    Hi just got Firefly 1696 running on NSLU2 with Unslung 6.10.

    Tested it with 300 mp3s on the attached HDD.

    Then loaded the rest of the Music lib onto it overnight, 44582 mp3s

    The Pinnacle Soundbridge connects OK to the library, but whenever I try to browse anything, Artist, Album, Genre, Composer etc it returns Fail to Load Browse data….

    I am running with sqllite3, Compress on, Scan set to 0

    Status confirms it has added 44582 files to the library.

    I am running it all on an unslung 300GB Maxtor HDD

    Anyone got any ideas on what I can do to get it going again.

    I am going to test it with just half as many mp3s.

    Thanks

    This is related to the hard timeout the soundbridge has for how long it waits for the browse data to return. I expect that this will be improved in next nightlies. Failing that, there is a thread on creating indexes to speed up returns here http://forums.fireflymediaserver.org/viewtopic.php?t=5525 that might be insightful.

    Thanks

    I have made progress.

    45k songs is just out of the question

    With 28k songs and every tweak I can find it works OK, browsing is out of the question, you need to drop to 15k songs for that.

    In order to make the whole thing family safe and easy I have created 18 presets for each of the 4 rooms the Soundbridges are in. Also created a while pile of playlists that will pull up new albums added, favourite artists, etc etc

    This way no one needs to browse for anything.

    A lot of the playlists are based around Grouping, for example I have labelled tracks “Lounge Acoustic Guitar” “Lounge Acoustic Piano” “Lounge Acoustic Harp””Lounge Feelin Good”. This way I can setup playlists that contain Lounge, or Acoustic or Piano just by searching Grouping.

    Anyway seems to work well for us, although it does take some time to setup.

    I have moved the library onto a flash stick to try and speed it up, used the sqlite3, also I have indexed, Artist, Grouping, Album and it certainly has had an effect.

    Do you anticipate a version coming that will help with this?

    Thanks for all your work it is seriously cool.

    Yes. I think the next nightlies will go toward this, although it make take several releases to stabilize.

    That would be seriously cool

    I am running up Firefly as a server on an old notebook I have until I can get all 45k songs running on the Slug.

    The best I have done is get just over 30k songs loaded and working on all counts.

    I can stretch it a bit more but loose the ability to browse artist etc, the playlists still work though.

    I’ll run the production on the notebook and use the slug to test Nightlies.

    Your efforts are appreciated

    Mike
