Hi all,

I' new to madsoninc and as well new to the forum,
therefore a warm "hello" to the members, users, moderators, admins, and of course, the developer(s) :-)

Yesterday, I've installed Madsonic onto a Synology 1813+ and right now, its running well. (The new download-page is great with all the different builds, before that, it was a little bit hard to read thrugh the posts for a installation and trouble-shooting guide.)

ATM I'm trying/testing/clicking/indexing/wondering/reading/waiting, and listening to the music.

Later on, I will be asking the obvious questions ;-)

Ok, after some weeks with a lot of (unanswered) support+bug tickets, days of trying and testing, broken databases, stopping music, incomplete re-scanning, etc., I came to the conclusion, that I'll wait for some months and then maybe try madsonic again with hopefully more luck/working features and fixed bugs on my synology DSM.

Thank you all for helping and reading ;-)

If I can be of any assistance to get the madsonic run smoother on DSM, just tell me.
For now, I uninstalled the package. (but it should be no problem to re-install)

Cheers and enjoy life!

Hello again,

its been a while but now I'm back to check all the new and improved things madsonic has to offer :-D
I'm really exited, because the changelogs look very promising.

I wish myself a happy and successful testing and
listening to all my good music! (Thats whats it all about, isnt it?)

It was an exiting month of testing, trying and listening to my music !

Unfortunately, something went wrong with the Madsonic install and I don't have a clue what and how to fix it.

Unfortunately², nobody is here to take care and so I'm going to uninstall Madsonic and going for a nice holliday.

I'm coming back the next year, or so, I guess, hoping, some of my (new) feature requests may be implemented and all of the bugs are fixed ;-)

For me, it seems Madsonic has quite some problems which need to be addressed when working with huge amounts of music, like we have.
Also, a lot of settings are not well described and there is no help anywhere to get a decent idea what will change or what are the impacts for changing a setting.
The working is sometimes very confusing, too.
(A Wiki or Documentation with A LOT of screenshots and adequate descriptions would be very helpful for such a huge amount of settings. The forum isnt the right place IMHO to look for questions like: "what will happen, when I click this setting? I don't see any changes, since I activated/deactivated it...")

Madsonic Server worked much better than the last time, I tried Madsonic, but hey, maybe just because of my RAM Update :-> Who knows.
