iTunes Match issue. Not playing nice
I have recently begun the iTunes Match journey. There are a number of reasons why, typical I expect. Cloud backup, ran out of local storage on my iPad, and of course a good chunk of my library is now stored as a higher bit rate.
Some of the time it seems to work as I dreamt / expected. Virtually no delay in starting tracks etc. However more often than not when I choose to play a playlist, album or track, all I get is a 1 second pause before the music app moves onto the next track. It cycles through until it finds a track it's happy with playing.
Anyone out there had a similar issue? I'm constantly faced with this issue, and only access iCloud stored tracks over wifi at home and at the office so I presume it's not my connection. This also happens in iTunes on my home and office PC. I even removed all uploaded tracks from iCloud leaving only purchased and matched tracks, issue still persists. It does this with some tracks consistently and others at random.
Any ideas? Would love for this service to work properly if possible. I don't feel like my expectations are too high. I don't really want to start the journey again but would consider it if anyone has had success with a fresh start.
