It is most likely a bug in the Onkyo, try removing the album art, which is embedded in the flac file, if still no go, try removing some of the other tags until you are left with just title, artist + album, see if that works.
Perhaps the player does not use ID tags, only the filename.Try removing all tags from a flac file.> the dBpoweramp settings and now when I rip the ID Tag shows [artist] for Artist and [album] for Album. Naming scheme is [album artist]\[genre]\[album]\[track] - [title]. What do I need to correct?The naming section, it does not change ID tags (only ID tags change the naming section), make sure you have overide settings for ID tags in CD Ripper (options >> ID Tags & metadata), if stuck you can reset all settings:http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php...from-the-SystemThen reinstall
The default install of dbpa would automatically have the tags setting to pick up ALBUM, ARTIST, TRACK, TRACK NO, etc. So I suspect the ripping is setup just fine. You can confirm this: In file explorer, right click on one of the files, then click on EDIT ID TAG. This will open a popup window from dbpa that shows all the existing fields within the tag of this file. I suspect you see artist, album, track, etc. containing the correct info. Do this with both a file ripped with EAC and one ripped with dbpa. Any differences???Also, what NAMES do the files themselves have? 01 - Willie Nelson - Phases and Stages - Bloody Mary Morningor01 - Bloody Mary Morningetc.List a couple of examples of actual file names from your files. And list one that works right (from EAC) and one that doesn't work right (from dbpa)....and you're sure that the player doesn't read only ID3vX files by chance. Of course this is not correct type of tag for a FLAC file, but it can be added. Maybe you're adding this type of tag in EAC and not in dbpa, and the player is reading the ID3vX tag. Don't know, just a thought.
If you view the tag info in mp3tag I'm pretty sure it'll tell you what tags you have, ID3 or otherwise.
So is there a way to force/configure the dBp to write ID3V2 when ripping to FLAC?
We removed the option, Onkyo really need to follow the standard (I bet they test for ID3v2 tags for every format they play, which is not good design).
The time between FLAC originally supporting ID3v2 tags and the time that has passed since, warrants writing support being dropped, if programs / devices are not Vorbis Comment compliant, they should be by now, for them not to be only hinders FLAC (as much as all the other limiting aspects)I still advocate legacy support, our FLAC routines will read ID3v2 tags, just no longer write them.>But is there an earlier version of dBp I could use?http://www.dbpoweramp.com/install/dMC-R13.4-Ref-Trial.exeIf you grab the Flac dlls from that install (in decoder and encoder), then configure to enable ID3v2 writing (dbpoweramp configuration >> codecs >> advanced).
I remember Spoon was once bashed on this forum for supporting ID3 in FLAC, which was a feature nobody should use. Now when finally the “feature” is removed, there shows up someone who has dumb enough equipment to require it. And Onkyo ... ... look, there was even a firmware update less than two months ago. They are maintaining it, and they only need sufficiently many kicks in their walking + sitting organs. (You have the most up-to-date firmware?)
You would want to copy those 2 dlls to another folder (keep them separate so you know which is which), then install R14 again and copy those 2 dlls back, overwriting the newer ones R14 installed.dBp>configurstion>dBp configuration>illustrate>codec>advanced.Under the FLAC Id Tagging, set from Vorbis Comments to Id3v2.
