    First, just a bit of clarification (you may already know that): Tags can be displayed on the FILE BROWSER, on the PLAYLIST or on BOTH. The information I provided was meant to show tags on the FILE BROWSER (since you started by asking about browsing by artist, genre and so on). Once the song is loaded into the playlist, settings for the display of tags are independent from the display of tags on the file browser. The simplest thing for you to ensure tags are displayed in the PLAYLIST and FILE BROWSER is to turn everything on. This can be done by opening RRConfig, goiing into Music->Page 1 then selecting Use ID3 Tag: Mix V2 with V1, then CHECK Show ID3 Playlist and Show ID3 Browse -- then make sure .FLAC is an extension in the audio files box.

    Now, having the above settings in place, the only reasons why tags would show for MP3 and not for FLAC are:
    -Older version of RR (Not the case)
    -Bad/No Tags on the FLAC files

    Since you have a newer version of RR, and think your tags are correct, but they're still not showing, please PM me so you can send me a sample FLAC file for testing -- the last case I had of doing the same, the user had ID3 tags on FLAC filles (which should NOT be done) as well as he correct FLAC tags (Vorbis Comment format) -- I did end up adding support to RR to filter out this mess (but this fix hasn't been released yet -- it was added after the December release).

    Interesting that having ID3 and ogg tags would mess it up. I'll check that though I don't think it is the case. If my files look good I'll send you something. Thanks again.

    I have found that some of my flacs show tags and others don't. Its a mystery to me but it must be that some have mp3tags AND ogg tags. I used a program called mp3tag assistant. It seems to tell me that my problem flacs do not have any other tags but ogg. I am stumped. Anyone have a suggestion of a program that may help me sluth out this issue?
