Wow, didn't even see it up there before... I think this is the first mention of it. No release notes either...

Well, I was able to make changes to the DB and rebuild it with no problems, so it appears that problem may be solved. It was a bit of work to install, I had to manually rebuild the database twice. But after I got all that sorted out, it appears to be working ok.

Sounds fixed to my ears... but Iím not positive.

Also, i can't seem to sink over Ethernet. Syncing with USB and Emplode 2.10 worked great. Rebuilt the DB, and Iím running pretty smoothly now.
Note: I upgraded from alpha 5.

Were you brave enough to put it on your main player? How many tracks did you have on it when you did the upgrade?

Why was I under the impression that there was a different or something significant between EVEN and ODD numbered releases? i.e. 3.00a3, 3.00a5, 2.00b11, 2.00b13, etc etc. Is my memory that fuzzy that I'm mixing this up with some other beta thing I'm doing and just a coinkidink that all the Empeg b/a releases were odd numbered?

If the DB rebuild problem is fixed, it's going on both of my players.

Me.

Stereo separation is fixed, syncing over ethernet works! Seems just as stable as a5 was. I'm really happy!

Ahhhhh... the spare player upgraded so easily that I crossed my fingers and am in the process of upgrading the player with 70gigs of tracks.

I complained about that previously, and Mike said what it was, but I can't find the post now.

Of course, alpha6 fails just like alpha5 for me: no music. It "builds" a database with nothing in it. But unlike alpha5 connecting with jEmplode and trying to build a database doesn't fail quickly. It's still "synchronizing" 2.5 hours later. Yeah, right.

Your player is weird!

After the JEmplode error message, I "touched" a playlist (to force a sync), and then told JEmplode to "sync" it. Rebooted the player after it finished, and all is well.. database has all 6000 or so tracks.

Cheers

Maybe my player is weird. Maybe I'm running out of memory.

Anyone else running with alpha5 or alpha6 with 12k songs?

Hm.

12,000 songs? No, but my player is telling me 9thousand something tracks and around 70gigs. Alpha 6 seems to have upgraded the player fine keeping all of my previous playlists and everything. But then again I have a tendancy of speaking too soon (knocking on wood).

Maybe I'm running out of memory

Have you tried playing with the ReserveCache setting? Alpha3 wouldn't build a DB for me until I added a ReserveCache (64 I think). I think the kernel was running out of memory and killing off the player. You have more tunes than I do though, I think I am around 7000.

I had a ReserveCache of 48. I just removed it. If it fails I will readd with 64.

Ok *removing* ReserveCache entirely made it build. So now I just need to sync.

I'm not sure about in the car but it sounds damn good on my pc speakers.

Also... no problems syncing with ethernet upgrading from v2.00 final or alpha5.

Of course, having sync'd (and thus having databases again) I now can't actually choose any of my soups, the player hangs when I do. I wonder if making a smaller soup would fix it, e.g. is this entirely a memory issue.

Good! I'm very happy to hear you've managed to get onto the v3 alphas!

Is your player a Mk2 (12MB), or Mk2a (16MB) ?

I put it up for Tony to test just before I left work and I forgot to erase it. Tony reported total failure, which seems to be due to too much cache allocated. This release may be no good for anything but 16MB players. Not that it is a release.

I have 3 2a players (also a Mk1 and no Mk2).

alpha6 also now on my wife's player, looks good. Had I tried alpha5 on my wife's player it would have worked

Mmm.. accidental or otherwise, this one is definitely a keeper! It's so nice to be able to use a well-functioning v3-alpha again!

I've just released Hijack v363, which includes a minor update to workaround the broken "prev visual" function from alpha6 (similar to prior v3 alphas).

Cheers
