    Just subscribed to Match and got a really bad hit rat on matched song, only 1/3rd of my tracks were matched, the others are now uploading (9500 of them).

    I've read lots of threads on this problem and there isn't a solution. Is there a way you can force it to re-scan for matches to see if it picks any more matches up?

    Turn it off and back on I believe it is under the store menu, but cant think of it off hand. To tell you the truth I feel pretty cheated as not only does the service not match some albums that are on iTS, the ones it does match are sometimes wrong either clean lyrics or instrumental.

    Its been out for a couple of months and it took forever for release and it really is poor. I feel cheated even at only 25 a year.

    I can't say that I've experienced the same results. I did initially, but then pulled down all my music and ran it through and checked and fixed countless tags. On upload again, out of almost 12k songs I have only around 200 that didn't match and many of them are justifiable. I'm not really thrilled with the near total lack of info from Apple on getting the best matches, it's certainly not a "it just works" like many of their other products.
