Thanks WilB for the update, much appreciated!

Yes, I also thought about the shortness or non existing bio to be the reason but v0.72 gave top tags, top albums, similar artist results even if there was no bio present.
I also thought low listener/scrobble count would be the issue but couldn't find much consistency in that either.
Looking forward to your next release.
Thank you for your reply. Sorry in case I have duplicated another post (the title suggested it was only about buffer issues).

I've downloaded and run LatencyMon. Here is a screen capture, and below a summary of the full report. If possible I'd rather try simple measures first, before more "expert" operations like BIOS update...Thank you for those who would give an advice.

@jazzthieve The examples you quoted either don't have or have a very short actual biography. I had changed the detector for whether a biography existed & essentially if it didn't exist or was short, i.e. likely to be "We don't have a wiki here yet...", or something similar, it was rejected and none of the other extra info saved either.

Anyway I have changed it to a better detector, so very short bios should now be found, and it will also now include the extra info even if there is no actual biography. That will be in the next release. I probably need to test it further though...

@tr0ner. Are "Deluxe Edition", "Limited Edition" etc. part of your tags? The script already does some clean up of album names. I could add these to the list of terms that get stripped, so it always searches for the "core" name, which is more likely to find a cover. If there are any other terms worth including let me know.
FLAC / FooBar2000 TITLE Syntax Errors
Last post by acvegas -
I get this ongoing error message shown below when I attempt to open a FLAC File in foobar2000; any possible fixes?

Unable to open item for playback (Error parsing cuesheet: invalid TITLE syntax (line 95)):
"D:\Johnson\1999 – All The Music\Johnson - All The Music.cue"

Below is part of the cue file:

REM COMMENT "ExactAudioCopy v0.99pb5"
TITLE " All The Music "
FILE "Johnson - All The Music.wav" WAVE
    TITLE "All The Music"
    PERFORMER "Johnson"
    INDEX 01 00:00:00


Below is Line 95 (Title Syntax Error):

    TITLE "Love Me More (Peter Parker. Mix)"                                                     (THIS IS LINE 95)
    PERFORMER "Johnson"

Thank you again for creating this!!
It finds and downloads most covers automatically and works like a charm.

One idea: some albums are tagged with additional info like "Deluxe Edition", "Limited Edition" etc. and the scipt does not find the cover because of that.
 Maybe you could add an option in the right click menu to manually change the search term if there is no cover found?

The Yamaha WXC-50 (did you mean that one? Couldn't find a WCX-60)) looks very promising; it even has BlueTooth. I'm going to download a detailed spec and user manual, if I can find one.
And I could live w/o ChromeCast, if everything else worked fine - adding a ChromeCast-Audio to AUX in doesn't hurt much (add some 39€ and having an extra device, though). Another con is (imho) missing support for AppleMusic.
Does anything mentioned in this thread ring a bell?,113843/topicseen.html

Have you recently had a driver update or something?

@Arnold B. Krueger
The Problem with android driven boxes is that you cannot realize air-play-functionality in a proper way. And since we have some apple devices that is a important function. Furthermore i need the streaming device as expansion of my hifi-system - means: without a tv as uncomfortable medium.

@eldarien & @sundance
So far the best of my Research:
  • Pioneer N-50AE. But it has not full dlna functionality
  • Yamaha WCX-60. But it has  not chromecast-functionality
As far as i have heard both apps are good
