MMA 2 is a big new release, that's why it's taking longer. There is no release date set for MMA 2.

Hi,
That highly depend on MM5 as MM 2.0 take advantage on MM5 architecture not available in older MMW versions.

sorry to insist but still in desperate need for this, as i tag specific genres on my tracks that i use for DJing afterwards.

Right now i have to :
- MMA : edit the title by adding with "/// deep_house_chill"
- sync
- MMW : cut off "/// deep_house_chill" and paste it in the "genre" field

manually

You guess how much time is lost with that

Genre change not synced from device to PC

Post by BigPedro »

Hi, if I change the genre of a track on my device I've found that the new genre is not synced back to the PC, which is highly inconvenient.

Is this a bug or by design, and if by design, use it possible to include genre sync in a future release please?

Dude, it's what this whole thread is about, did you read? ;-)

@MediaMonkey please fix it before mma 2.0 ;-/

I didn't see this thread, I started a new question, why are you getting worked up about it? Just take a deep breath and scroll past.

your question is not showing as a new question but as a reply to this topic
I guess it was moved by a moderator, hence the misunderstanding,
you could have just said so to begin with.

You could have just asked, anyway, we both want the same thing, let's hope a fix is forthcoming 😀

buddy, there was no way for me to know

Metadata changed on MMA is not syncing back to MMW

Post by rezme »

Hello, I've been trying to get this working properly and after a couple months of trying I've decided to file a bug report. Tag changes to tracks are not all being sent back to MMW on synchronization. In my testing I've determined the following

Title - Synced
Artist - Not synced
Album - Synced
Album Artist - Not synced
Genre - Not synced
Rating - Synced

I'm syncing over WiFi. I've tested on two phones. Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S20.

S9
Synced to internal storage
Created a playlist with just a couple tracks.
Synced to phone
Modified metadata for title/artist/album/album artist/genre/rating on phone
Synced to MMW
Metadata for Artist/Album Artist/Genre failed to sync

MMW is configured to sync file metadata from the device to the PC

MMA Version: 1.4.2.0938 Pro
MMW Version: 4.1.30.1912 Gold (Lifetime)

In the course of testing this, I've sent three sets of logs from the S9. I've only confirmed the bug on the S20, no further testing was done there, because I've got around 9000 songs on that SD card and wanted a clean set of logs for you to browse.

Log ID: BKE6L6VE4G
Log ID: IKZXYYZW3K
Log ID: QX16WYGC6L

Please let me know if there's any more information I can provide. There is a bug report for a similar bug http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=13548, however it's in a "resolved" state

*Update*

After looking closer at that bug report, it appears that it was reclassified as a feature request added to version 2.0. I don't see an Android version 2.0 anywhere except for one forum post from 4 years ago asking when 2.0 will be available that garnered a snarky reply of "when it's ready". Without engendering the same sort of snark, is there any way you can give a ballpark on when this feature that was fixed 4 years ago might be released? There's nothing in the product that indicates that this feature isn't implemented, and the way the UI is set up suggests that those values would be updated along with the rest. Sorry if I sound a little curt myself, but I've spent the last few weeks banging my head against this issue thinking I was doing something wrong, and it turns out the product was the issue, not me.

been hoping for that since 2 years here

i use the title field to add whatever information i want to put since this one is correctly synced and then i manually copy in MMW whatever is in title to the genre field

it takes me hours, and im probably not the only person to do so..

Is it working in MMW beta version? i dont think so

This is to be addressed in MMA 2.0, but there is no timeline for MMA 2.0, it really will be available when ready. However they're working hard on it, but MM5 is the current priority for release after which MMA 2.0 will be the priority.
