    Volume adjustment issue

    Have you tried turning off or turning on Direct Volume Control (DVC)? Settings -> Audio -> Advanced Tweaks

    Album Cover Art Issue

    I too have separate cover art. One Folder.jpg for each album in the same folder as the album songs. My file structure is "<music root>/<artist>/<album>/<songs>" with the cover art in the same folder as the songs. My cover art always shows correctly. I have 1,600+ albums on a 256GB MicroSD card in my phone. Moto X4 - Android Pie - PA V3 -build 816.

    Album Cover Art Issue

    Some questions... Is your album art embedded in the music files or is it a separate file in the album folder like "Folder.jpg"? What version is "latest version"? What device and model (phone)? What version of android?
  4. +1 - A great request!

    Queue Issues

    PA 816 - Moto X4 - Android Pie I'm a big user of the Queue. I like to queue up multiple albums for thing like mowing the lawn, exercise, rod trips, etc. This has been happening since the alpha releases, but it doesn't happen all the time. I usually Enqueue my desired items and then either plug in the headphones or get in the car (Bluetooth). Settings are "Resume on Bluetooth" = on and "Resume on wired Headset" = off. This happens both on headset and Bluetooth and if I call up the queue before I connect to anything. What happens is the queue will show that the queue is positioned on a song other than the first song of the first album. The music is stopped. I cannot reproduce consistently, but it happens enough that I've decided it's worth this write-up.

    How to properly use TPE tags

    I use DBPoweramp to RIP as it's a little more flexible than EAC, both use "Accurate RIP" data base, but DBPoweramp isn't free. DBPoweramp uses TPE1 as track artist and TPE2 as album artist. so in compilation albums I use "Various" as the Album Artist (TPE2) and the performer of each track in the Artist (TPE1) tag. For regular albums and greatest hits albums I set TPE1 = TPE2. For multiple artists I would stick with ";" or "//", wouldn't want "AC/DC" to show as two artists. This approach gives me what I want for both my phone (Poweramp) and my home stereo where I use Logitech Media Server (LMS) to send music from my server PC to the stereo(s). As an aside it sure would be nice if Poweramp showed TPE1 or gave an option of using TPE1 for track listings when accessing music through the Album Artist library method.

    Sort Option - Artist/Album/Track No.

    Go into Lists and change the sort method to Track #.

    Hiding unknown artist

    Multiple Genres are still supported in v3. I use a semi-colon ";" for this. I have single Genres like "Folk/Rock", "Pop/Rock" that were being split like you say in v2. I believe that it's pretty standard to use a semi-colon to split multiple Genres in ID3v2.3 tags. I've also seen a double back slash "\\" used in APE tags as a separator for multiple Genres.

    Library -> Albums List

    816 - Moto X4 - Android Pie I'd like to see the scroll bar on the right side of the screen replaced with the alphabet list like is used in the "Album Artist" list. With the Album list sorted by Album Artist tag it would be great to be able to click "V" to get to Various artists instantly without having to drag the scroll bar. Since it doesn't seem like we will get the track listings to use the track artist tag in the Album Artist view, this would give the direct access to any Album Artist in the Album list and also have the track Artist properly displayed when drilling into a Various artist compilation album.

    If the Album Artist view of a selected compilation album honored the "Album Artist Label..." settings in Library -> Lists it would look like this.

    Please have the Album Artist view of a selected album honor the "Album Artist Label..." settings in Library -> Lists. Just for grins name the track artists for these displayed tracks off the top of your head.

    Actually I think this could be implemented simply by honoring "Album Artist Label for Tracks" setting when going into your library using "Album Artist". This would present Albums by "Album Artist", but when a given album is drilled into the tracks would display the "Artist" tag for the individual tracks. This would also show the track "Artist" in the now playing main and now playing song list.

    Settings -> Library -> Lists -> Delete Action. You need to enable it. This has been answered elsewhere too.
