We either have very bad luck or CDJ has favorite CDs. It seems that when are in random selection mode (from a search result which includes just about all
our CD collection) there are CDs that CDJ will invariably pick and we have
CDs that it has never picked. We have over 300 CDs in two changers and the
search results usually list over 200 CDs. We run CDJ long enough to give
its random number generator a chance.
One possible pattern is that it likes CDs (or for that matter) tracks
that are near the top the search result. I wonder if the selection
algorithm has a slight bias to the early matches.
Another problem that I've seen recently is the CDJ and slink-e getting confused.
This is similar to the problem I had earlier where the slink-e would go
deaf. It appears that it can still transmit commands but it stops hearing
status on the s-link bus. (Colby, I think I have current versions of the
CDJ and the slink-e). What is different about this from the previous bug
is that power cycling the slink-e is not sufficient to bring everything back
in order. I had to power cycle slink-e and exit and reenter CDJ.
The S-Link viewer was showing sendX errors when this happened. If it happens
again I will try to get more log data.
I'm running CDJ with Slinkserv.
Oh yeah one more bug. CDJ keeps thinking I have a fourth CD player
