  1. Thanks, this did the trick, this saves me from the full re-scans.
  2. Look's like the same problem is being discussed in
  3. @maxmp thanks for the proposal to disable automatic scan, I believe that will solve my problem for now and I can then just do manual scans after upload has completed. I assume you are using something like inotify for getting notifications to PA about new files in the library and this triggers a scan of the new object? If this is correct, wouldn't it be possible to put in a simple check in the scan to see if the file is open by another process and if so delay the scan? How about changing the "rescan" behavior launched in a folder in such a way that it does a full rescan of the objects in the directory?
  4. It's not a tagging issue or problem with the file. The issue is with files copied to a SD card not being properly picked up at the time of copy, the way to fix it is to either run a full rescan or rename the directory on the SD card. If the same file is copied to the internal storage, then it's properly picked up. My guess is that PA scans the file before it's completely copied to the card, and during this first scan the meta data isn't in place
  5. I have a similar issue where correctly taged MP3 songs ends up as unknown in PA when initially copied to the phone. I have found two ways to resolve the problem: Rename the directory on the phone that holds the problematic tracks, this causes PA to re-scan the tracks. Do a FULL rescan of the library. I would recommend you to try a FULL rescan of your library, go to settings and at the bottom of Library settings page there you have the full rescan.
  6. PA see's the new files, plays them happily but without tags. A simple rename of the file or directory on the device makes PA re-scan the files and then the tags are picked up and I can rename back the directory to the initial name. It doesn't matter how the file is created on the SD-card, always the same result. New files/directories synchronized to device with "FolderSync pro". Files copied from NAS -> phone with "ES File Manager" Files copied from "SD card folder "-> "another SD card folder" with "ES File Manager" or the built in file manager. A normal re-scan will not read the tags, and a full re-scan feels a bit excessive.
  7. @maxmp is there anything that you could do about this problem?
  8. Or just display the generic PA icon for the playlists, I really hate the "random" first track of the list approach. Please either make it selectable or default to a generic icon.
  9. @djdarko My 828 has a white NavBar, just like your 829 screen shot.
  10. Try to login with email address instead of login name or vice versa, that worked for me.
  11. Please confirm that you are doing a "full rescan" and not just a rescan. The full rescan is triggered from the bottom of the library settings page. Kim
  12. I know, it's just exiting the user interface, but there is something in the logic of PA that causes me to back out of it way to often, and then I have to either dig it out from recently used apps or move to the home screen where I have the widget to get into the UI again... I don't know why I keep on doing it, but it's killing me. I must admit that I haven't earlier noted that back is not back, as I'm used to hit the mini player to get back to the main player screen. It's probably better for people like me (musik organized in a Artist/Album hierarchy and basically always using Folder Hierarchy mode) that back acts as up instead of back. Workflow for switching to another album: Tap album cover to get to folder list Back once or twice, depending on if I want to just switch album or artist Enter new folder to be played Tap the first track which starts the track and takes me back to the main screen With this workflow it would be very irritating that back would be back as then I would just be switching between player screen and current category and would have to start using up button in the library. We had a discussion a while ago about having "play" in the pop up context menus, in my workflow it's more intitutive to long press the folder and hit play, instead of entering it and then click on the first item to play it, now I'm used to entering the folder but I do still miss the play button. This made me aware of the fact that people use tools in different ways, depending on how you select what to listen to, size of library, library organization etc. Kim
  13. This is also number one on my wish list, I really hate "being thrown" out of the app by hitting back one time to much! I'm standing on my knees beging for the option to disable the exit... it would really be an early Christmas gift for me to get this implemented... I wonder what it would take to bribe Max to add this? Kim
