If you own the BDP-1 and you don't have an iPad, now is the reason to buy one! :icon_lol:

I've been patiently waiting for Apple to announce their new BDP-1 remote, now with the Mpad app I really can't wait till March 25th :)

I've downloaded MPad today and it looks great but I've found an possible issue.
I have my own non-commercial music on a USB memory stick connected to the BDP-1
MPaD sees the music but dosn't display the album art
I have used Mp3tag to insert an image into the matadata of the FLAC files and there is a Folder.jpg in the directory where the music is but no cover image in MPad. What I am I doing wrong?
I do see cover art for commercial music on the memory stick though.

Thanks,
Terry

The iPad 2 is released - dual processor with much faster graphics, thinner and lighter than the original iPad. The Apple BDP-1 remote is likely the MPaD client interface for MPD players (BDP-1 is one example) avaialble through the Apple store.

In settings there is a line to specify a directory holding jpg files. Don't know if it owrks. I do wish MPD would allow retrieval of embedded data in flac files. Perhaps in a future release of MPD server.

It seems to be an entry for a Web address?

It must work somehow as it allows you to specify a name for the jpg
It just seems to be igoring it
MPoD behaves in a similar way

This is the problem with MPD server and client software. Album covers are downloaded from Amazon with MPaD. There are a number of esoteric albums I own without covers showing although they were tagged in when ripped in Media Monkey to flac files. I hope this will change down the road. There is quite a bit of ongoing development with MPD and I believe some of this is to support covers. Once the BDP-1 will read NTFS formatted drives, this situation might also improve (?). I hope this information is accurate, but it what I seem to understand from my reading on the MPD website. Got to love public domain software and I have faith something will come about sooner than later.

Hello.
I used mapad all day and I must say it has solved the main problem was the bdp1, is really very nice.
Would only solve the problem of cover for the collections that are not on the database amazon.
In use, turn off every time I search by artist, but they are teething problems.
When the next release of firmware will solve the problem of waiting times our bdp1 will be perfect.
Could you explain something?
What will change when the bdp1 will work with NTFS hard drives?
I originally had hd NTFS and read them, what will serve the possibility of writing?
Thanks and sorry again for my bad English

Hi al,

I have 3 BDP-1 units at home :oops: - 2 green and 1 blue.

The 'thing' on top is the electronic crossover for the Sanders electrostatic speakers.
