Care to elaborate on this? This piece of 'advice' is useless and pointless without an explanation
In my personal opinion Tunecore do things a bit strangely - they don't use the same recording codes that everyone else uses and instead use their own proprietrary Tunecodes. This isn't a problem if Tunecore is your only outlet and you aren't expecting your music to be played anywhere else but could be a problem with broadcast material.
Personally I've gone with CD-Baby as a digital aggregator and Sentric Music to handle royalties but there are plenty of other alternatives.
