Rolling the mouse over the FAQ displays the answer.
1.    How many songs can the JukeTime™ system store?How many songs can the JukeTime™ system store?JukeTime™ can catalog about 6500 CDs (depending  on available disk space).
2.    How can I change one of the Internet Radio pre-sets in JukeTime-JBIR?How can I change one of the Internet Radio pre-sets in JukeTime-JBIR?JukeTime-JBIR does not support editing of the Internet Radio station pre-set data.  This capability is only contained in the JukeTime-PC-PRO product.  The ‘NRPresets.JMR’ file can be edited by following the instructions contained in the JukeTime-PC Users Manual.

4.    How large a disk drive should I have?How large a disk drive should I have?JukeTime™ can store about 220 songs per gigabyte of disk space (compressed format [MP3 / OGG / WMA /… ] only, WAV format averages about 25 songs per gigabyte).   A 200GB disk will hold about  40,000 songs (at 12 to 15 songs per CD, that translates to over 3,000 CDs).  That should provide sufficient space for most personal music collections.  However, the larger the disk the more music you can store.
5.    What is the quality of the music extracted by JukeTime™?What is the quality of the music extracted by JukeTime™?Audio quality was a prime design constraint in the development of the JukeTime™ suite.  A bit sample rate of 320kbps was chosen to best balance the quality of the music against the final file sizes of the resulting output files (WAV, MP3, WMA, OGG, etc.).
6.    If I select the same song from different albums only one plays.  Why?If I select the same song from different albums only one plays.  Why?All music added to the player queue is first filtered by ‘Artist’ and ‘Song Title’.  Duplicates (based on those two attributes) are excluded.
7.    Why can I only queue up 360 songs?Why can I only queue up 360 songs?A group of 360 songs translates to about 24 hours of music.  Player queue size was restricted to that quantity of music to reduce memory usage and improve performance.  This limit can be adjusted using the JukeTime-PC configuration / maintenance function.
8.    Can I add the JukeTime™ system to my jukebox without replacing the current hardware?Can I add the JukeTime™ system to my jukebox without replacing the current hardware?Yes.  The only limitation is space.  You will need sufficient room to install the internal computer and the touch screen monitor.
9.    Can I continue to use the old amplifier and lights?Can I continue to use the old amplifier and lights?Yes.  This is the perferred method (especially if you have bubblers).  It keeps the original look of the jukebox and reduces the conversion cost.
10.    What is required to register my digital jukebox and how do I handle music royalties?What is required to register my digital jukebox and how do I handle music royalties?Refer to the ‘Music’ web page for information and site links for handling jukebox registration and music royalties.
11.    What music formats can the JukeTime™ products play and / or convert?What music formats can the JukeTime™ products play and / or convert?JukeTime™ supports the playing and conversion of MP1, MP2, MP3, OGG, WAV, AIF, AAC, M4A, MP4, FLAC, FLA, OGA, WMA, APE, MAC, MIDI, MID, RMI, KAR, TTA, and JTX music file formats.
12.    Does JT-Reboot (JT-RBT) and JT-Reboot-PRO (JT-RBT-PRO) allow exclusion of rebooting when certain applications are running?Does JT-Reboot (JT-RBT) and JT-Reboot-PRO (JT-RBT-PRO) allow exclusion of rebooting when certain applications are running?Yes.  Both JT-RBT and JT-RBT-PRO monitors the system time, up time, running processes and CPU usage.  It only restarts the computer if all of the defined conditions are met.  Active processes are matched against the exclusion list (defined by the configuration form) as part of this validation.  JT-RBT and JT-RBT-PRO will suspend recycles if any of the defined exclusion processes are active.
13.    What's the difference in functionality between JT-RBT and JT-RBT-PRO?What's the difference in functionality between JT-RBT and JT-RBT-PRO?The basic version (JT-RBT) provides reboot capability whenever a user is logged on to the computer.  JT-RBT-PRO enhances that functionality but providing restart capability even when no users are logged on to the computer.  The PRO version works well in a commercial environment where users are required to log off when they leave for the day.
14.    Can the commercial and residential jukebox interfaces be customized to play only one genre (Country, Rock & Roll, Jazz, etc.)?Can the commercial and residential jukebox interfaces be customized to play only one genre (Country, Rock & Roll, Jazz, etc.)?Yes, Multi-genre support was added with version 2.7.  Each jukebox can be customized to support a specific environment, (country and western bar, oldies diner, family game room, etc.).
15.    How long does it take to convert a jukebox or build the JT-Mini?How long does it take to convert a jukebox or build the JT-Mini?As you might expect each make and model will require a different amount of time.  See the ‘Projects’ section for conversion and building examples.

The AMI-B had a perfect place for the touch screen, so converting it was fairly quick.  The ROCK-OLA 747 conversion took a little longer, but it was still completed in a couple of weeks.

The new JT-Mini took the most amount of time because the cabinet had to be fabricated from scratch.  Completing the layout, building the mockups and constructing the frame required a little more design effort, but the jukebox was up and running in about three weeks.

All the conversion and building activities were done on a part time basis (a few evenings a week plus a few hours on the weekends).
