View Full Version : Tagcache album sorting error?
In albums for which I have correct ID3 track numbers, using tagcache shows the album in correct order, but selecting a song takes me to a completely different song by alphabetical order...
E.g.: If I have tracks 01-B, 02-C, and 03-A, and the track number isn't in the filename, tagcache correctly shows them in track order (B, C, A), but if I select track 3 (A), it takes me to the third track in alphabetical order (C).
Is this a known problem with tagcache? I know on the wiki incorrect track sorting was a known issue, but it also had a bunch of comments added to it that suggested the problem was already addressed.
i think i am also having the same problem here... except mine is somewhat more general..
everytime i go into
Artist > All tracks > and select the first song
it plays a different song.. and i turned of shuffle.. so i have no idea why its doing that..
general settings>playback>play selected first>yes
Does that help?
No, play selected first was already on.
It's not just the first selected that plays incorrectly. The list goes in filesystem order, not the playlist order.
I don't have time right now, but perhaps this is just a problem with a recent build? I switched for the new scheduling stuff (skipping while scrolling was no good) recently, but I can't recall if this was happening before. Many of my albums have the track number at the beginning of the filename, so I just might not have noticed.
I believe it was mentioned that this problem is associated with all builds as of two days ago.
Could you please provide a link u4ik? (curious)
that actually doesnt help.. i selected the first song out of all the songs i have on my x5.. and it plays another song... the thing is.. its like on shuffle... but it plays the songs in the same order.. so it like piks a random order and stays with that order ... i havnet seen it change ...
i figured out my problem... the Load To RAM feature was on YES which is why it kept doing that... i dont really understand that feature any more :o ..
Odd, load to RAM should have nothing to do with the problems you mentioned.
"Load to RAM" has nothing to do wtih my problem, nor does "Play Selected First", or "Follow Playlist".
The rockbox forum just came up sometime yesterday, and mentioned tagcache stuff fixed recently, so I'll try a new CVS build and report back...
If this was an actual bug in rockbox for a while, why isn't everyone following CVS builds having it?
EDIT: Well, the latest CVS build gives me a crash with "I40: PDIRFULL" when initializing the tagcache. Bah.
I got that sorting problem as well.
i'm using the rockbox-20060916-1701 build by maxwen. so it could be, that the problem is related to last weekends builds. because i never noticed it before.
can anyone tell if that's true? or anybody using the same build with the same problem?
could be the thing: http://www.rockbox.org/daily/changes-20060919.html
18 Sep 22:47 Hardeep Sidhu apps/playlist.c 1.172 Fixed problem with first_index being incorrectly updated when prepending tracks. Fixes example 1 in B#6005.
i'm not shure about it. anybody who nows exactly?
yea i kinda gave up w/ rockbox :s.. i just put bak the normal cowon firmware.. its got to complicated @ this point.. and its not working with me :) .... good luck with your problem. hope its solveable.
Up until now I was using maxwen's 060822-2237 build. From maxwen's build that you mentioned (060916-1701), up through the very latest CVS builds, I get that I40:PDIR1FULL error. There's been some activity in the ID3 and tagcache code in the last couple days, but I still get that damn error. Hopefully it fixed some of this sorting stuff.
I've searched high and low... is there any documentation as to what I40: PDIR1FULL even means?
If anyone else has a problem similar to mine, please speak up. I get it 100% of the time, and no one on either board has said anything about having a problem matching mine, so maybe it's something in my library that's messing things up.
Those builds were causing trouble in my X5 also. I have now downloaded yesterday CVS build (and no patches) and don't have that problem, also the PDIR1FULL or something like that hasn't showed up. It might be that some patches shouldn't go toghether.
It was my library. Hidden amongst my collection was an m4a (mp4/AAC) file. It took ripping out a few thousand songs and systematically adding music back to find it, but that was it!
Maybe the tagcache in earlier rockbox builds ignored mp4 files altogether, and it hangs now that it's trying to handle them?
