Hi - was wondering if there is a switch such that jaikoz would prompt with the musicbrainz suggestions for a match in order to allow a decline? I couldn't find anything like this in the documentation. I ask because i set the match to 100% yet still get many mismatches.
thanks

Do these tracks have an Acoustic Id , the 0-100% setting only applies when you have only metadata so would be ignored for these tracks. The theory is that the acoustic id is much more likely to be accurate than any metadata. I havent seen any cases where it has been completely wrong, although I have seen cases where it matches wrong album or is the wrong version of the song.

If this is not the case I would be interested to see cases where the metadata is returning 100% but is in fact wrong, please could send me some examples.

There is no switch at present, but this option in the form of a manual/semi-automated musicbrainz lookup will be added in the near future.

I had this same problem last night.

The first one I came upon was eMOTIVe by A perfect Circle.
Three songs: Passive, People are People and When the Levee Breaks came up as 3 different songs by Anthrax. I don't recall exactly which ones as I am at work now.

Also I think one of my Beck albums tracks came up as a German Drinking song.

A feature like Picards to pick the actual song would be great or at least having a check to see if the current Artist/Album/Track name in the Tag is similar before replacing it would be nice.

Another suggestion I have is that if a track has a MbID to have the option to go ahead and update the metadata to that ID. So say the Auto-Match gets it wrong and I look the proper ID up in MB database and place that in the MbID field, when you do the Auto-Match just have it download the Data for that ID.

Anyways chances are I will purchase a copy of the program tonight, I really like the spreadsheet interface and the ease with which all the data including art can be updated. Keep up the good work.

At the moment there are a couple of issues with MusicBrainz returning 100% matches when they dont really match. I am trying to work round this but what I dont want to do is to start rejecting correct matches because the tag data is slightly different. What you can do with the latest release is only mtach based on puid, if no puid match is done it wont match by metadata even if it finds 100% matches.

Do you mean, select from possible matches I am working on adding a manual/semi-automatic musicbrainz lookup at the moment. Feel free to add ideas at this post http://www.jthink.net/jaikozforum/posts/list/75.page

Yes that would be a good feature, Ill try and get that in soon.
