Hi

As a side-effect of initiating the previous thread
on "Apple Lossless - Bitrate Indication",
I have just, for the first time, looked at the bitrate indication
for the Now Playing track on the player display.

Taking a random ALC track: in a static context
(i.e. just browsing tracks on the server or player)
the bitrate is indicated as 869kbps.

When I start the track playing and view the info via Now Playing
on the player's display I see
"Bitrate: 869kbps CBR (Converted to 869kb" ...
.... the display of "(Converted to 869kb" is surely a bug ...?

Regards

Mike

that it is. that should only be displayed if LAME gets involved.
