ITunes DJ suggestion (looking for feedback)

Firstly, I HAVE sent this in as a suggestion already, but I am looking for feedback and suggestions from any of you to improve this.
I just got into using iTunes DJ, and I think it is great. The only problem I have is the lack of simplicity to request songs. Not dealing with the wireless aspect (iPhones), DJ seems like it could be simplified rather than searching around different sections of iTunes, right clicking, dragging/dropping, whatever. This problem can arise when you are using this application for a party, and just anyone can walk up to request a song. Not everyone will know how it works, so they could easily search around and accidentally double click a song, defeating the purpose of DJ. Instead, why not just have a "view browser" option inside DJ, but with a few tweaks to go along with this specific application. The main change would be viewing "songs" in the browser along with "artist", "album", etc. Another difference, would be that these songs cannot be double clicked in order to solve the double clicking issue. Once the song is selected, there is a "request" button that, once pushed, it goes right into the queue just like any other meathod. This route, there is no leaving DJ. It can always stay right on the same page. Now, while some might not run into these kind of problems, it will still streamline the request feature a lot smoother for everyone. Lastly, Since DJ can have a selected source, such as a specific playlist, the browser should have one as well. This would be nice if you want to allow your guests to select any song, but have the main source of DJ play from a certain playlist. I have taken the liberty to edit a quick version of what I think it could look like. I would appreciate any feedback.
Oh, and i thought of a random button as well, but didnt know what it should look like or how it would work specifically.

I can post a higher quality if needed.

I thought I might give some updated information based on my current findings. It seems like it is actually a proximatey problem. Taking my computer closer to the unit seems to resolve the problem, but it is definately not out of range where I was trying to transmit from. I was still getting almost a full signal. Has anyone else had the same problem with the range not being very good?

  • Looking for feedback on Photoshop web compatibility tool

    We initially build https://www.oss-usa.com/psd-parser?promo=psd-parser as internal tool for validating Photoshop artwork against known web compatibility issues and recently made it available as a free online service.  Looking for feedback from folks actively using Photoshop on web design projects.

    Hello otechcomputing. is this how you want to setup your network?
    If so, Guest Networks cannot be " extended" since it has Website Authentication encryption which the RE1000 does not support. Here are my suggestions:
    1. Main Network WiFi password should be WPA2 Personal (more secured)
    2. Enable Guest Access (password protected)
    3. Reconfigure the RE1000 to connect to the EA6500 (main network) and change the extender's network name and password (still WPA2 Personal). You can name it with "EXT" at the end to designate it as such.

  • Switched from NAS to external harddrive but Itunes is still looking for NAS

    I used to have a NAS (Net attached storage) and i switched to a Seagate 1TB external harddrive, I copied the whole Itunes library, program etc...and it runs but it is 7.6 version so it would not identify my ipod until i updated the software, so i go to update, download the update and go to do the update and I get a error message that it cant locate //nas/disk1 the old destination...I went so far as to delete itunes and Quicktime and redownload itunes 8.1 so i go to install it and it is still looking for //nas/disk1 now i have a folder with 375gb of music and movies and no program to run it.... I try to go into control panel add/delete programs and itunes is still in there so i go to delete and I get a error message that it cant delete it because it cant find //nas/disk1...*** I need help Please someone tell me what i have to do to I was able to delete quicktime but it still shows itunes and it will not let me install itunes...i did a search through the computer and ther are no files for itunes so i do not know why it is still trying to locate it from there....HELP

    Hi,
    The reason that you are getting the ! is because iTunes is still looking for the music on your external hard drive.
    You need to create a new library iTunes: How to open an alternate iTunes Library file or create a new one
    Now turn on iTunes Match and select add this computer. You will now see all your music in the cloud. When you want to add new music, revert to the original library on your external hard drive.

