relocate tracks.
And in the Track manager on the tab show all, select show disabeled, so you can see if ther are tracks disabeled.
Title: Re: RadioDJ v1.8.1 Released!
Post by: nonstopradio on May 27, 2015, 04:48:47 PM

Yes I upgraded the database using the SQL job "1.7.7 UPDATE FROM  1.7.6.sql" from the settings folder.
There is lot of tracks enabled. When I play manually, it is normally playing. It is working also whn an event occurs (every hour) and clear the playlist and loads a rotation.

The only problem thing is to start playing automatically, when the program starts and also automatic adding tracks to the playlist, using the rotation (both is probably caused by one problem or bug).  In the version 1.7.4 it worked normally. It should work the same way, because there is the same database (only upgraded). The installation of 1.8.1 is clear, I unzipped the installation package downloaded from here and made no change in it's files. I thicked the switch for automatic playing on start, in the settings of RadioDJ. I tried the same on 2 different computers and it is still the same.

Get a error by importing with allow duplicates.

Import a map in subcat 60s is ok.
Reimported the map in subcat 70s get import error.
Title: Re: RadioDJ v1.8.1 Released!
Post by: Jhonny on June 15, 2015, 07:42:52 PM
would it be possible that there is some explanation of how to use this?
 Is it RDJ or database server?  :angel:

I'm lost :bash:

Marius, i am more than happy with this version! After i installed v1.7.8 that was running 24/7 a couple of months with no problems, i installed the update in 10! minutes. After the 10 minutes, started the new and improved v1.8.1 and it was up and running in no time.

Very glad to find a cue button ( wrong pop up name though, but it works!) and tested that one. playout still running on the Delta 1010 output 1 and 2, the on board soundcards started the cued track! GREAT!

Even more impressed when i find the wait option! That is what i am going to try for the events and silence detection. If that works i let you know. Maybe one more request but i don't know if that is your hand. Is it possible to put in an assigned button on the gamepad pligin for this new Cue button? That way when i press the cue on the Eela SBM90, it wil start the first cued track in the list.

I also introduced the RadioDJ software to the station were i work and they use 4 editions v1.7.6 as a silence/nonstop playout and working 24/7 for at this moment, 93 days in a row with no reboot.

To give some numbers:
P4 at 3gHz ht
2gb internal memory
40gb c drive
1tb data drive
Windows XP pro 32 bit SP3 ( yes for real! )
Running MySQL, 4 editions RadioDJ v1.7.6 for 4 channels on air and cable, a nettime program to keep the time right, a silence logger and with all this and a rotation on all editions, clearing and reloading playlists every hour running at 15% processor during play and 90% at TOTH

GREAT JOB!
