There is no trace of the past.
Is it over with the support for the 'old' Olives xxHD? is there ever coming a new app?
Hi All - I'm feeling a little desperate.
The presumed demise of Olive has me more than a little anxious. I purchased an 04HD soon after it was released and have been slowly uploading favorite CDs these past years. Presently, I have about 900 in the Olive with corrected metadata. This needs to be prefaced by the fact that I'm quite ignorant about computer audio. My experience is limited to the Olive and a download of dBpoweramp, which I've only tried a couple of times on my desktop.
I called Olive about two years ago and asked if there was some way I could use the music files to play on some other device. I did not totally comprehend the answer but was told something about "tarball" files being necessary to avoid copyright lawsuits and that, NO, I could not access the files through anything but the Olive. This made me quite uncomfortable considering I had maybe 200 hours invested in the system, but I crossed my fingers and continued to upload CDs.
Now things are different and I am desperate to "un-tarball" these files. Is there some simple, straightforward system to get my work and music back in some universal format that can be used with most network players? I'm looking at a Bryston Digital Media Player (which can be used with an external hard drive containing music files) as I do not have the ability to have a computer in the vicinity of my audio system and do not want to use wireless.
If this cannot be easily done, but someone can do it for payment then I am a very willing customer.
Many, many thanks for any help.
