in "now playing" the picture changes from artist to album to "nothing" (means a grey backgound) and back.
Is this due to the monochrome skin I use? Or did something change from RC4 to 1.0?
As I remember it was normally artist - album or if no album tagged just artist without change. So what is "nothing" for? Genre?
Album, Artist, title are well tagged. Nonetheless I saw that this "grey background" appears also if no album is tagged. (Time of grey background doubles (misssing "???tag" plus now missing albumtag) before artist comes back)
So to me it seems that "grey background" is a place-holder for a missing information... right? if yes which one or alternativly how can I stop switching?
I have *all* files in one music folder (does not happen very often that I have more than two songs from same album)
