    Follow-up to this issue: I fired up again LMS on my old Raspberry Pi 3B+ and noticed that there has always been this issue. It's the same as on the Pi 4 with artist photos. So the beta max2play image for the Raspberry Pi 4 ist not to blame.

    I would be suprised, if a corrupted artwork db was the underlying issue, as the installations on the Pi 4 is absolutely fresh...

    How slow is it?
    The artwork handling is never as fast for artist images as for albums because for artist images iPeng first has to do a lookup request with the server to get the artwork URL while with album images it can request it directly.

    But after the first load it should be significantly faster and once the app is running and has requested to URLs once it should be similar.
    I should probably write the artwork URLs to the on-device cache as well to get rid of this additional lag.

    Material doesn't have the issue since it uses server-created menus that already get an artwork URL from the plugin.

    Very slow. I gave it a test run with iPeng's always active mode. After 3 hours only half of my artists showed the artist photo (600 auf approx 1200. artists).

    Furthermore I noticed that the artist photos that were already downloaded by iPeng were probably not cached. At the next opening of the app they were gone again...

    Anyway, it's not a critical issue, I can easily live without the artist photos. But it's something to be taken care of once there is some time left... Anyway thank you for this great app!

    Hm, but thatís definitely not normal.
    Did you try to clear the artwork cache?
    IĎm not exactly sure how that works on max2play but I think they have a menu for it.
    Itís in an artwork.db database that sometimes gets corrupted

    A full clear and rescan doesnít do the trick?

    No, if the database is really broken it doesnít.
    Thereís a thread about artwork caches here somewhere.

    Alarm clock

    Hi Pippin

    Iíve just upgraded to iOS 13.1.

    I canít add new alarms, or adjust the time of existing alarms, via iPeng because the time selection screen is blank. This happens on both iPhone and iPad.

    The touch controls are still active, and I can feel the vibrating feedback as I spin the dials, but I canít see what Iím doing.

    Duh. Thanks for letting me know, that one had slipped me.
    Please use light skin (in iPeng), it seems to be an issue related to the skin you use.

    Another issue with dark mode is, that text entered in search field is black, alas virtually unreadable.
