Has anyone found a solution to the smart playlist problem.

Hello,
After many calls to Apple regarding my smart playlists not syncing correctly I figured I'd try the forums. Since iTunes 9 (back in November) my playlists have not been syncing correctly, at all and it's not just a case of the songs being out of order, the entire playlist/s is incorrect, with songs I didn't even add to the list.
I only have 16gb to play with on my phone, my entire library is over 40gb, so I depend on smart playlists so that only selected songs (4 star rated or better) make it to my iPhone.
Other then unchecking live update, is there any other solutions that actually work? I'm way beyond frustrated with this issue and the fact that they STILL haven't fixed it.
iTunes 9.0.3
iPhone 3.1.3
Both were just updated this week, the iPhone this afternoon.
Thank you for any help!
Regards,
Eric

Don't know if my problem is same as yours..after Lion install, frozen cursor in password field when logging in after starting up, beach ball. Couple of trips to Apple store, a number of phone calls to troubleshoot with Applecare. The last fellow who helped me found a workaround, just can't log in. He said engineers have reports of others with this problem so it's not just my machine but fix would probably come in software update. Been dealing with this since first week of Lion download. Hopefully they'll fix it eventually. I can use macbook now, but don't like not being able to have a screen login via password. No plans to ever again download a new op system on a mac...had no trouble installing win7 on older dell from vista.

  • Has anyone found a solution to the login problem with Lion?

    I upgrade my 27" iMac Quad-core last week to Lion and everything was fine. I shutdown after a software upgrade and now I can't log in. Of course, Apple support is closed. I tried a number of the solutions on this site to no avail. Has anyone found a solution? *** has apple done to my system?

  • Has anyone found a solution to the issue of default email account on iPhone continually changing?

    I am seeing an irritating problem with the default mail account, calendar and contacts list on my iPhone 4.
    Every so often (I think it happens randomly after syncing or even just connecting the iPhone to my iMac without syncing) I notice that some or all of my default email account, calendar and contacts list have changed away from my desired default (which is my Exchange account).
    The iPhone is running iOS 4.3.5 (8L1) and I'm using iTunes 10.4.1 on my iMac.
    I found this discussion: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/1639451 dating back 2 years to the days of iOS 2.1 without any solution. Googling hasn't helped me find any answers yet.
    I have 5 accounts set up on the iPhone - a MobileMe "Find my phone" account that's only used for that purpose, not email, a GMail account, a couple of vanilla IMAP accounts and my main, Exchange 2010-based account that I use for mail, contacts and calendar.
    Most frequently after a change I find that the default email has switched to the GMail account, the calendar and contacts lists have switched to my iPhone and most of my Exchange account mail folders are empty and have to re-sync when I tap on them.
    I know from Googling that other people have been seeing similar issues.
    Has anyone found a workaround or solution?

    Has no one found any solutions to this?
    Or at least what causes it (so that it might be avoided)?
    I find it difficult to believe this issue has existed so long in iOS without being addressed!

  • Has anyone found a solution to the poor battery life in Mavericks?

    Hi all,
    I was wondering if anyone has found a reliable solution to the poor battery life after updating to Mavericks. I tried to have the Mac shutdown by letting it go all the way dead and then charge it back up but it still is lousy. To literally see the battery guage go down in such a short period of time is surprising as I didn't have this in my previous OS. My machine is a five month old Macbook Pro Retina. I want to say I started seeing this change after installing the last Mail update for Mavericks. I definitely didn't encounter it after the initial update to Mavericks.
    Thoughts, comments, ideas?
    Ed

    Read through the posts on the right side of the page under 'More Like This'. Several fixes have been mentioned amongst them. But as there was an issue in Mountain Lion that was rectified with an update then it may just be a case of waiting to see if Apple issue a solar update for Mavericks. Remember it has only been out two weeks so I would doubt that if there is an update coming for it that they would release it without thorough testing.
    Cheers
    Pete

  • Has anyone found a solution to the poor downconverting of HD video to standard def DVD?

    I discovered the double-line/aliasing/interlacing problem back in 2008 when I started shooting HDV and burning it to DVD using FCP 6, Compressor and DVDSP.
    At the time the web was rife with similar experiences and some time-consuming "cures" such as the Bonsai technique which usually had little beneficial effect.
    Apparently there was a weakness with QuickTime and Compressor.
    I recently started shooting AVCHD converted to ProRes 422 and the problem persists even when using FCP X.
    So it looks as though the latest Mac apps contain the same inherent weaknesses as legacy FCP. (It was claimed that Windows apps had workarounds that produced  superior results to Macs but I cannot verify that).
    So has anyone come up with a reasonably quick and simple cure recently?
    Preferably for FCP X but I would be happy with one for FCP 7 etc.
    For anyone not aware of the problem I have just found these on a google search.

