I'm having another issue with 6.0.1... when the SB2 switches to display Now
Playing it shows the wrong song title and says "no album" and "no artist".
Also, it's missing the track number which should be displaying because my
settings are for:
TRACKNUM, TITLE - ARTIST - ALBUM (YEAR)

The wrong track is the previous track..... that is, when on track 3 it shows
details for track 2.



Thanks,
Phillip

Hi
I'm not sure if this is the same problem so I'll describe the symptoms.
I sync one SB and one SB2. I them unsync the SB and the music stops
playing on the SB and continues on the SB2(normal so far). From there
on out the SB2 is one track behind on the now playing screen. I'm
running the 6.0.2 server, firmware current to that release. The SB is
wireless and the SB2 is wired. It was late last night so haven't tried
to replicate yet.
It seemed the only way to fix was to clear the playlist.
Thanks
Matt

My error isn't quite the same--but I do have more info.

As I'm playing songs, only every OTHER song shows the "no artist", "no
album". It's weird because it never shows the RIGHT track info...it's
always either the first or second track on the album. But, as it goes, it
will show a track (the wrong one) but with the right album and artist...
then the same track title--but "no album"/"no artist" then back to the first
display.

Also, it will display the now-playing animation wrong. That is, when it's
showing "no album"/"no artist" it also doesn't show the count-down progress
bar.. nor does it show the time remaining--which is my normal "screen
saver/now playing" display.

I'd appreciate comments on whether the current build is just so broken this
is a fact of life or what.

The version I'm running:
6.0.1 - 2781

Thanks,
Phillip
