Re: How to get MM Server running on XP SP3

Hmmmm... That suggests my attempt at a 'clean install' wasn't clean enough if it knows I've upgraded. I might have to look into the nooks and crannies a bit harder and destroy all the remnants before reinstalling.

Re: How to get MM Server running on XP SP3

Okay, thanks for the help Lowlander. Does anyone else have any suggestions? Ideally, point me to the elusive "comprehensive dummies' guide to installing and running the MM server"... Or simply the steps they've taken to get MMS running standalone. Reading the forums, I note that some people see only...

Re: How to get MM Server running on XP SP3

Thanks. Yes, having a long playlist takes a long time to read, but in this case, it's reading the database to show how many tracks there are. My fault for leaving the browser on 'All'... I never have file monitoring on, as all my library additions and removals are done in a strict manual process, wi...

Re: How to get MM Server running on XP SP3

Back again after the Service uninstall/re-boot/re-install/re-boot. On re-booting the PC, neither Hudl sees any servers. The iPad sees Twonky. Kinsky sees Twonky & Technicolor. Once again, re-booting the Hudl allowed MMA to see the servers again. Maybe some persistent setting in MMA is causing that p...

Re: How to get MM Server running on XP SP3

On with the experimentation... I downloaded Linn Kinsky as a DLNA client. With MMW UI not running, Kinsky doesn't see the MM Server. It does see the Twonky & Technicolor servers, and actually finds media on the Twonky server; looks like Twonky is sooooo slow to serve, other apps timeout assuming it'...

Re: How to get MM Server running on XP SP3

Thanks for the additional responses. It's interesting that it tries to look for A&B, since File Monitoring is turned off, and I can't think if any other setting that would make it keep looking for drives, other than where the library is held. And there's nothing in the library on A:... There's only ...

Re: How to get MM Server running on XP SP3

Lowlander, Thanks for the quick reply; it's dedicated users like you and nohitter that seem to solve most problems (based on the wide reading of forum threads over the last few days...), and make up for what seems to be a lack of up-to-date and accurate documentation for MM. Just checked my old .ini...

Re: How to get MM Server running on XP SP3

Right, I'm back... After boot, but before logging in, I noticed the floppy tickle occurring. I tried connecting to the server with MMA, but it wasn't found. I logged on using the same account as I used to set up the server, and the same password. Task Manager shows just the MediaMoneyService.exe tas...

How to get MM Server running on XP SP3

I've spent the last four evenings trying to get the MediaMonkey server (4.1.5.1719) running on my very recently updated XP Pro SP3 machine. I've read http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=62906 and http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.php/WebHelp:Setting_UPnP/DLNA_Media_Servers/4.0 ...

Re: Organizing FLAC and MP3 with MM4

> How can I organize my music library with having both versions? I use a kludge. I've installed two copies of MM into different folders in 'Program Files'. I've moved the .ini files to these folders, and edited them to force them to use different databases. I have two shortcuts on the desktop, point...

Re: Setting location of mediamonkey.m3u 'Now Playing' playli

> Why don't you just install MM in portable mode onto your external drive? That's not an option with 3.2.5, even though an installation onto a portable drive seems to work perfectly well, even without registry settings being set. However, having just installed 4.0.6 to allow me to talk to the iPad*,...

Re: Setting location of mediamonkey.m3u 'Now Playing' playli

Okay, thanks for the quick reply. One for the 'Wishlist', perhaps? I don't see any fundamental reason why this couldn't be changed, provided the user is happy that there are different 'Now Playing' playlists, and hence different histories; many users might see this as a benefit. It would be particul...

Setting location of mediamonkey.m3u 'Now Playing' playlist

Having recently discovered that I can tell MediaMonkey where to find its .ini file, and thus tell it where to find the mm.db database, I can create two different MM libraries (one for my main media library, and one for the compressed, portable media library). The only thing missing is the ability to...
