    playlist format errors

    Take a look at the screen shot.
    It looks like RR has a problem with filenames that have an underscore in them, and ignores all the text before the underscore. I took a peek in RRConfig to see if there were any options related to underscores, but didnt see any. Is this a known issue?
    In the screen shot, you can see the folder in windows that has the actual files, the winamp playlist with those files loaded, and RR playlist.

    messing with some of the options in rrconfig (music settings), i saw "Titles After (character/text)" and there was an underscore as the value.
    After i changed it to dashes instead, RR now reads the whole file name instead of the last 2 characters, except all the underscores in the filename show up as spaces.
    Is there some way to make it show the underscrores, i prefer this to slashes or spaces or any other character.

    what is the "Titles After" feature anyway, what does it do?

    titlesafter cuts the filenames up to the "title" which is delimited by whatever text you enter there.. in your case was the "_".. if you use ID3, this feature is useless (unless you have files with no tags). Leave the setting blank and it will display the entire filename. RR will by default (hardcoded) replace underscores by spaces for title purposes -- but it will not replace them on any ID3 tags.
