Rebuild playlists ? (6.0.38)

Post by w8rn8r » Mon Dec 08, 2014 8:59 am

The 6.0.38 Twonky server on my Buffalo Linkstation mini fails to create my custom playlists upon starting or restarting. Rescanning media files won't help; my only workaround is to have it rebuild the db. Is there any way (startup parameter, rpc action, ...) other than a db rebuild to make it (re-)create just the playlists ? Obviously, the need for manual intervention after every restart is annoying, and so is the long scan time (15-20 min for my collection).

My playlists are fairly large. I'm creating them based on ratings (MP3 tag) being 4 or higher combined with genres. So, one of these playlists is for highly rated Jazz tunes, another one for highly rated rock songs, etc. A few additional ones are combinations of highly rated songs across multiple genres. Having these allows me to listen to good stuff in a random fashion (shuffle turned on).

Thanks,
