Is there any way to eliminate the breaks with that odd generic music? Sorry, I'm totally new to this. :)

You need filler tracks, of your choosing, to fill the ad breaks when no commercials are scheduled.

Here's a link to the start of the official Filler Instructions.

I did make and upload a filler, but it's not being used.
Ideally I'd like to have no breaks from the music at all...There's no point, especially since I don't have ads yet.

You will need more than one filler track; 4 to 6 is probably a minimum. (I have 21.) Fillers, like all music tracks, must comply with their box restraints.

Be sure you have created the filler box on the Planner/Audio page and put the name of that filler box in the Planner/Planning right column under "Filler Box".

You may not have commercials now but when you get an average 13 hours/day listener hours you will suddenly get them.

So there's no way of turning that off? Darn. Well, thank you.

No you can't turn them off.
Every station on RN has two minutes of ads twice an hour.

Hmm...Well I've added five more filler tracks but it's still using that generic music. Is there no way of getting rid of that either?

Make certain that the filler tracks are exactly 2 minutes in length. Even 1:59 or 2:01 may not be used by the system and will not automatically truncate; they just won't play at all. Make certain that the names of the artists and the titles are different. If I have a recognizable track, for instance, if I had a two minute edit of Linkin Park's "Breaking the Habit", I'd call it (artist) Linkin Park, (track) Breaking The Habit [Filler]. Make sure the constraints are set that they don't break the rules... i.e. set to 60 in both fields. Make sure there's enough of them (at least five). Make certain you are uploading them into a Filler Box and then in your Planning Screen on the lower right, under Filler Box, specify the box you uploaded the tracks into. Make certain your schedule is regenerated after making all these changes.

The thing is, it was exactly two minutes in the mixing program, but on the site it reads as slightly under. Not sure what to do about that...
