I installed a new VortexBox Midi yesterday, copied around 1TB files (> 19,000 tracks, some 16/44.1, some 24/96) from my Windows Box to it, scanned with LMS and all is well. That took around 7 hours. As a British TV Ad says 'It does what it says on the tin' so I'm very happy.
However, I set it to mirror my flacs (at 190Kbs) yesterday early evening, and it has still barely made a start at 16:00 today. Is it really going to take weeks to do this? I did a search through the forum and people talk about hours, not days or weeks. I really want to sort out backups but I don't want to do this until the MP3s are sorted out (I have several backups from my Windows box, so it isn't too urgent).
Secondly, does the VortexBox 'Get Cover Art' do anything at all? It tried my flacs for about 50 minutes and then said it was done. A quick look at the mirror log doesn't seem to show anything at all, and I don't know where it would have put the art even if it did find any. I don't know if location makes a difference. My tracks for non-classical are (mostly) stored by Album, but for classical they are stored by Composer/Work/Artist. I'm aware there are other ways to get Album Art, and to be honest I'm not really fussed about it, but I am trying many of the features so that I know what they do.
The only extras I have installed thus far are the Chrome App (it took me a few minutes to find out how to run it - using the curious 'App' symbol at the bottom of the new tab page that I have never bothered with before), and Webmin. Webmin is useful, but it took me ages to discover the 'options' feature on the Chrome Extension which allows one to change the default 'http' to 'https'. I ended up finding and editing the constants.js file before finding this option. Couldn't it be preset in the App?
