    Hi guys.
    It looks like I've fixed the problem which bothered me for all 10 years I'm using MediaPortal and lead me to imperfect music experience in Mediaportal for me.
    So if you ripped CD with EAC and splitted disk to track but still have the original EAC cue file like this Cue sheet - Hydrogenaudio Knowledgebase in directory MediaPortal will go crazy showing such files. Ofc you will see two times more files in folder but also such dupes will have strange length. If you will try to play this file you will recieve error dialog which you should manually dismiss.
    My suggestion is to exclude content of such cue files from parsing by adding additional isMultiFileCue property and setting it to true if parser found >1 FILE tag in cue. Ugly patch (for 1.3.0) in attach. Probably it will suit fine for current MP. If someone need it I could try to compile binaries for latest MP.

    Br,
    finally happy MediaPortal music plugin's user.

    hello @Edalex
    thanks for your contribution,
    i have the same issue than you, when i done my rip, lot of times i have the cue files with single track on album folder.
    and MP have problem to select or display track items. and my solution is to delete cue file, and keep single track only in folder.

    if 2 cue/disc are available inside folder, how it work ?

    Hey @azzuro
    Your issue could be different to mine since your're talking about singlefile+cue. Could be problematic cue or so. But since I've already digged in the code I could check your case if you post (here or in PM) list of your file names and cue contents.
    if 2 cue/disc are available inside folder, how it work ?
    It will eliminate 2, 3,4, all cues which lead to multiple files in them. I'm assuming such cues are no use for MediaPortal now since I believe they are for restoringoriginal disk not playing files.

    but what about the multi-disk cue? say three flac files, and to each cue files.

    I never saw such cues. I think cue is producing while ripping disk not disks.

    you work on windows 3.1 ?
    That's Far. It will be very cool soft if total commander didn't exist. And you didn't post your example of cue

    That's still one file=one cue so it's fine. Let's find cue with two discs.
    Btw, disc index properties are unknown to MP ;-)