  • Looking for feedback from those who have installed Windows

    I have an Intel iMac - brilliant machine, I love it. I have not installed Windows : I just don't have the need to justify doing it, but I'm glad to know I can if I do need, or just want to.
    Having a Mac is almost like being immune to viruses (almost - I'm not careless). Everytime I use a PC there are message about viruses - it must drive them crazy! And to install Windows on my iMac would render it vulnerable.
    I'm just looking for feedback from those who have taken the plunge: how's it working for you? I'm not so concerned about the speed...more so about .exe files running amok.
    There is no way I will install Windows without a valid need and hearing at least a couple of first hand user experiences

    I HAVE SPENT 1 HOUR TODAY AT THE APPLE SHOP ASKING THE GENIUS GUY - WHY ARE APPLE COMPUTERS IMMUNE TO VIRUS AND HOW DO I PROTECT MY PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM BEING INTERROGATED AND TRANSMITTED TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD.
    MY QUERY STEMS FROM EMAILS - IF THEY HAVE A PICTURE ATTACHED THE MACHINE WILL NOT OPEN THE PICTURES - THE MESSAGE SAYS TO PROTECT MY IDENTITY CLICK HERE IF YOU WISH TO DOWNLOAD. I HAVE TO MAKE A JUDGEMENT TO TRUST THE SITE WHICH SEEMS ODD AND SO WHEN I ALLOW THE DOWN - I DO WONDER WHAT IS GOING ON.
    I DO RUN A SEPARATE PC AND WHEN I DOWN LOAD THE MAILS ONTO THAT COMPUTER MY NORTON ENGAGES AND WARNS OF INFORMATION OF PRIVATE NATURE BEING ATTEMPTED TO BE TRANSMITTED - AT THAT STAGE I CAN STOP THE TRANSMISSION - ON THE MAC I HAVE NO MEANS - THE GENIUS GUY SAYS DON'T WORRY.
    HELP - CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT IS IT ABOUT MAC THAT WOULD SETTLE MY CONCERNS AND ALLOW ME TO DOWN LOAD IMAGES CONTAINED IN EMAIL WITHOUT WORRY OF THE COMPUTER BEING FRISKED FOR DATA AND IT BEING TRANSMITTED INTO THE OUTSIDE WORLD.

    Looking for feedback on K8N Neo NF4 Platinum SLI, LUV THIS BOARD

    Im no pro but with your raid setup you need to stay with bios 3.0, 3.1 or 3.2.  I understand that 3.3 & 3.4 causes problems but the new 3.53 beta bios fixes the problems in 3.3 & 3.4.  See below:
    https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=80933.120
    Regarding your pcie clock, if you are using coolbits and nvidia drivers only (no MSI drivers at all), then I have used nvidia's ntune to help set the clock.  For my x1 msi 6600gt, working backwards from the bus speed optimization it equalled to 106...but I am really not good at this and you should post your question under the VGA portion of this forum for a better answer to that 1 question.
    However, using MSI's DOT works well too and its automated.
    Btw, the pcie setting has nothing to do with your cpu/memory overclock.

  • I cannot install or remove old itunes, install is looking for an msi

  • ITunes wifi sync 'looking for iPhone' then ejects phone

    Hi,
    I have sought an answer to this for a long while with no success. So I have joined ASC to see if any of you folks may help
    My Hardware:
    Apple iPhone 4s
    MacBook Pro (2009)
    TP-Link Router (TD-W8961ND)
    My Problem:
    iPhone connects to mac over wifi and shows up in itunes.
    When I initiate a sync itunes pauses and states 'looking for iPhone'
    The iPhone is then ejected from itunes, without syncing (and no longer shows until I restart itunes)
    Further info:
    I believe this is a router issue as wifi sync works flawlessly over other networks I have used.
    I have enabled uPnP (and have tried disabling it and resetting the router etc).
    I DO NOT believe this is an issue with itunes, iphone or Mac as I can sync over other peoples networks
    Any help appreciated.

