  • Trying to turn off iTunes Match, stays enabled on iOS devices.

    So I have had issues with playlists and such with iTM so I decided to turn it off.  Well I turn it off on my iPhone 4s/iPad 2/new iPad/iPhone 4 and on ALL of the devices NONE of them will successfully turn off iTM.  Settings > Music will show iTM disabled but when you open up the Music app you still see everything and the you can stream/download anything you want.  Here is what I have tried so far:
    Disable iTunes Match everywhere (Mac Pro/iOS Devices) and no change
    iOS Devices (tried all of them) settings > general > usage and delete the music usage.  Then turn off iTunes Match > reboot > open up music app, still see everything.
    I am pulling my hair out and have no clue what else to try.  Thoughts anyone??   It seems strange it is happening on ALL my iOS devices...the only device that seems to work perfectly is the MacBook Air which has no music on it and just uses match.  iOS Devices though are stuck in some strange loop where I cannot turn off iTunes Match.
    Running iOS 5.1 on all devices and iTunes 10.6

    Thanks for the tip, unfortunately that did not work for me.  I turned off match and let it sit for over 3 hours and music never disappeared.  I made sure to turn off auto-lock so the iPhone/iPad didn't go to sleep and neither device ever cleared out the music so I just restored from iCloud backup.
    Now the other thing thats strange is I still have autolock turned off and both devices are sitting on the music app and on my iPhone I have the cloud icon going with the status bar and took 3 hours to get it complete the first time and then someone called me and foolishly answered the phone and then it started all over again.  On my iPad I don't see the cloud icon but i have the spinning wheel going in the corner for almost 24 straight hours now.  I have all my music/artwork back but none of my playlists so I am going to let both these devices sit until the spinning circle stops. 
    I do have a large library of just under 25,000 songs so maybe thats why its taking so long but I haven't had this issue before iOS 5.1 and iTunes 10.6.

  • I started with one itunes account for my iphone and ipad, and now have a second ipad linked to the same itunes.  Can I set up a new itunes account for one ipad without losing what has already been downloaded on it?

    A much simpler solution would be to go into Settings > Store and turn off Automatic Downloads

  • Restored iPhone, signed in with wrong apple ID & can't use iTunes Match for 33 days!!u

    Hi,
    When I connected my iPhone 5 to itunes it said it couldn't read the device and I had to restore it.
    After I did this I signed in with my primary Apple ID, that I use for iCloud,  Mail, iMessage, Photo Stream etc. However most of my purchases & iTunes Match have been made on another Apple ID (that I used before iCloud was introduced)
    Now when I try and turn on iTunes match using this ID I get a message saying:
    "This device is already associated with an Apple ID. You can use iTunes Match on this device with just one apple ID every 90 days.  This device can be used with another Apple ID in 33 days"
    This is very very frustrating as I didn't realise what I had done when signing into the iPhone. I have sent a message to Apple to see if they can reset this before the 33 days so I can sign in with the correct ID for match.
    Anyone else had a similiar problem? I hope that there will be away in future of merging ID's so that this problem doesn't happen - I'm sure it's very common!
    Thanks
    Steven

    Yes, I did as you suggested and signed into the iTunes store with the Apple ID I use for purchases and iTunes Match.
    When I attempt to turn on iTunes match I am given the following message:
    "This device is already associated with an Apple ID. You can use iTunes Match on this device with just one apple ID every 90 days.  This device can be used with another Apple ID in 33 days"
    I believe this happened after I restored my iPhone5(as requested by iTunes) and logged back into the device with the incorrect ID, which was then set up to use for iTunes & App Store Purchases.
    When I then logged out of this ID and tried to use the correct ID, it was then that I received the message saying I cannot use it!
    If you think there is something else I can do to resolve this then please let me know.
    However, I have sent an email to Apple explaining what has happened.  If they have good procedures in place, they should be able to see my iTunes account(s) and the devices associated with it.  Remove the iPhone from the Apple ID that is is currently assocaited with and then I will be able to associate with the correct ID.
    It seems very straight forward!

  • Can I use iTunes Match for 2 iPhones with different music, same account?

    My wife and I each have an iPhone and share an iTunes account.  We share a master music library but each manually manage our music on our iPhones.  So she has certain songs on her phone and I have different ones on mine, both coming from the same master library.  I'm trying to figure out if I can use iTunes Match in this scenario.  I don't want to see her songs on my iPhone.  Is there a way to only see music on my iPhone if I use Match or am I stuck seeing my entire library on my iPhone?

