Frank D Posted January 11 Share Posted January 11 Hi all, New to Poweramp - just picked it up to replace the forever buggy default app on my Fiio M11 player. I'm generally enjoying the app when it works properly, but have a few odd issues to report that almost render it unusable for me. Did a bit of searching and coming up empty on specific solves (probably not searching the write terminology), so any help would be deeply appreciated in advance! I have two 1TB SD cards in good health, with 210,000 songs or so across the both of them. All MP3s, all tagged well, in good shape to my knowledge. Here are the issues I'm having: Issue #1 - Navigating through the Library is very slow/buggy for me. Often, the app hangs when attempting to jump around to Artists or All Songs, for minutes on end. Often, the only fix is to force close the app, re-open it, walk away for a few minutes, and then come back, and it'll work until I close it or add some music and rescan, and then it's back to this lag for a bit. I did just turn off auto-scan for now, which should help in theory, but it STILL took five minutes or so before I was able to navigate or play music, and even now, it lags a bit when trying to check out my most played, recently added, or top rated tracks. Is this due to the size of the library and I just have to do my time and wait? Or is there something else afoot? Issue #2 - Even though my files have the correct album artwork attached in the metadata, the scan pulls up different artwork from time to time for the folders, which is weird. While I am easily able to change the artist photo via the scraper and it sets, re-setting the album folder artwork doesn't take, even if I select the correct artwork. It lets me choose the proper artwork as expected, but once selecting it, the folder cover stays the same.. I'm attaching three pics of the process - the wrong cover in the artist view first, the wrong cover showing while the correct cover shows in the metadata second, and then the correct option when trying to select the cover third. Once selecting the correct cover (I chose the first option in the upper right, though have tried all of them), it does not save, for some reason. Issue #2 is really not a dealbreaker but does irk my OCD aesthetic sensibilities, but the first one is a bummer so far. Thanks for the help, hope to solve these things soon!
