Thanks everyone for the feedback!

Regarding the radio menu (4), I'm seeing the issue as well, and I've seen an error in the logs, so we'll look into it.
...

Cool. Let me know if you want me to test anything.


1) Albums work fine for me, so I can't reproduce it. Can you share more details about your setup (os, lms version..), and some logs (set ickStream logs to debug in lms, settings, advanced, logging, then browse Deezer, and share the server.log from lms, settings, information)

That always makes it hard. Makes me think I've done something wrong.

2) We are still working on implementing the fast forward feature.

Cool. Let me know if you want me to test anything.


3) This should work, but may take some time. A lms restart (plugin restart) may help speed up the process. We'll try to improve this.

I tried that. I also tried logging Ickstream out of Deezer and then back in, restarting LMS at the same time.
No difference.
Is there a way to get debugging logs from the Ickstream plugin?


5) before you ask :) we are working on implementing the artist radio, which will be implemented in a future update of the plugin.

Sweet. Looking forward to it...


1.) As far as Albums, anything I search for in Deezer seems to work fine. However, if I go to Deezer's Website and add a Favorite Artist or Album these do not show up in Ickstream. When I look at my Albums, I get the message 'No content is available'. Also any favorite artists I save in the Deezer Account, does not show up in Ickstream. Maybe this explains what we are finding.

I concur.


FYI:
I'm running both LMS 7.7.5 and Squeezelite v1.8 on Debian 7.8 (wheezy) for Arm7.

You're right. I just takes a LOOOOONNNGGG time to update.
Artists that I added almost a week ago are starting to appear in my list.
As I said earlier though... restarting LMS and making Ickstream log out of/log in to Deezer, doesn't seem to make any real difference....

Weirdly, I just noticed that Albums are starting to show up in my lists as well. They definitely weren't any there before....

Update:

My Artists and Albums that I added in Deezer are now also appearing. It seems to have taken a couple days for this to happen.

Are there any plans to save Artists and Albums in Ickstream Itself?

The search function in Deezer via Ickstream only returns 25. Whether it be Artists, Albums or Songs.

Thanks for the feedback.

I've mentioned it to Erland, we'll look into it and see if there is a reason for returning 25 or if we should fix it.

Regarding the Favorites, we have implemented Favorites in ickStream, but I think its not ported to the LMS/squeezebox version at this point.

Thanks for the reply. I have been using Deezer Elite for about a month now with no problems. (I bought a Sonos, but use the SBT mostly) My issues are: (And I may be repeating myself)

1.) The biggest issue is the lack of "Smart Mix" support. I've communicated with Michael about this and he says that it is "On his List", but is currently busy. I am 'addicted' to this Pluggin as it really helps you discover new music. Deezer is supported, but not Deezer Elite.
2.) In LMS the track playing shows the BPS that is currently streaming. Deezer Elite always shows '0'
3.) The radio function for Music Genre does not work.

How many matches would you prefer that it showed ?
The API returns 25 matches in the first chunk so that's why we currently only return 25 but we could adjust it so it returns more if people feel that would be usable.

I think 25 is fine, if that was the intent of the developer. Maybe all that is needed is to display "That the first 25 are the only ones shown" -- Or something to that effect.

Hi Guys,

Any progress on the problem of favorite albums and artists selected from the Deezer Elite web site posting to ickStream? I am having the same problem as reported above. I added my Deezer account to ickStream so I can stream to Squeezelite on a renderer at my main system and a Touch in a bedroom and it works well and sounds great. I am getting a FLAC stream which I have confirmed several ways.

The problem that I am having is the same as reported by others. I saved several album favorites and only one shows up on ickStream. I also saved several artist favorites and all showed up that I added the first time but none of the second round I added has shown up yet on ickStream. All of these selections are showing on the Deezer Elite web site and changes there take effect immediately.

I am using LMS 7.9 and a Logitech wireless controller. I do not have this problem with my Tidal account or my Qobuz account. All favorites from those show up normally both on LMS as viewed on a PC and on the wireless controller and on the Touch.

There must be a sync issue with Deezer Elite.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can work around this for now but I am sure that you want it to work properly as much as we all do.

Thank you for all your efforts.

Bob Flood

Just a quick follow up to my post above.

The artists and albums that do show up in ickStream from Deezer Elite are the first ones that I added on my initial session after opening the account. Nothing I have done after that first session is syncing.

I have tried logging out of and back into ickStream from LMS and also deleting and re-adding the Deezer service.

I also tried adding a track as a favorite from my wireless controller but it does not show up on the website as a favorite.

Also, my listening history on the website does not show what I have listened to via ickStream.

There does not seem to be any two way communication between Deezer and ickStream for my account at this time.

Hope this helps,

Bob
