I've received my player yesterday. It sounds very good. Is it possible to display the album cover when the picture file named folder.jpg remain in the folder? Or possible in the future?
Best regards from germany
sure, X3 already supports extra cover files when playing all the music format except the mp3 format. be sure the cover file must has the same file name and in Jpg, bmp or png format
I have a suggestion. Since the vol+ and vol- buttons are unused while browsing files, could you consider to add a fast scrolling function? If we could scroll 10 files at once with these buttons it would make easier to browse through the songs for those of us who chose to stick with a single HUGE directory. This could be a nice palliative until the quirks with the file browser on 64GB cards are resolved and the ID3 tags on m4a files are finally readable.
sounds good but we may let the vol+ and vol- work when it is not assigned for other function. means you can adjust the volume in main menu or other sub menu.
got it, will discuss with our engineers
that is how i have done my files for years. on this one, i don't care about space. for me it looks much neater. and this works for me james on various daps! so while you may want to include the folder.jpg as a new fw feature, please do not remove what we currently have. ok?
That sounds absolutely fantastic!
What i'm hoping to see in the end in the Category view is something like this
Sorting by album alone seems like a hassle, as a player with a 64GB microSD and 8GB internal space, willl have LOTS of albums, and therefore almost impossible to browse in pure album view. I keep pushing the Album Artist tag, as it gives the possibility to keep compilations sorted by main artist, and XXXXartist Feat. YYYYartist will still be sorted under XXXXartist, and not as a new artist.
Mostlikely useless info, but i'm using this in Foobar with this string: %album artist%|%album%|[[%discnumber%.]%tracknumber%. ][%track artist% - ]%title%
Thanks you! That's what I wish, but I couldn't describe it. I use the Logitech Media Server for my squeezeboxes and i have so many directorys with flac files with one album cover (folder.jpg) for all files of this Album.

first of all thanks for following up this thread and for being so close to your customers. That's amazing.
Based on the last few pages, it seems that the latest firmware update is going to address most of the "urgent" requests (tags for ALAC; category browsing for Artist--> Album; hopefully the CLICK sound between song; indexing issues for huge folders), which is great... and super fast !
Please find here few suggestions for improving even further this amazing player (all nice to have, definitely not critical):
- In the "Playing" screen (Lyrics/Tag display view) show the Track number (value from the ID3 tag)
- In the "Playing" screen (Lyrics/Tag display view) show the total number of tracks in the folder (or in the album). It would be great to combine it with the previous point, so you can have "Now Playing" track 3/12 (3rd track out of 12)
- In the "Playing" screen (Lyrics/Tag display view) show the Album name (value from the ID3 tag)
- Not sure if it requires any specific Hardware / Firmware tweak, but it would be nice to have a clock displaying the actual time in the status bar

just bought The Rolling Stones - Grrr! from HDTracks, put it on X3 internal memory, files are indexed except track 08, X3 BUG !!
Edit : just renamed the folder, reindex and then it's indexed
If I were less lazy, I'll write a tool to check what's on X3 internal memory and SD card and compare it to what is indexed on the sqllite db on internal memory. I wonder how many files are not indexed and why !
