Your comment makes little sense to me.  An empty field is shown as empty, and an absent field as "?". If you don't want to see "?" then don't define the field in the first place. Why would you want to configure the display of something you put in your titleformatting you don't want there to be? Then why did you put it into your titleformatting then?

Also, like db1989 already mention, it's a perfect way to see if something wrong is up with your titleformatting.
Although this being a very old thread - I too would prefer not to see the "?" for absent fields / i.e. to be able to configure foobars' display of absent fields...
I had a look around in the preferences - but this is still the default & not-changeable behaviour...?
Would be great to have this as a column relative setting (imo).
Support - (fb2k) / No album art for parent folders
Last post by Tribble -
I'm using the default user interface and the album art viewer pane. In the Preferences I have "Prefer current selection" ticked.

In my Album List, I sort by folder structure and when an album has multiple CDs, each CD is in a separate subfolder under the parent album folder. In the parent album folder and each subfolder I have a cover.jpg image.

I usually play the whole set by double-clicking the parent folder in the Album List, which I have set in Preferences to "Send to current playlist".

If I have the parent album folder selected in the Album List though, I get no album art displayed. Unless I defocus fb2k by clicking on another window, explorer for instance, or whatever. Then the album art in the currently playing subfolder is instantly displayed (which is good). If I click back on fb2k's title bar to give fb2k focus again, that image instantly vanishes.

I guess fb2k doesn't display the art from a selected folder that has no audio files in it, even though the subfolders have. That's unfortunate for the way I tend to use it.

This isn't a huge problem, I've just noticed it quite a lot and I miss my album art so I thought I would mention it  ;D
You can easily substitute "anything but idiotically pathological" for normal.

But then again, how could I dare say such a thing if I thought DACs had no noise floor?
Quote from: Case
Also, all this pointless argument could have been avoided had someone said: "yes, noise can be audible but it doesn't matr for music listening", to which I'd have replied: "true".
Your example isn't only exaggerated but it's not accurate. No one agreed with me one bit but demanded proof of audibility.

Such falsehoods make Baby Jebus cry.

I replied to you with this on March 21:
"Lots of things 'can be audible' under extreme circumstances.   Cranking the volume during 'silence', for example.   That doesn't mean the noise matters *at all* during normal volume playback."

So  , right there  I 1)'admitted' that routinely inaudible noise can be made audible and 2) told you it didn't matter for normal listening

General - (fb2k) / Re: Monitoring the audio buffer
Last post by tedsmith -
In the past I've bought a USB network adapter for a laptop when I couldn't get network drivers for the builtin network hardware that didn't have too much latency.
FWIW I keep my audio buffering up at about 10 or 20 seconds, then I don't have problems when a drive needs to spin up, etc.

Thanks, I've managed to migrate my old profile without issues by copying values.

I want to report another small issue, I don't know exactly if it's old or happens only in the new versions:
When seeking the volume bar in the deskband controls to the left, volume level goes to 100% if mouse is right on the left edge of the bar or even outside controls on the left. Although it displays the lowest possible value (it's still filled a bit), if your scroll your mouse one step up you will get from 100% (0dB) to "Mute", then on the next step you will get to ~-45dB.
I think it's a bug and volume level should go to "Mute" (0%) in this case.

I've tried two things: doubling the audio buffer in foobar2000 (to 2000 milliseconds) and disabling the Ethernet controller.

Doubling the audio buffer didn't help. I still had audio artifacts when the hard drive and ethernet controller were heavily used (legal torrenting in the background). These artifacts also occur on Youtube and I have audio AND video artifacts with VLC as well (here is a video of this problem occurring, this is not my video but the "buzz" is exactly the same).

I've disabled the Ethernet controller and ran LatencyMon again. This time the results are OK, and I didn't hear any artifacts.
