    Sorry if this is a question asked elsewhere.

    I have been using Firefly for a while, works great until recently.

    It has just taken to double listing all my songs loaded via I-tunes.

    I’ve looked for similar threads, but cannot find a way to delete the double entries – circa 1900 of them!

    Now if I use my soundbridge I have to listen to everything twice.

    How do I resolve this?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Sorted it, not sure if it is the right way!

    In advanced config on the web interface:

    Changed:

    Process xmlFiles (No/Yes) Should iTunes xml-files be processed?

    From Yes to No

    Single listings now.

    Hopefully this is correct way.

    You’ll lose iTunes playlists that way. You can turn the xmlFiles back on, and set the option for “Case Insensitive” to “Yes” and then do a full scan from the status page. That should get rid of dups, but keep the iTunes playlists.

    Ron,

    Thanks for the reply.

    It didn’t work.

    Just to be sure did you mean this should be set to yes?
    Case Sensitive No / Yes Is the filesystem case sensitive?

    Tried it both ways anyway.

    However, have done a little digging and I seem to have many libraries for I-tunes – I guess I just delete the older ones to stop Firefly scanning them.

    The reason this has probably come about, is that I had a PC die – due to CPU frying itself (Christmas Eve), and recently suffered a loss of OP system, may have been due to a virus.

    In trying to save my music and photos I may have used a clumsy approach, or perhaps set I-tunes back up differently – worked OK for the photos, but all I needed was to copy them!

    Anyway, using the 6P approach (proper pre-planning….etc.) I have invested in NAS drive Lacie EDmini, and intend to set this up as the server, attached to my wireless router.

    So I can live without playlists for the moment.

    I will almost certainly be back with further questions.

    Many thanks for your help.

    Dave
