    Hi All,

    I have taken the plunge and purchased the iTunes Match subscription, and now have over 11,000 songs that I can access. I was having a bit of trouble with the iOS5 devices so have written a blog about it here: http://www.rhysadams.co.uk/2011/12/how-to-enable-itunes-match-on-ios5-25552

    Also, on top of this. I was having trouble with other Mac's accessing the library. It was a case of me being to impatient. Wait until the main library has finished, and then turn iTunes Match on. Works brilliantly. I use it with my Macbook Air, as the Hard Drive isn't as big.

    Thanks

    Rhys

    PS. Any questions, please put below and I will try and help!

    What's your setup? Is it 1 MacBook Air and an iPhone? I'm having some issues syncing everything properly with a Mac Mini, MacBook Pro and iPhone 4. Mainly just not sure if any need the actual file of the song once it's been uploaded to the cloud. Also song info isn't carrying over from one device to the other (i.e. "Plays")

    No, once it's uploaded, or matched you don't.

    The plays registering just seems to be a bit unreliable for some people.