    Whether this is quick or simple could be subjective.
    I have found consistent success with exporting a reference or self-contained QT and then re-importing and placing the HD file in a 16x9 SD sequence and then letting FC do the down-convert(actually a Kona LHe card is doing the work). Export your SD movie and then compress for DVD in Compressor.
    Would if you have a 120 minute show? This approach is still way faster than running a 120 minute show through Compressor on a Mac Pro 2.4GHz Quad-core with 8GB of ram and Qmaster.
    I find Compressor to be consistently inconsistent when it comes to any HD to SD conversion for DVD no matter what the source is. Sometimes it works wells sometimes it doesn't.
    I would suggest a test with one minute of your most complex footage and even play with no interlacing on the SD sequence. It may seem counter-intuitive but in my experience it works.
    I am using FCP7 and cannot say how different your X experience will be.

  • Has anyone found any solution for the noise problem for an iMac 21.5"?

    I have recently bought a new iMac 21.5" 1TB.  There is constant noise which sounds like it comes from the disk drive.   It is very loud and annoying and you can hear it 10 ft away even.  I took it to the Apple store and of course it is too noisy in the store for them to hear it.  I left it at the store for them to check and you guess it, they did not notice any disk drive problem and return back to me.   I am not an advanced users and I tell you I am not complaining out of the blue and it is not my imagination.  After digging through the community, I seem to find a number of threads indicating that there is noise issue on the iMac.  
    Now I am worried that I have returned my iMac.  If this is not a defect, I am thoroughly disappointed in Apple for designing such a crappy product.  How can they let a product like that out?  
    Before I give up, does anyone out there have any advice?  Is my only option now return the unit?

    Millions have not had a problem so perhaps yours is due to a bad install. What troubleshooting steps have you done? Restart, reset, restore from backup, restore as new are steps you can take to try and resolve the problem.

  • HT201375 Has anyone found a solution to the "Mavericks will not install new fonts" Issue? Has apple even admitted it yet?

    Question is simple enough, Oh and by the way, my system is NOT what this forum page has decided to tell me that it is (no way evident to change it).

    Hi Arthur,
    Thanks for taking the time to reply.
    1. I am glad your Mavericks doesn't have the problem. I am sure there are a lot of Mavericks out there that don't have the problem, and yes, you are correct, I, along with ALL of the other people that are complaing of this problem all over the internet, including this support forum itself, are having problems with our own Mavericks installations.
    2. Agreed, Apple doesn't have a good track record of admitting to the bugs in its Operationg Systems, but don't worry, Microsoft is just as bad. Technology is about making money after all.
    3. Thanks for the instructions for updating my profile.
    4. I took the precaution of removing all of my data from this machine. and wiped its harddrive.
    I did a fresh install of Snow Leopard (the OS it came with), upgraded to Mountain Lion, and then upgraded to Mavericks before doing anything at all to the machine, and before installing anything on it.
    So with this Fresh, brand new install of Mavericks (I dont trust upgrades - for good reason) I installed Open Office, Adobe Creative Suit CS6, Google Chrome, Filezilla, Firefox and Thunderbird, and Microsoft Remote Desktop client.
    That's it.
    The font that will not install is any of the fonts from the Univers family.
    We have had this font in our office for the seven years I have worked there. It installs fine on all Macs from Tiger (10.4) to Mountain Lion (10.8) (I have just finished tesing this on a number of these machines).
    We have one other mavericks machine but this font was already installed on it when it was upgraded from Mountain Lion to Mavericks so it works.

    This is a lot more information than has been provided by almost all of the other posts on all the forums I have been reading about this problem, and most of the posts have a lot of people chiming in saying,
    "It works fine for me, so it must not be a problem".
    Not a lot of help has been forthcoming for the others in this same situation that I have been reading of, and most are resorting to Third Party Programs in an attempt to get fonts installed, all with varying degrees of success.
    I am not willing to use a third party program to do something the operationg system should be able to do itself.
    I have tried pasting the fonts themselves into all of the various fonts folders in the OS, to no avail.
    I will be very interested to hear what you make of the information I have supplied.
    Thank you again for your reply. I look forward to hearing back from you.

    This seems to be an annoying part of the newer OS.  When I first got my Pearl in 2008, I didn't have that occur.  However once the OS got upgraded, and now with the Tour, it seems like that is the way it works.  Not clear to me why they would have thought this is preferable.

    I have the same problem, but don't expect Apple to help! I rang their help line and explained the situation and that the same experience is reported all over their forum and they would not assist unless I paid for a one year help subsciption.
    This company has lost the plot! They create software that universally will not work then expect customers to pay to have it fixed. Technically I should walk straight into the nearest apple shop and ask for a refund, as the device is no longer fit for purpose!
    Congratulations Apple for the best ant-promotional App on the market and your astounding lack of service ethos.

  • 24" Cinema display is flickering every 30 seconds or so. Has anyone found a solution?

    I have a 2009 Power Mac tower with a 24" cinema display also 2009. About a year ago the display started flickering, like it was turning on and off. I've got a duel display set up and the other one (older acrylic 20") works fine. I've checked the cords, updated to the latest soft wear, at least I think I have. I see others having the same issue. Has anyone found a solution? This is really annoying when trying to do graphics work. Any help would be much appreciated
