    TRACKNAME doesn't appear unless loaded in Audio_player.skin first

    This problem seems random and I cannot always repeat it. I have a label using "TRACKNAME" on my main overview skin (menu.skin) and when RR launches and starts playing a song, the trackname will not appear in this label until I go over to my audio_player.skin. Then if I go back to my menu.skin, its there and usually continues to work OK. I've even played with adding audio_player.skin under the "preloaded" and "keep loaded" in RRconfig, but it doesn't help.

    and btw, if you start RR, and there is NO active source to resume to, it wont show anything...

    course if you ask me, you should always resume...

    rr.ini

    resumemusic=1

    at the very least

    but if there is nothing to resume to, ie no resume.ini, rr will start idle with NO source active... thus there cant be any trackname!

    I'm having something similar to the above problems.
    Windows 7 64Bit SP1
    RR 2/5/2012, DFX 5.1.1
    I use Winamp 5.623, ID3V2, my files are named: (Album is AC/DC, Back In Black, Folder structure is D:\Music\AC-DC\Back In Black)

    01 Hells Bells.mp3
    02 Shoot To Thrill.mp3
    03 What Do You Do for Money Honey.mp3
    04 Givin the Dog a Bone.mp3
    05 Let Me Put My Love into You.mp3
    06 Back in Black.mp3
    07 You Shook Me All Night Long.mp3
    08 Have a Drink on Me.mp3
    09 Shake a Leg.mp3
    10 Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution.mp3

    It seems that the on the audio_player.skin the info for the Artist, Album, Song, Year, and Genre Does not load until I get to track 09 Shake a Leg, and even then, only the Song Field loads, and it says the complete filename (09 Shake a Leg), none of the other fields populate. If I use the Skintool 2.1.5 and try to get info such as "TAGTITLE", the track 01-08 show "< Contains No Data >". When I get to track 09, then "TAGTITLE" will be populated with "09 Shake a Leg". Pressing "NEXT" goes to "10 Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution". The view when I press the "Playlists" button shows all the tracks in the proper order, exactly as in the structure above, except for the .mp3 is not on the end.

    This behavior is consistent for almost every playlist I load. There is one folder (80's) that does not have numbered tracks, the songs are in alphabetical order. On that playlist the first 8 songs show nothing, song 9 shows just the title, song 10 and up show the full gamut, Artist, Album, Song, Year, and Genre.

    Anybody got any ideas?

    well, i think you issue was fixed a month ago...
    but maybe i dont know what your issue is

    TEST with carwings!

    rr will only fetch tags it needs, when it needs them, ie the item is visable

    Yeah, it should be the most updated, I just downloaded everything (RR, DFX, Winamp), last saturday. I'll try it in Carwings, of course. I did plug in my HDRadio yesterday with your cable and drivers...it worked AWESOME.

    It's just that the behavior is so radically different in whether it has track numbers stored in the file name or not, but not showing any data until I get the the 9th track in the playlist...weird. I'll try Carwings either tonight or tomorrow.

    Thanks Mitch, you're my hero....

    OK, if I set it to exactly your settings, it works perfectly. If I deviate at all from your suggested settings, it starts to act up. The only thing I don't care for when I use your settings is that in the playlist browser, it only shows me the name of the album. I have my playlists done by albums. So my playlist "Aerosmith - Just Push Play.3mu", instead of seeing "Aerosmith - Just Push Play", All I see is "Just Push Play". If I remove the "-", then the playlists look how I want, and so far things look to be behaving. So really the only change I made was to check the "Show ID3 Playlist" and "Show ID3 Browse", it appears to be behaving now.
