View Full Version : "EMPTY" when browsing

Nearly all my album tracks are unavailable... when I do Browse music>Browse
Artists>some artist>some album> all I see is EMPTY (Same thing with Browse
Albums)

I had to give up my old way of accessing files (Browse Music Folder) because
v6.0.0 has serious performance issues with this feature (I'd prefer to just
browse folder).

But maybe because I never really used browse music/browse artist (or browse
alums) I'm using them wrong.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Phillip

Is everyone that's having this problem on Windows and in a Daylight Savings timezone?

Thanks.

Dan asks this because we've identified an issue related to Daylight
Savings on Windows. It turns out that Windows reports a different file
modification date after the automatic change for Daylight Savings (see
http://www.codeproject.com/datetime/dstbugs.asp for more information).
This makes us think that the file has changed. A bug in 6.0.0 (fixed in
the latest nightlies) deletes the file from the database rather than
re-reading tags. If you are seeing this bug, updating to the latest
6.0.1 nightly
(http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads/nightly/latest/6.0.1/) will fix it.

Is this related to Bug 1239, which is currently irritating me? (The
symptoms seem similar, but 1239 sure looks like a charset issue.)

I forgot to mention - you will have to hit Rescan (under Server
Settings) to see the missing tracks again.
