Loved songs from iTunes not synced

I've sent the log package.

I've noticed beaTunes doesn't sync the Loved songs from iTunes anymore. All hearts in beaTunes are unchecked. I use Loved songs to indicate singles from albums, so it's quite important to me.

Thanks for getting back to me.

    Hi Alexander,

    have you tried forcing synchronization? I.e. sync, and when you are asked whether you want to force it, please do. If you are not asked, simply sync again until you are asked.

    Hey Alexander,

    just a bit of background about this one: The Loved field is not available via Apple's standard API, but only via the AppleScript API. During a regular synchronization, beaTunes only checks the (very fast) standard API and queries iTunes/Music using AppleScript for added or changed songs. Unfortunately, a change in Loved in iTunes/Music is not recognizable from the outside, so those tracks fall through the cracks.

    When you Force a synchronization, beaTunes asks iTunes/Music for data for all songs.

    Hi Hendrik

    Thanks for the clear explanation, as usual. It's great to understand what
    happens (or doesn't happen) in the background sometimes.

    I'm very much enjoying the beaTunes software. I use it daily to enjoy my
    music library to the fullest.
    So keep up the great work!
