Maybe it’s just my PWT, an older one but with current firmware (1.22). My issues happen irrespective of f/w version, though. PWT is connected to my network via Ethernet cable, NOT wi-fi. I have tried other cabling, moving the PWT right next to the router, etc. We have no connectivity issues with any other device in the house, including my PWD/DS (except the Bridge chokes on some 24/192 FLAC material, sound gets jittery and seems to skip around).
Has anyone else experienced any of the following?
This one is just since the new PS website launch last spring. If I play a disc for the first time that isn’t recognized automatically and then I go to My Playlist to enter tracks and cover art, the website seems to save this info on its own even though there’s no save to library button any more. I never get confirmation that the cover art has been updated, just that it has been uploaded. There used to be a button that would force the update. I have to press F5 to refresh the web page and then the cover art shows up on My Playlist. So now when I play that disc again, in about 15-20 seconds my PWT downloads the text info I entered at My Playlist but it never gets the cover art. The display says “downloading album art” for about 2 minutes then goes to “OK” but the art never gets written to the PWT screen or SD card. Yes, I’ve tried other SD cards. And I have to power cycle the PWT at that point to get it to try looking up anything else.
With the new website. if I play a new disc that is automatically recognized my PWT gets the text data and cover art, usually both within 1-2 minutes or so of playing. As another symptom check, I still need to change the art for one of those recognized discs at My Playlist and after I do that see if the changed cover art and updated file gets to the PWT.
This one is specific to discs saved into my library BEFORE the new website. If I delete one of those disc’s TXT and BMP files from my SD card then play the disc, both the text and BMP files get to my PWD and SD card again.
It seems the PWT rewrites cover art files when the screen changes. I have experienced what some others have where the cover art file rewrite might get interrupted/corrupted and the PWT crashes, requiring a power cycle. If I play the same disc again while that corrupt BMP file is on the SD card, the PWT crashes again. So I have to find that corrupt BMP file on my SD card and delete it. Sounds simple, except I have over 6000 BMP files on the SD card and the PWT does not put a current date stamp on the file, so I can’t just find the newest one. I have to search the text within the text files on the SD card to triangulate by song or title what the filename is. I’m not certain, but it seems to happen most often when you touch multiple screen functions too quickly. Somewhat similar to the DS/Bridge - if I try to change volume before the screen has been rewritten it seems to corrupt the file write, too.
I think that’s it - am I all alone with these issues? Any thoughts or suggestions are most welcome.
