BDP-2 Display Lag
« on: 5 Mar 2018, 05:26 am »
It's doing it again! Every once in a while the front Display on my BDP-2 fails to update to the song currently playing. I am listening to the next song, but the display is still showing the song that I just finished hearing.  :scratch: :scratch:

Has anyone else had this issue?

Does it have anything to do with the size of the library?

Hi

Are you connected to a network or using the man-cave option with a dedicated router not connected to the network?

Mine occasionally has a delay in refreshing to the current track when I press the forward button on front panel. Otherwise, it's OK with MPad.

Thanks for responding.

It's connected to a network. I have created a (temporary) playlist and it is cruising through the songs and then after a while the display stops updating accurately. About half way through the next song, it catches up. If the music is directly connected (which it is via USB), I don't understand how the network can be a factor.

It may be using the net to fetch other info related to tagging, cover art etc ?.   :scratch:
In any event, if it's not affecting the playback (no skips?), don't go nutz over this.

Hi

I will let Chris answer - I may be wrong but I have found that sometimes if the network can not find the next album art or artist info it lags behind.

Now this is an interesting comment!  I have a BDP-pi.  98% of my collection is classical.  I have an active project to rip most of my collection.  Unless cover art comes with a download, cover art never appears.  Window Media Player finds and displays cover art (from where, I have no idea).  But Foobar2000 doesn't find it anywhere, and neither does the BDP-pi.  The few pop and jazz items in my collection don't retrieve or show cover art, either.

Same with BDP-1/2. 

I resort to Google the album, and save the cover image as "cover.jpg" in the album folder. Then MPad will display the cover art automatically.

I thought there was some magic repository out there on the web with album covers.  Windows Media Player is able to find it (usually).

Who knows?  MusicBrainz and FreeDB are two sources of album metadata that some rip software uses. When in doubt, do the Google.

As others have posted it could very well be the front panel software is busy doing something, cover art is a likley culprit. If you have a playlist that seems to do it frequently you are welcome to place the bdp into service mode and email me the service Id along with the playlist preloaded.

Thanks, Chris

I can''t say that it does it often. i was playing tunes from a 4TB USB-connected hard drive that is almost full. Is there some sort of pre-fetch that the BDP does that could be sucking up CPU time?

freedb.org has what I think is called metadata -- movement numbers and tempos, first words of opera arias, etc.  Freedb doesn't have album covers.  Musicbrainz is worthless.  There are no covers for any album I own, classical, jazz, or pop.

As I said: for cover art, do Google and download. Often, multiple covers for same album crop up, so one can choose whichever one looks more colorful.

Try Album Art Exchange and then click "gallery"

I doubt you'll find classical, as it's all user-added album covers. And lately, I haven't found as much as I used to, but still worth a try.
