    I've an ongoing issue with the music database for month now...

    The LMH is supposed to send the latest added albums to the homescreen.... But if I'm switching to the music tab in home screen I have an empty cover shown, this cover is not linked to an album or a track. It's simple empty.... It is looking like this:


    First I thought this is related to the LMH, but it isn't... If I'm entering my music collection I have also an empty entry on top of the list as shown in the following picture, marked by the blue bar:


    If I press "enter" on this empty entry I get the following screen:


    As you can see there is nothing associated with this entry... If I now press "enter" again I get the following confusing screen:


    Does someone have an idea what it is all about and how to get rid of it ?

    My suggestion is that this strange entry is the one which is causing the empty cover on the home screen... Strange behavior also is: If I add new files to my NAS and MP rescans after awhile the empty cover is vanishing and the screen is showing correct. But if I restart MP the empty cover is immediately back... Don't have an idea what to do about it... I've deleted the database several times and rescanned my music collection. Has not helped... All my music files are tagged correctly... No empty entries in the folders (checked all of the)...

    Would be great if someone could help...


    P.S.: it is also not skin-related as I have the same issue in Titan, StreamedMP and Avalanche
