    Rating not returned for one track


    I'm experiencing a weird behaviour of Slimserver with Material Skin.
    There is one track (or at least one track I'm aware of) which has a rating but this one isn't shown in the queue, on the now playing screen or when browsing.
    However when I look at the details (via (...)More), I see the rating.
    Please see a screenshot below.

    cpd73 wrote in the Material skin thread, that the skin gets the ratings from the server. So I checked the exchanged messages.
    When opening the album, I see the request to retrieve the track details of the album

    The response from the server however doesn't show the rating for the track in question but it contains the rating for the other track:

    I'm puzzled what's going on here. I tried to rescan the library a few times but without any effect.
    Any idea what is happening? Where should I look at and what to look for?
    Any tips are greatly appreciated.

    Looking at everything you posted I see that this is an .mp3 file. Is there a chance that this file has both id3v1 and id3v2.3 tags? I've seen multiple tag versions do strange things in LMS. I use mp3tag with this tag setting and you can select a file or a whole directory. Then click Edit - Cut <and tell it yes, do it> Then without changing your current selection click Edit - Paste <and of course the confirm>. With these tag settings you will now just have id3v2.3 tags.
