The Olive contains now over 4000 albums, and I have still some 1000 to rip, and 1100 to describe. Sigh.

It is beginning to look as my life work.
It is an impressive library, to say the least. Since you understand the Sqlite database, in principal you could use that to write the info back into more conventional tags (ID3). I think all the unique Maestro settings for classical also appear in the expanded ID3 formats. Something for a slow day.

Haha, I hope my slow days wil never come. I also hope that my Olives will live as long as I love music. But indeed, if needed, I would try to convert the database to a format that other streamers can accept. It's just that I never came across one that does the same for classical music as the Olive, but I have to admit that I did not search for it thoroughly.

A few days ago the cd-rom player in one of them seemed to be mal-functioning. It did not recognize cd's anymore that it still did a few hours earlier. I had a spare cd-rom player laying around, and I could easily swap them. Problem solved. For those purposes I even have a spare Olive 4.

I would not bother very much, I my Olive hadn't been modified in a musical sort of way, which made me in turn buy so much cd's and describe them. Which alas makes it a hassle to switch to another streamer. So that I try to avoid that.
