    I'm having a weird problem with how music shows up on my iPhone 6+ with iTunes Match and was wondering if anyone is having the same problems:

    1) This album was purchased in iTunes. I downloaded songs 3, 4, and 6 to the phone but not the others. However, it is showing that I downladed all of the songs, except song 2 which is greyed out for some reason

    2) So this album is in iTunes Match but greyed out. I'm guessing this is because I have not downloaded this album from the cloud onto iTunes on my computer?

    3) All of these song should be downloaded and available on my phone, but only 1 is able to play, the rest are greyed out.

    4) I never downloaded either of these 2 songs to my phone, yet there they are!

    5) I have this whole album in iTunes Match (purchased from iTunes). For some unknown reason, it is only showing these two random songs and I can't even play them!

    So, this thing is all over the place and I can't figure out why. Just for informational sake, Show All Music is selected to ON and iTunes Match is selected to ON in General Settings on the phone.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    When was the last time that iTunes on your computer did a match?

    Just a follow up to this, I have determined that it is Apple TV causing the random downloads to my iPhone. Don't ask me how or why it's doing it, but I know that it is. When a song gets played through iTunes Match on my Apple TV during shuffle mode, that song will show up in my iPhone soon after. Worst part is, that it can't be deleted from the phone as it doesn't show up in the Manage Storage part of the phone.

    :mad:

    The whole thing is frustrating and I'm about ready to dump iTunes Match if they don't get their crap together.