    I think I'm getting it finally, thanks for the clarification.  So at least I know there is a way to not see all music in my library from my iPhone. 
    So in my case i have about 800 songs on my iPhone out of about 1600 on my iTunes library.  If I'm understanding correctly I would have to enable Match on my iPhone, then turn off the "show all music" option.  This in turn should leave me with my original 800 songs listed which I woud then have to download from the cloud.  Once I have all of my 800 songs back down from the cloud I won't be required to download them again from that phone. 
    A worse scenario would be that I enable Match, and then have to find my 800 songs out of the total 1600 manually from the list and then download them from the cloud.
    Which scenario is correct?

  • Problem in using 2 IDs for iTunes music purchase downloads and using iTunes Match for 1 ID

    Dear support managers,
    We are using 1 macbook pro and 2 apple ID for purchasing iTunes music together (Me and my wife).
    Actually, I have bought 1 year service of iTunes match on my apple ID and have been using well the service after download the purchased musics under the apple ID I am using.
    But once my wife associated the macbook pro with her apple ID to download the musics she purchased,
    I have not been able to use the iTunes Match service I have subscribed already.
    The message said
       "This computer is already associated with an Apple ID. You can use iTunes Match on this computer with just one Apple ID every 90 days. You cannot associate this computer with a different Apple ID for 90 days"
    I can neither purchase another computer for solving this situation nor want to purchase another iTunes Match service on my wife's apple ID.
    Please help me out to solve this issue.
    Thanks and best regards,

    Hi,
    You can only use one Apple ID with iTunes match. Purchasing another match subscription using wife's Apple ID is not a solution. I can only suggest that you use your ID for match and all iTunes music purchases.

  • Why does it take so long for iTunes Match to  synch with IOS Device?

    This weekend I ripped about 15 CD's that I had purchased from Amazon.com. For some reason it took a long, long time to get into iMatch. Granted some of the CD's weren't popular and may have needed to actually upload as opposed to match with already stored music. But some were new, and popular releases.
    Typcially I rip, let iMatch do its thing and just stream the music, not download, to my IOS devices. I did leave my iMac running for several hours, and even after iTunes on the iMac showed an successful match some music didn't show up for a day, or if it did it was "ghosted" and I could not get it to stream.

    have the same problem since upgrading to i tunes 7 and can only guess it's the size of my library - nearly 200gb. A friend of mine who's library is 20 gb or so has no such problems. If there's another reason and we can do something about it I too would love to know!

  • Is there anyone out there who has used iTunes Match for a large music collection who actually likes and recommends it?

    I have over 16,000 custom selected songs in my library. It's the most important thing on my computer by far. Before I purchase Match, I would like to know if other users really like it.
    When you purchase Match and all your tunes have been matched or uploaded, what do you do with your current iTunes library?
    It's my understanding that you can stream tunes through your Mac computers but that you have to download them to an iPad, iPod or iPhone if you play the tunes through them, right?
    When iTunes Match matches the tunes, does it put them where you had them prior to the match. I.e., will your library look the same as when you started?

    When you purchase Match and all your tunes have been matched or uploaded, what do you do with your current iTunes library?
    You need do nothing with it. You can keep it on your hard drive to access locally.
    It's my understanding that you can stream tunes through your Mac computers but that you have to download them to an iPad, iPod or iPhone if you play the tunes through them, right?
    Yes, that's correct.
    When iTunes Match matches the tunes, does it put them where you had them prior to the match. I.e., will your library look the same as when you started?
    It presents the library as it was originally on my hard drive, but then I don't have my library's organization customized.

  • HT4914 Can I use Itunes match for my movies as well?

    if not, can I could use iCloud, but I would have to pay for it, even if I bought them at itunes, right?

    iTunes Match only applies to music. If you mean that you want to stream your movies rather than having to download them to your device, that to the best of my knowledge is not possible, at least as of this time.
    Regards.

  • To use itunes match on my new ipad do I have first connect ist to the PC

    I can't get my music from the cloud downloaded on my new IPAD mini. Is it necessary first to activate and conect it with a computer and iTunes match?

    If you buy it on the iPad in the iTunes app then you will need to be connected to wifi to buy it and for it to download on the iPad - it will download and be stored in the Videos app. Once it has finished downloading you don't then need to be connected to wifi to watch it.

  • Help needed using ITunes Match for Music and freeing up space on IPad?

