DSM-520 firmware 1.05 and album art

Post by k10ck3r » Wed Oct 17, 2007 5:59 am

I can't seem to get any album art to work with the latest (1.05) firmware. Versions 1.03 and 1.04 got stuck after a few changes, and I was hoping 1.05 fixed this problem, but with 1.05 I don't get anything at all.

Is there anyone out there with better luck than me that has gotten it to work?

Nope. I was hoping that the "stuck art" problem from 1.03/1.04 would have been fixed with this, but I guess the joke is on us. I just reported the problem to DLink, I suggest you do the same (and DO mention the stuck art problem in 1.04, to make sure they don't just re-enable the broken feature.)

Yes, I sent in a report a few days ago (making sure to report the stuck art in 1.03 and 1.04). I haven't heard anything from them since though...

It took a few days before I heard from them when I reported the stuck art problem. But then again, I'd settle for no reply, but a fixed firmware. :)

have you guys tried adding the album art to the ID3 tag?

That's where my art is. It just doesn't show with 1.05. It did with 1.03 and 1.04.

Based on testing so far, it looks like only low resolution art is being displayed. So far, only art up to 200x200 is working. Most of my art is 300x300 and 400x400, which worked fine in 1.04 (the limit used to be somewhere around 500x500, but it looks like it has been changed to something much lower).

There is a DLink guy hanging out on the AVS forum DSM-520 thread. He says the size will be expanded in the next firmware upgrade.

Excellent, thanks for the info. I provided them with a lot of details regarding both the size AND the "stuck art" and they told me they were working on reproducing the problem in their labs a few weeks back. Glad to know this is actually going somewhere.
