HTC Music Player sorting/art issues
The stock music player on ROM I am using (Virtuous 2.3) is, I assume, the latest out with the most recent OTA (8/26?).
I am having a beast of a time getting it to play well with the phone. I had a similar problem using Third Wave, but did not have this problem with FrankenROM.
I see ONE album art, it isn't even the first artist by track name, alphabet or anything else. I am not sure exactly how the phone decided on this particular piece of art. It is the same art for every track. My tracks are no longer broken down by artist either, like they once were. It is a huge folder called "Unknown Artist" that is literally filled with all of my tracks.
Previously, in 2.1, my songs were all sorted problem by Artist>Album>Song. Each tab worked properly as well, though I sorted by artist most times. All of my tracks are in the same folder on the internal storage (EMMC). I have never had an issue with it prior to Third Wave and now Virtuous.
I keep my music on the internal storage because I presently only have a 4gb SD card and feel that it is sufficient for what I do with the phone, especially considering that I've got 8 gigs built into the phone that I should be able to use. That is all beside the point.
I searched prior to making this post and didn't see anything else relevant to the issue that I am having. Is anyone else plagued by this or a similar issue? Is there a newer/better/different version of the HTC Music Player that might fix the issue?
Edit: I doubt this makes a difference, but I had this issue with both the Stock kernel and the Hydra kernel. I am currently on the stock kernel because I just installed a kernel patch for Virtuous 2.3.
