Music IP Server is online ! I just tried it.
It would be nice if I type a letter in Update data Combo Box, the Genre with this letter in the first place is selected.
Example: in the Rename or Add Combo box I type R and the selected line is R&B in the open Combo Box or if I type re the selected line is Reggae.
And depending in which Combo Box a line is selected, Enter accepts it (and not going with the mouse to the Rename or Add button and then Click)
It would be nice that you can select (as an example) more than one Arist in the TagBrowse-window.
To get a better overview it is necessary to select Artist like 2Pac, 2Pac & Outlawz or 2Pac feat. Dr. Dre & Roger Troutman etc. when you want to tag the Artist 2Pac.
Hi roger123,
I use MixMeister with MS-Windows and it writes the BPM into the Tag of ID3v23 to TBPM. Jaikoz displays this BPM from the Tag-TBMP in the Edit-Window without any problem in the column BPM.
If Winamp shows you the right names of you songs, so the TAGs are O.K.
You have to adjust you filenames with Preference -> File and Folder Correct -> Rename File From Tags. Check the mask, read the help and then adjust the mask to your needs. After that use STRG+S to save the changes.

Yes, that works better, although needs finessing because if the only match is for a compilation I would want to display that,..... 

Don't hide a compilation, make the background in another color (maybe yellow)

we have two different approachs. You collect Albums and they have to be constistent. I collect only songs and I'm not so interested in Albums but I'm interested in the first release date of that specific song, because I like to listen to music of a specific time-interval (or genre or mood etc.).

If we were just to group tracks by subDirectory it would be okay as long as the user is organizing there files as one album per folder. But this is not always the case either 

That's right, it's not always the case. I organize my collection in folders A, B, C etc. organized by Artist - Title. Because I don't like to have the same song 10 times ore more in different albums. Take a look at Elvis Presley etc. His songs come on various albums again and again. I like to tag one song for the earliest release (maybe from a single not the album or there exist no album). And for my nearly 200k songs I use MusicIP Mixer to do the playlists etc.
I agree
Thanks for pointing out. "Undo" indeed does 50% of what I would like the F12 key to do. The other 50% would be to perform a "Redo" on the selected cell(s). Then that way "Toggle" (F12) would just quickly flip the selected cells back and forth so you could see the changes. While you're at it, key mappings for undo (crtl-z) and redo (crtl-y) would be useful too.  

This is a good idea

When doing a Manual Lookup I have since realised that the first row in the popup window shows the current tag values in my collection so at least the info in displayed there. It just wasn't clear to me initially that the first row was local data and all the other rows were remote data. I'm not sure if this is doable, but it would have been clearer to me that the first row is local data if the first line in the popup did not have a radio button next to it or if perhaps the first row was placed separately just above the title row in the table.  

Same happend to me. When I tried a manual match, I was always looking for the playtime of my song in the AudioView-window, but there I didn't see which original song it was, so I had to remember the line number of this song in the Edit-Window and look up that line number in the ViewAudio-window. In Jaikoz 3.3.4 these original meta-data have a gray background, now I know what this means

Also, regarding setting of preferences to Only Update Empty Fields, I am still confused and need something clarified. If I have set Jaikoz to Only Update Empty Fields for Title and Album and Jaikoz matches a track to a MB track with a different Title and Album field I notice that the GUI DOES change the colour of the cells to Purple (which indicates change) regardless of my preference settings. Are you saying that this highlighting is misleading and that in actually fact the changes are never written to disk when I save?  

@mjw, when you use Autocorrect, have you changed the tasks inside? If no, then the changes in the title- and album-fields might be from the task "Local correct Album" and "Local correct Title" and these changes will be saved!!
