mma stopped syncing wirelessly

Post by terryo » Sat Jun 20, 2020 1:06 pm

MMW 4.1.29.1907
MMA 1.3.8.0916
Win 10 fully up to date as of 6/20/20
Android on Samsung S9 fully up to date as of 6/20/20

This just started. Everything has worked beautifully as of my last wireless sync yesterday.

When wireless sync is initiated, MMA returns "Completed with errors"
"Synchronization refused by remote server. Verify that Wi-Fi sync is enabled on the remote server."

Rebooted everything. Double checked for current systems and programs. Even did a wired sync, which worked fine. Nothing changed, same error on wireless sync.

If there is some sort of 'enable wi-fi sync' check box in MMW, I'll be damned if I can find it. Messed with some possible suspects under "Portable Device Sync"

No solution found.

Can UPnP from MMA play files from MMW?

I hunted around and found UPnP/DLNA under Media Sharing in the Options menu. The thing that popped out at me is it lists three different IP addresses. So I checked my computer and found none of them match the current address of the computer. How do I get the proper IP address into MMW?

I had to get a new router when I switched internet providers early this year. The new one reshuffles the IP addresses every time it reboots. I only found this out because I kept losing my printer connections and my RAID storage arrays became inaccessible about once a month. I changed everything on the network to fixed IP addresses about 2-3 months ago. Why would MMW sync fine until a few days ago when it has had the wrong IP address for months?

Hi,
Most likely you had saved settings and it firstly tried to tunnel Sync to save settings and if works it works. why it stopped working I can't tell something changes in your settings.

Have you tried https://www.advanced-ip-scanner.com/ to scan your LAN to see what is there?

I tried a sync just now and mmw has deleted the three old DHCP addresses and updated itself to the current fixed IP address.

Now the only problem is mma is adding the entire library (3662 songs) when I only added about 100 new songs to my sync selected playlists. Guess I'll try to sort that out when the sync is done in an hour or so.

And I won't try to sync my Galaxy Tab S until I figure out why the S9 phone is doing this. It failed with the same sync error as the phone.

The sync looked perfect. Several days later, I found my phone memory was maxed out and mma had duplicated my entire library in it, even though none of those tracks were accessible in mma. Deleted it via computer and found the sync box was now checked for the phone memory. Unchecked it and mostly things are good.

Except the playlists still don't sync properly, but that's in a different, as yet unresolved thread (which might be left hanging because I understand mma v2.0 is in the works. I hope that fixes it).

mmw 4.1.29.1910 killed ability to mma sync

Post by terryo » Wed Jul 15, 2020 12:40 pm

Loaded mmw 4.1.29.1910 and my two attempts at syncing failed.

I rebooted everything, computer and Samsung phone. On the third attempt to sync, it says "Completed with errors: Synchronization refused..."

See: https://www.mediamonkey.com/support/ind ... ork-at-all

Start with trying UPnP in MMA to connect to the MMW server: http://www.mediamonkey.com/support/inde ... lna-server

In MMW make sure the device is allowed to connect in the media server (Tools > Options > Media Sharing).

You know what? MM is becoming decidedly not user friendly. I did nothing other than load an upgrade of mmw to 4.1.29.1910

Everything was working fine* after I recovered from the disconnection caused in the last upgrade. It seems unreasonable for me as a consumer to be regularly wading through forums trying to solve problems I am not creating.

I fully realize that keeping an application afloat in the churning seas of evolving OSes is an arduous and demanding task, but when the problems fall into my lap, it sure is frustrating.

*(mostly fine: playlist sync is still off kilter)

I have the same problem. Upgraded MMW to latest version and now I can't WiFi sync. Have gone through all the steps, nothing works. MMA doesn't even seem to be able to see the server anymore.
