    I think i know why, basically, RR doesn't set itself to a source if you don't go to a source screen first, hence why it works when you go to the old school browser, it knows and sets its source to Audio(mp3) and then the TAGxxx and album art work accordingly. And is fixable via the skin.
    Ok, I actually decided to fix the issue the correct way, in the actual RRMedia PI. It will now set the source to audio if it is now audio after loading the disk. See bottom of Post #2.

    For US users, should we move to RR Fuel Prices or stick with RRGAS?

    So now we just need the cover art browser fixed in the skin itself correct?

    EDIT: I have downloaded your RR Media DB fix and it works great.

    RRFuel prices has replaced RRGas, as far as I know. I will let Enforcer jump in here and answer that one....

    Yes, but you can only have one single "App Area" defined at a time, in any skin. So find the line in the menu.skin (as well as in menu's 2,3 & 4) and find This line:
    Z,14,7,772,121

    Replace it with this line:
    Z,246,165,305,274

    This simply moves the visual from the top, to the center. You can move it where ever you want really. How it is defined breaks down like this:

    Z,Distance From Left,Distance From Top, Width, Height

    I just tested it here, and it will work on top of any of the menu options, weather, photo, 2D, 3D logo ect...

    As per the FAQ's in the FuelPrices thread

    A.
    At present the RRGas plugin works fine, however it will no longer be updated so any changes to the source website will break it. However this plugin will be continually updated and because of the way it is set up it should automatically update if I have needed to change the code because of a website change.
    Other considerations though;

    In RRFuelPrices all the settings are now done within RR itself, so no editing of ini files is required.

    There are a couple more navigation program options (used to navigate to a fuel station of your choice) in RRFuelPrices that aren't in RRGas. So if you use Sygic or iGo8 as you navigation program RRFuelPrices will be better for you.

    As you have posted in the DFX thread I assume you are using DFX5. Now I am not sure if DFX now comes with RRGas skin files or RRFuelPrices files or both, maybe John can answer that one.

    Currently DFX 5.1 still comes with RRGas skin files and a preset button for it. I dl'ed RRFP and installed it but stopped short of manually setting up a button for it. I raised the question because the RRFP skin was done before 5.1 was released and I didn't want to break something that was already working.

    To be honest I'm chasing several issues in my carpc right now so causing another problem just wasn't high on the list. If it's supposed to work okay then I will go for it.
