    UE Smart Radio - Radio Station Cover art not showing

    Hello,

    i am trying the UE Smart Radio firmeware now, and i have the problem hat the cover art from my radio stations are not changing. Is is most time the first radio station showing i used since powerup. When i change the station the cover does not change with the six Channel Buttons. I have to go to the main menu, bootmarks and select a new station, and then - sometimes - the cover art changes. I use mostly tuneIn Radio plugin to listen to radio.

    How can i fix this problem to see the cover art / to fix this? Any ideas?

    How long have you been running the UE firmware? I've rolled out new code
    earlier today. But the artwork handling code hasn't been updated in more
    than four years... today's changes were mostly removal of defunct services.

    Make it a SB again :-). No kidding. UESR is far behind SB when it comes
    to software maintenance. As its user number is really low in comparison
    I mostly fix security issues, not much else.

    If you are using a UE radio in UE mode (not SB mode) then there is almost nothing that you can easily do to change something ... unless you can find a different URL for the radio station stream that happens to work better for you.

    If you use it in conjunction with a local LMS then it /might/ be possible to do something in LMS to make the covers appear by changing the code or using producing a plugin.

    It would help to know precisely which radio station(s) exhibit this problem for you so that others can research further.

    OK, you won ;-)
    After trying UE Smart Radio for some days i will go back to "normal" firmware.
    Too much things that i do not like.

    The only thing i do not like in the normal firmware is that i do not see / have my tunein favourites, they are missing.
    But for that i will open a new thread:

    This isn't a competition. Only the suggestion of the experienced ;-)
