^ Thanks, Chris. Here is my mediaplayer.set:

artisit_view_album_sort;title
tag_data_library;0
dis_res_library;1
setting_playlist_jump_to;1
setting_album_tag_to_use;albumartist
cover_art_priority_one;folder
cover_art_priority_two;cover
cover_art_priority_three;front
media_player_marquee_title;0
check_database_dif;0
crossfade;0
enable_bryston_api;1
merge_similar_genres;0
bryston_db_disable;1
just_added;0
invert_interface;0
altSort;2
altJump;2
bryston_db_cover_disable;0
bryston_msg_mp_enable;0
enable_bryston_api;1
artist_view_artist_list_menu;1
bryston_db_auto_fill;0

...and here is an image showing the entire contents of the USER folder:


The only change I've made was to add some *.m3U playlists and I've added the last line to mpdplayback.set:

repeat;0
random;0
single;0
consume;0
buffer_before_play;15%

...to help with 192/24 playback stuttering issues.

your file appears intact and works fine on my BDP-Pi.

This occur regardless of which artist you select, it never loads? 

you could try deleting this file.

/mnt/img/restore/settings/artistview_last_artist

otherwise i might need you to place your bdp into service mode and email me the service id.

^ Thanks, Chris. Tried that... no change. I've placed the BDP-1 into service mode and will PM you the ID.

EDIT: and, yes, clicking on different artists just shows Loading...

Thanks, Chris. Looks like you fixed something, as I can go into Artists View and it loads immediately.

He Ken,

Yah the firmware wasn't taking into account if the bryston.db (contains the association of artist names to musicbrianz id's) was of a length of 0 bytes.  I'm still not sure what caused this oddity to occur, but we can certainly add check for this state before loading.

^ Just a quick FYI: after things were working on the current stable release, I updated to the latest BETA (11/27?).

Update worked fine, in regards to the issue we've been discussing.

However, I noticed something new: in the Artist View, we are back to the problem of non-English characters causing problems with (i.) Album Art display and (ii.) Album/Artist titles being corrupted. This is similar to what I've reported in the past, and has been fixed in the stable release.

For what it's worth, I went back to 10/07 (stable release), rebuilt the Bryston DB and the Artist View displays all non-English titles/album art, correctly.

Thanks for your help, Ken.

Last night I upgraded the MPD file and after that the album art showed up.  :duh: 8) The BDP-2 is a serious digital player. However, even without the album art, I find the folder system to work just fine and it is really all I need. I guess my point is that there is nothing wrong with Manic Moose.  :D
