  1. Try increasing the buffer size in Settings > Audio > Output > (your chosen output method). Andre
  2. What happens when you enable track number viewing within the title line text (Settings > Library > Lists > Show Track Number). Do the numbers show on there correctly but still in the wrong order, or are they in some way missing (indicating that metadata is not being full read during the scanning processes) and hence ordered incorrectly? There was an issue with tracks beyond 99 causing display issues when this feature was first introduced, but it should be fine by build 860. Andre
  3. Poweramp can play any linear streaming broadcast audio stations (e.g., radio stations, website audio streams, etc). It cannot stream subscription services like Amazon Music, Spotify, etc. Go to the top Library view in Poweramp and select 'Streams'. Then tap on the three-dots menu icon and choose 'Add URL' and enter the HTTP web link for the radio station you want - e.g. BBC Radio 2 in the UK would be http://bbcmedia.ic.llnwd.net/stream/bbcmedia_radio2_mf_p Some stations will even provide you with ready-made .M3U or .PLS playlist files that you just need to download and save in any location that Poweramp already scans for music. Andre
  4. So to clarify, any music saved on internal storage scans fine, with all metadata info displayed correctly in the PA Library lists. However the exact same files, in the same named folder structure, when placed on your SD Card do get scanned into the library but without any metadata (title, artist, album, etc) being shown in the lists. And this happens with all of your music, and a Full Rescan does not change the situation? Have you tried a full uninstall of PA and reinstalling (or a doing a 'Clear Data' in the Android app settings ought to do the same thing)? Andre
  5. Ah, sorry, I probably should have asked what build you were using. Glad it's sorted for you now anyway - and especially that the old bug has not re-appeared! Andre
  6. How did you buy it, website on on the Google Play Store? Are you using the same Google account / email address? Is it the same device or a new one? Andre
  7. Which of the above is the case, in one message you said internal storage worked but SD Card did not, but the other message says both failed. Have you added the new storage card location (Android will have given it a new name) to Settings > Library > Music Folders. You also said your folder and filenames have no special characters, but your earlier example screenshots showed lot of special characters, e.g: Andre
  8. The previous complaints were all dated some time ago, I thought the issue had been fixed in more recent builds. Andre
  9. A simple slider would definitely be a nice option. In a similar vein, I'd also like to see a tickbox to also check for user activity. That way you could set the timer to stop playback 10 minutes after the last user interaction took place (track control, volume changes, etc). That would be a more elegant way to allow for how long it takes you to fall asleep, with PA shutting down a set period after you're finished using any controls. Andre
  10. MP3Tag is very similar to TagScanner, but I don't know whether they both have the same extended functions beyond tag editing. Andre
  11. You do need to get into the PA menu somehow to check the settings (and to enable the separate menu icon for future use). Android KitKat and lower devices almost always had proper hardware menu/home/back buttons, but car headunits sometimes seem to be a separate case, they use older versions of Android but without properly supporting the necessary controls. Have you checked with the support dept for the headunit to see how you are meant to use Home/Back/etc? Andre
  12. I thought this one had gone away long ago as no one has mentioned it recently. And this only happens when you try to modify the M3U8 list within Poweramp, until then it's fine? Andre
  13. That sounds like an Android notification trying to interrupt, is that a possibility? Andre
  14. If you formatted the card, PA would have had to rescan everything anyway as Android would have presented it as new storage. Does this problem occur with every track, or just some (specific ones, or randomly?). The sample you uploaded was regular ASCII in both the filename and tag contents, were the folder names too? Andre
  15. Both files seem fine to me and are identical. With both placed on my SD Card while PA is not running, when I run PA the tags are all read correctly and show up in Recently Added category too. Andre
  16. The problem in your case (as with that other thread) seems to be that button ACTION_DOWN events are being created by the Bluetooth device with no corresponding ACTION_UP afterwards to say that the button has been released again. PA thus assumes that the button is being kept held down by the user (as it hasn't been informed otherwise) which means continue to Fast-Forward. Have you been able to find out why the BT device is doing this? Andre
  17. Just noticed this from another thread link. The problem in the above case seems to be that button ACTION_DOWN events are being created by the BT device with no corresponding ACTION_UP to say that the button has been released again, so PA must be assuming that the button is being kept held down by the user as it hasn't been informed otherwise, which means Fast-Forward. Andre
  18. Ah, I see. No, I'd definitely suggest making the album names reflect the real tiles (e.g. "Lost Season 1", "Game of Thrones Season 1", etc). That's what I do anyway; duplicating Album Titles unnecessarily is asking for trouble at some point. Andre
  19. There is an option to permanently enable the hamburger icon in v2, needed as some devices report that they have a physical Menu button when they don't. Usually there's a workaround trick on most devices that lets you get into the menu just one time in order to set the mode (such as long-pressing on the Home or Back buttons, may need a bit of trial and error to find how on your device). I'll move this thread over to the v2 topic as it's not related to the current product. Andre
  20. Then yes, it's probably that at some point the album name was picked up from the Game of Thrones match (not sure why a Lost OST and a GoT OST would ever have the same album title wording though?). The best way to differentiate different albums which happen to have the same title is to use the Album Artist tag (just using the Artist tag alone may not help, because collection / Various Artists albums need to have their tracks grouped together). I do agree that the running time metadata being missing from the Albums level when you've drilled down from the Artist or Albums by Artist categories is probably an oversight that needs to be fixed though (as it works in all levels of other drill-down categories, such as Folders Hierarchy).One for @maxmp to look at I think. Andre
  21. That's an album (of other category) header, not an individual track's results. Albums do not have metadata per se, it's interpreted from all the tracks which are tagged to say they are part of that album. Think of a compilation album where each track was released in a different year, it has to pick one. Do any of the other tracks in that same album have a date of 2011? For your other question, Settings > Library > Lists > Headers with Meta. However you do seem to have that enabled anyway (otherwise the line with the year would not be shown). What Library Category are you using, I see the total running time in that line in Folders, Albums, Artists, and some other views - but oddly not when you drill down from Artist's name to one of their Albums, which I agree it probably should. Andre
  22. That Lost track shows as 2006 for me in TagScanner on my PC and also in Poweramp. What are you seeing? Andre
  23. You could adjust the ticked folder names in Settings > Library > Music Folders, so that certain locations are omitted from Poweramp's scanning process and thus won't appear in the library database or any category views even if the physical files are still retained on the device. Note: for any song to appear within a Playlist though, it must necessarily exist in the library database first, so any songs you remove from PA in this way will also vanish from playlists. Andre
  24. If the year is the only tag that is being read incorrectly, and the others are OK, I would suspect the embedded tagging data within the file has some sort of issue. Could you provide a sample file? Andre
  25. It all sounds like either problems with the embedded tags (can you upload some samples?) or PA is still being allowed to scan while the files are only half-copied (which will find the name, but not the tag data). A Full Rescan should solve the latter problem, but obviously not if it's something odd in the tags. Andre
