    Set the titleafter setting above to nothing, that is your issue with the playlist its only grabbing the part after the "-" in the filename.

    i have all my music using tags, and i use medialists, so.. titlesafter isnt a factor
    its good for music that doesnt have tags, and you have a proper filename
    course having music with no tags, says to me, get tags!
    -Thanks

    No, all my music has tags. I've used Windows Media Player to rip all my CD's and it has populated all the tags. I then use MP3Tag to get a better cover art then the one that WMP gets, and I embed it in each song. Yes, deleting the "-" in the bottom field has allowed my playlists to appear properly (Artist - Album). So far, by checking the other two boxes, everything else is behaving. As I'm just setting up this new computer, I have not added any songs to the "Disk Changers" yet, but I'm sure I will. I've decided to remove my head unit completely. I had a Sony unit with a 10CD changer that played .mp3 files. With 10 .mp3 CD's loaded, I could drive quite a long time and not hear the same song twice. By adding the computer in the mix, now I can have ALL my music avaliable, not just what I burn to a CD. Also the changer is showing it's age, I don't think the laser is as strong as it once was, and the discs are degrading with age. From now on all I'll have to worry about is hard drive failures, and it's an Intel SSD.

    Thanks for showing the suggested settings in the "Tags and Formatting" menu.

    I stopped using the ID tags because a lot of my music, which was legally purchased , has bad ID tags, so I didn't want those showing up. I am in the process of taking my 500gb library and getting the proper ID3 tags (is musicbrainz the best for this, btw?). I will try your settings, Mitch and see if that works.

    FYI, I always use resume. This issue not only occurs on random startups, but also when playing a playlist and it skips around the songs. If I had to guess, I would say 1 out of every 10 songs has a blank title until I go to the audio_player skin, and then it loads. Not a deal breaker, but semi annoying.

    that's the thing...winamp isn't skipping the file. it plays the file fine, but doesn't load the title until I go to the audio player skin. I am using CODE: "TRACKNAME" for my label on the menu skin, and it randomly doesn't load on some songs, but as soon as I go to audio player skin, it shows up, and if I go back to the menu, it is now visible. Weird, huh?

    I have mp3tag but having trouble getting it to go out to the sources to pull track info. Which database should I be using?

    im sure you'll figure it out, im sure its not random

    im not sure what your asking in the track info in mp3tag, you have to provide some info about the mp3... it cant guess what it is

    also, if you have winamp set to provide tags, the "TRACKNAME" will come from WINAMP NOT RR

    my suggestion, is LET RR provide the TAGS

    its a setting in winamp...(prob posted this pict a few times) actually most people have it this way...

    oh and another FYI, for audio as active source, "TRACKNAME" is the same as "TAGTITLE"
    if you find that not to be the case, i would disable all plugins out side SKINTOOL
    and I HOPE YOU ARE TESTING with Skintool... good rule is dont trust any skin
