    Strange Characters When Displaying Songs

    EDIT: ADDED PICTURES





    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    When I view my music playlist in Road Runner, the default setup is
    %artist% - %title% and that works fine. But before each artist are three strange symbols. These symbols are also before the title of the song as well. Most of my songs have these symbols in the playlist, but not all of them do which is strange.

    If I run WinAMP and view the playlist editor, the symbols are nowhere to be found and everything displays correctly. But when I go back to RR the symbols pop up on most of the songs.

    I've tried playing with the Music Options in RRConfig, but nothing seems to fix it. The best I can tell, something is going on with the ID3V2 reading. All of my songs only have ID3V2 and no ID3V1 and if I view the the tags in WinAmp, everything looks perfect.

    The only time these symbols are not there is when I ran RRConfig and unchecked those two options about formatting names using %artist% - %title%. When I went back into RR, the playlist only displayed the titles of the songs and not the artist. But, there were no symbols. My personal preference is to display artist and title so I'm really trying to fix this.

    Thanks for any help you can offer. I'm typing this from work so I apologize if this post is all over the place. I will try to get screenshots later on if that helps.

    -Matt

    P.S. I'm using RR with the latest updated binaries and WinAmp 2.95.
