Rule Violations – Artist Separation

I’ve Got Some Problems With Artist Separation

It seems I have this issue about every three days. M1 schedules all of my Album/Edge category with very few stops for rule violations, then on the third day I get to about 8pm and it is constantly stopping with artist separation violation flags.  And it shows me only a few choices.  The search depth… Continue reading I’ve Got Some Problems With Artist Separation

Why Doesn’t M1 Search the Entire Category to Find A Song That Won’t Violate One of My Formatting Rules?

I have a category of ’90s gold that comes up between 2 and 3 times per hour, throughout the day. The category is filled with 131 songs, so the average turnover is about once every 2 days and 8+ hours. However, on my last two scheduling runs I had one song show up on back-to-back… Continue reading I’ve got a puzzling rotation problem with LE.
