  1. What you would want to do is sort the tracks in alphabetical order; all the ones with digits will be at the top of the list. Remove one character from the tracks with digits, then resort. Then remove one character from the remaining tracks with digits.
  2. Are these tracks in iTunes? If so, this AppleScript will do what you want: https://dougscripts.com/itunes/2012/09/updated-remove-n-characters-from-front-or-back-v4-6/
  3. I agree about For You. It's as you describe: I've currently got give new releases on mine, the four album bricks are sometimes useful, but often recommend music that I really don't like, and I never listen to the "Mixes" at the top of the window or any of the recommended playlists. To be fair, I'm not really using Apple Music to find new music; it's more to play music I already know, and to go back and listen to discography of artists I know but whose music I don't own.
  4. I don't see any such option in the moderator actions at the top of the page.
  5. The moderator options don't let me change the name of the thread. Chris @The Computer Audiophile, is this something you can do?
  6. You sign in on the Apple TV in the settings, and if you're not yet signed in, that's where you need to go. Perhaps the Apple TV interface isn't working ideally, if you're saying it's asking for a password when you make a purchase, but you should not have to sign in more than once _unless_ you've set the password time requirement. When I set up a new Apple TV a couple of months ago, I signed in once in the settings, and haven't had to sign in again.
  7. Apple has clear instructions as to how to do this: What if I use two-factor authentication on a device running older software? If you use two-factor authentication with devices running older OS versions—like an Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation)—you might be asked to add your six-digit verification code to the end of your password when signing in. Get your verification code from a trusted device running iOS 9 and later or OS X El Capitan and later, or have it sent to your trusted phone number. Then type your password followed by the six-digit verification code directly into the password field. https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT204915
  8. What do you consider "a proper macOS for the pros?"
  9. 32-bit software runs on Mojave, but it won't run on the next version of macOS.
  10. How do you install from an SD card? The macOS installer cannot boot itself. Do you mean that you launch the installer when booted from the computer, by selecting it on the SD card? If so, you don't have any options to erase the drive at that time. All that happens is that macOS copies the installer to the drive to be able to install the OS. What you need to do is boot off an external drive with a full operating system and installer on it. Before installing, you run Disk Utility and reformat the drive. As for Disk Utility, it has _never_, as far as I remember, said "HFS" or "HFS+." It says macOS Extended, etc.
  11. You've always had to select a drive to format; you can erase a volume, but you can't format a volume. It's true that the button says Erase, but for volumes it just erases, and for drives it formats.
  12. Let me see if I understand this. Some company called "Graphisoft" recommends an older than current operating system, but Apple is shite? What is the "10.13 SD card?" Where did you get this from? Booting from an SD card is certainly not recommended with macOS. If you want to install an older operating system, you'll need to have an OS on an external drive, boot to it by holding the Option key at startup, erase the startup volume on the Mac, then install the OS. I have an SSD in an enclosure which I use to back up my iMac. I just plugged it in, and Disk Utility offers me the option of erasing it as macOS Extended (Journaled) which is what you want. There's no way that you don't have that option unless there's something wrong with the drive in the Mac. And given the errors you're seeing, I suspect there is a hardware issue with the drive.
  13. Or use Apple Lossless and save about half your disk space...
  14. Yes, as long as you do the conversion in iTunes, you'll keep the metadata. I'd create a playlist of a few hundred tracks, convert them, check that everything is there, then delete the WAV files and continue until finished. I wouldn't try to do them all at once.