    Hello there tastesalittlestrangetome.
    Seems like you've done some excellent troubleshooting already. This Knowledge Base article provides some extensive/thorough steps to review and follow:
    iTunes 10.5 and later: Troubleshooting iTunes Wi-Fi Syncing
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts4062
    But as you've indicated before, the article also mentions the potential of what you've already determined. It does work on other networks:
    Test your device on a different network. If the device works on another network, the issue most likely exists with your router or network configuration. Contact your router manufacturer or Internet service provider for additional troubleshooting.
    Thanks for reaching out to Apple Support Communities.
    Cheers,

  • Windows 7 with iTunes 10.5 keeps telling me iTunes quit working, looking for solution, then tells me Windows will let me know when they find a solution. Help, my phone needa to be synched.

    Windows 7 with iTunes 10.5 loaded and working until I try to update apps or synch my iPhone 4. Windows says iTunes quit working and is looking for solution, then no solution but they tell me if they find one.

    Hi Lorheak,
    thanks for the quick reply. I had the same idea already yesterday. I use Norton Internet Security for a long time now without any problems. I think this a Apple or Microsoft problem, because the popup window which appear come from Windows DEP. I got no message from the firewall with any problem. I check the log files from Norton and Windows already but find nothing. This is a very strange problem. In the past I have had a lot of other problems with iTunes upgrades. Everytime I accept the installation of the newest version I got errors regarding missing "msi" files.
    Greetings Gert

  • HT201210 When I click on the download itunes command after looking for an update, nothing happens.

    I went under help and found look for updates. I clicked on it and itunes found the latest version. When I clicked on download itunes, nothing happened. What should I do?

    With that one, try updating using an iTunesSetup.exe (or iTunes64Setup.exe) downloaded from the Apple website:
    http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
    Does that go through any better for you?

  • Moved files to 'F-drive', but iTunes playlists still looking for 'D-drive'

    I've just reconfigured my hard drives and moved my iTunes folder to my F-drive. All of my playlists are still looking for teh old D-drive.
    Is teher a way of modifying the playlist files?
    Thanks,
    Steven Lyall

    I've had this problem too. Only way I know is either use smart play lists or rebuild your play lists from scratch
    If anybody else has a solution or a program that can resolve this it would be great.

  • Improving ASR9k resilience - Looking for feedback.

    Asking all our customers.  
    Looking for some other examples where we had an issues on the a9k where we might have some gap in system resiliency.  Looking for issues where we might have seen a HW or SW issue and the router didn't handle it in a way you would have preferred to allow network redundancy to take over.  Please provide as much information about the situation as you can.  As well as what behavior you believe should take place?  If you have SRs or bug IDs please include as well. 
    Here are some examples of the past that we have already addressed. 
    CSCuc04493 - Disable LC interfaces if online-diags reports datapath error
    This allows us to shutdown ports where datapath errors occur to allow network redundancy to kick in.

    This has the RSP perform a failover or reload when it loses communication to the fabric.

    Hi Bryan,
    I see the NP performance as an area for improvements. There are certain NP lock conditions where automatic action is taken to recover from this situation, but there is no such thing when it comes to an NP overload scenario. There are certain NP counters which indicate an NP performance overload, but it is cumbersome for the customers to monitor these values. So it would be nice to at least have logging entries if the NP is overloaded or the ability to have actions taken. A typical example would be netflow, which is intensive for the NP because it needs to create frame copies for netflow. There is a punt policer that protects the line card CPU, but with very low sampling rates and small packets at a high rate the NP might get overloaded, leading to intermitting packet loss (rare but possible).
    Cheers,
    Florian

  • Considering buying a 6D looking for feedback from someone who has one

    Looking for reviews of the Canon 6D from users of same

    I have t2i and bought 6d about two weeks ago.
    I'm still learning about 6d but 6d is better in every aspects.
    Worth for the money? Not sure.
    My t2i is good enough for my purpose.
    If I had no camera, I would buy t2(3,4,5)i over 6d(too much money).
    But I would pick 6d over 7d, if I have enough money.
    Again, 6d is very solid, powerful camera (for me) .
