    Has anyone else seen this? Tunesat has been behaving odd for about the last 3 weeks. My total number of detections is going up, but the date of my last detection is unchanged … so the “new” detections are being added for some dates in the past.

    In scanning my list of detections, I just can’t tell where in the past the adds are being made. I haven’t tried to do a track by track comparison, it’s just not worth it.

    One thing about Tunesat that I haven’t seen mentioned here is the free account not only limits you to 50 tracks, it also limits you to 50 detections per month. At least it did when I had a free account. A commercial could easily max out your free account in a week. That is one of the reason’s I started to pay for a subscription.

    Is it worth the $600 per year? I haven’t crunched the numbers in detail, but Tunesat found several film & advertising placements from RF sites that I would not have been aware of. These did not have cue sheets so I had to chase the money by filing claims and contacting production companies. Those licenses have brought in low-mid four figures that I likely would have missed out on if it wasn’t for Tunesat.

    Alan … Thanks, very interesting. I didn’t remember the limit on detections per month. And that’s great that the fee has paid off for you. I only have a few tracks in one RF library, and I think they do a good job of catching usage. But you don’t know what you don’t know.

    jdstamper,

    I don’t recall seeing the limit written down anywhere on the Tunesat site. I just began to notice a trend of detections stopping toward the end of the month then restarting on the first of the next month. As my number of placements grew I realized they were capped off at 50 per month. That’s when I began paying.

    I would guess their accuracy is about 70%. It becomes very obvious if you know you have 2 or 3 tracks in a single episode of a show and they normally miss some.

    For me, I estimate their accuracy at less than 50%, probably way less. So much of that depends on how what % of your placements fall into the regions, channels, programs, that Tunesat monitors.

    Alan … “It becomes very obvious if you know you have 2 or 3 tracks in a single episode of a show and they normally miss some” … Yes, I’ve seen things like this too.

    Jdstamper my Tunesat has been similar lately. I’m getting new detections for months where I was already maxed out with 50. In some other cases I only had to look back 5-10 detections to see what just showed up. It appears they are catching up though after the recent maintenance.

    I’ve used Tunesat for ages and yes it misses a bit bot overall it is great! I would say at this time BMAT is a bit better and picks up more. No fingerprinting or watermarking services pick up streaming because it is not broadcast. Streaming occurs individually one by one, stream by stream, on demand. As for free vs pay on Tunesat it is exactly the same service. The paid service is for more than 50 songs. I have a 1500 song service so I pay. That is the only difference. Hope helpful! ๐Ÿ™‚

    P.S. to RM90 the 50 song limit is for individual musical pieces not detections so you can thousands of detections as long as it is for the 50 songs.
