Just Bought,but running into trouble,metadata change


Recommended Posts

Hi i just bought this for my new Touchscreen setup,i have run into a few problems though.


1.When i go to change a Metadata,it never saves on restart. I have all of my AC/DC albums,but some appear as AC;DC,therefore creating 2 folders......When i go into Metadata edit i can see the options Artist and Album Artist and it has AC;DC.......So i go to change both bars for AC;DC to AC/DC.....It works first time and all my folders change into 1 main AC/DC folder,however on restart of Musicbox,it reverts back to the 2 folders again.

Whats going on? What am i doing wrong?




2.Is there a better option to turn up/down the volume knob via touch screen? Like a slider added,rotating the counter knob at bottom causes hassle by overlapping the windows drop down bar.

3.I cant seem to add Favourites to any of my songs that i play,whats wrong?

4.Additions,Will there be a visualizer added?What about a youtube quicklaunch for videos through musicbox.

Per #1, there could be some kind of saving issue in writing the file tags there. Can you narrow it down to one song file that is causing an issue so that I can test with it?

#2 I wasn't aware of, but I'll look into. Once the volume control is selected you can change it with the arrow keys, but that might not be very useful if all you have is the touch screen.

#3 Songs will be added to favorites when you rate them 5 stars.

#4 I do plan to add a visualizer eventually, yes. YouTube quick launch is a good idea as well. :)

So when i type in AC/DC all my album art appears,but dissapears after restart as it reverts back to AC;DC.


Is there a workaround to this,is there a folder somewhere that stores text data that might ovewright the metadata change? Its the only Artist so far that this does this to

Regarding the visualizer, may I suggest you simply incorporate the G-Force visualizer into Music Box Alpha rather than create your own. I've been using G-Force with Windows Media Player for many years and it's brilliant.

Nice, I wasn't aware of that. I'll definitely look into it. :)
