I am not aware of a playlist function in the classic sense. You can use My PS to edit the art and titles of what you play, but you cannot create or play from a list. Make sure the DMP has the SD card inserted properly and memory checks as "ok" on the front panel touch screen. The cover art feature won't operate without it.
Paul, I think you may have misunderstood my question. Please allow me to clarify. On your PS Audio web site, under "My PS," there is a section called "Playlist." I never had access to this area of the website before since I don't own a PWT. Since registering my DMP, I was granted access to this feature. Upon discovering this, I was surprised to see a list of all the discs I have ever played on the DMP. However, most of the discs I played were SACDs, with only a couple of CDs. The common CDs showed cover art and track listings. Most, but not all SACDs were listed as "Untitled, Unknown" and didn't include any cover art or track listings. This seemed to be related to the inconsistencies I was seeing on the way information was being provided on the front screen of the DMP. By the way, I do have the provided SD card in its slot. After spending a few hours yesterday playing with this feature and learning by trial and error, I was wondering if there exists an instruction sheet about how this web page operates. When I successfully uploaded some missing cover art for a CD, it wouldn't then download to my DMP when that disc was played. Instead, I received a red "r/w error
" displayed on the front screen as it tried to download the art. So, I was wondering if I did something incorrectly. Was the jpg file type correct? Was the pixel dimension correct? I just didn't know without having a set of guidelines about how this feature is supposed to work.
I also noticed that on some “Untitled, Unknown” discs I could update this information by utilizing the “Discogs” button. But on other disc selections the “Discogs” button wasn’t available. So again, some guidelines would be helpful.
Lastly, I am aware of an email sent out by Kevin a short time back that indicated some effort to to catalog SACDs would be undertaken, presumably as a way to allow the “Playlist” to be updated properly. (Only one of about 20 SACDs provided any title information).
UPDATE: Today (Monday) the art download feature is now working correctly on both CDs where I’ve uploaded the artwork JPGs. Perhaps the server just needed to refresh itself in some manner. Still, SACDs do not list properly. Perhaps I’ll have to wait for Kevin to send out further information about the SACD catalog project.
Update 2: I previously indicated that some SACDs showed up on the Playlist. Actually no SACDs have. The one SACD I thought was there was actually a CD from a boxed SACD/CD set of the same title. So, the Playlist is consistent in that it only shows CDs, and no SACDs.
