Muso call home?

Postby MDE » Mon Aug 13, 2018 5:13 pm

After having a few problems with Windows eating bandwidth on my metered connection, I starting monitoring usage by app. I see that Muso received 173MB so far today (18:00), but I don't recall using it (although its been open). Any ideas what it's doing (and how I can control it?).

It looks up internet resources on drilling down to an album or artist page, but you say you haven't even been using it? Has it been playing? How are you monitoring usage? Is that including local network traffic like playing from networked disk?

I was using Networx, which only monitors external traffic. However, it maybe that Networx was misattributing data to Muso as it now seems to be attributing that usage to a Windows service. (Windows is a big problem on a metered connection - last month it ate my monthly allowance in a few days via the ill-named “problem reporting service” even though I had set it as a metered connection - I had to hack the registry to fix it).