    I have moved my music from IPad to ITunes Match Cloud.  I find that it is just copied there and is still on my IPAD.  I am trying to free up space on my IPad so do I delete the music on my IPad, or do I delete the music on my IMac and sync to remov

    King Penguin's advice is always sound, spot on and he has really give you the best all around solution for what you want to do....but you can also delete your music directly from the iPad and download it again when you want it again. These days, not all people use iTunes with their iPads and many iPad owners dont even own computers. I assume that you do have a computer running iTunes since you asked about iTunes Match, but since you didn't know how ITM works, maybe you don't own a computer, so I'm just offering another alternative.
    You can go to Settings>General>Usage>Manage Storage>Music and remove music in there via the Edit button as well as swiping across songs or albums in the music app in order to get the red delete button. If you want to download the music again, just go to the purchased tab of the iTunes app, tap on Music, Not on this iPad and all of your purchased music will appear. You can also go to Settings>iTunes & App Store>Show All Music>on. That will make all of your music in the cloud appear in the music app and you can tap on the cloud icon in order to download the songs again.
    The only caveat to this solution is that of the music is no longer available in the iTunes Store, you cannot download it again. On occasion, things do get removed from the iStores, so it is possible that could happen.

  • How do I get iTunes Match to recognize my IOS device?

    I just subscribed to iTunes Match thourhg itunes on my iMac desktop computer. I have confirmation that there are more than 200 songs available in iCloud. Immediately after subscribing I was able to listen to music on my iPad. Today, however, when I attempt to turn on iTunes Match on my iPad the message, "You are not currently subscribed to iTunes Match" appears.  It requests that I use iTunes on my computer to subscribe. So why isn't my iPad recognizing my subscription to iTunes Match and iCloud? When I open Music on the iPad, the songs show up, but they will not play.

    iTunes Match is shut off on my iPad. The problem is that when I attempt to turn iTunes Match on by going to Settings, Music, and touch iTunes Match, it briefly switches on, then shuts off and displays the message that I am not subscribed. But my computer indicates that I am subscribed. iTunes Match worked on my iPad when I first subscribed, but now it keeps insisting that I am not subscribed..

  • Can I use iTunes Match on an ATV without a TV attached?

    I've got an Apple TV2 that I use for music-only playback, attached to my hifi (using Toslink output, with nothing connected to the HDMI output). It works well with airplay and home sharing, but I'd like to use iTunes Match (airplay from an ios device seems susceptible to glitches, and the Mac with the iTunes library on it is normally suspended if I'm not working).
    However, I can't see a way to control playback from iTunes Match without a screen attached. The Apple Remote app lets me play music using home sharing, but you can't really access the menu portion without a tv attached to the ATV2 to see what's happening.

    Hi,
    i'm just following this thread and have the same problem as the first poster.
    I would love to go to my IPAD with ICloud match enabled and listen to music, but on a proper AV-Receiver system without having a cable attached to the IPAD  and WITHOUT turning the TV on and WITHOUT running my laptop all the time.
    If i understood this correctly, there are 2 options:
    1.) buy the Airport Express and connect it the to the AV-Receiver and use Airplay.
    2.) buy the new Apple TV 2 and enable/sync it with ITunes Match.
    As far as i understood the main difference is, that on option 1 with Airport Express, the music is still downloaded to my IPAD (16 GB) and then using Airplay to stream it via the Airport Express to my AV-receiver. .  So i have to cleanup space after listening to music, otherwise i might run out of space some day....
    Also there is another drawback of this method, the battery consumption, because the IPAD streams all the time while listening to music.
    Using Itunes Match on Apple TV 2 doesn't download the songs to the ATV 2 , but streams it, because it has no HD capacities..The IPAD is working as a Remote using the latest "Apple Remote App".
    This would not consume any battery on the IPAD, since the music process is running on the ATV 2.
    As far as i can see, it is possible with the latest firmware of ATV2 and latest IOS enabled.
    However, i din't manage to find a statement of how the remote App looks like. All the youtube videos i found show the IPAD/Iphone,/IPOD actually remote controlling the ATV2 software on the TV screen. 
    Open the Remote app on your device (in this case iPhone). Select the Apple TV you want to use iTunes Match with. You'll see a number of icons in the bottom of the screen. The music related ones (Playlists, Genres, Artists, Albums etc) show your iTunes Match library. If you start playing one of these, it will be streamed from iTunes to your Apple TV. No need for a computer with iTunes to be on.
    When i open the Remote App on my IPAD i only get a selection of "enable home sharing" or "add media library". I can't find the Apple TV icon or any icons in the bottom of the screen. Only these 2.
    I guess, this is just because i don't have an ATV 2 yet.
    Does the Remote App show a screen like my music library on my IPAD ? With all the nice album art etc. ?
    If not, i would rather go with option 1 with all the drawbacks of space, battery, etc...
    Please reply, if any of you has made any experience with it.
    Thanks for beeing patient, but i need to know which streaming device i should by.
