    Hi Helmut!



    You are right! After deleting the Database and creating a new one all works fine!
    Bur another Question: The TimeLine with of the last Track of the cuesheet shows me not the right time! Time line shows the Time of the whole file! I attach a screenshot and the cuesheet!

    Best regards

    Helios

    seems because it is the last file of the cue.

    Check, if you have the correct time for other files in the cue set.

    Edit: Confirmed. The total time for the last track of a cue is displayed wrong. will look into it by tommorow morning.

    Great news, that cue sheets are now supported!

    :D

    Question: is there also support for embedded cue sheets (i.e in flac files)?

    Best regards

    I do store my CDs as individual (per track) .ape files in folders and include a cue sheet per CD. I use dbpoweramp for ripping and EAC to create the cue sheets.
    The correct cue type I use therefore is Multiple Files With Gaps (Noncompliant) of EAC.
    See: EAC and Cue Sheets - Hydrogenaudio Knowledgebase
    This allows me to make a most exact copy possible later on.
    The cue sheet only gives little extra information.
    * That is the Pause length between the tracks (My stand alone CD Player eg. shows a "P" in front of the count down track time during the pause time. )
    * UPC and IRSC Data (mostly on newer CDs)

    Can MediaPortal interpret/handle the Multiple Files With Gaps (Noncompliant) type of cue sheets?
    What happens if MediaPortal finds cue sheet + individual files - could this cause problems?
    Can I disable cue sheets in MediaPortal if this causes problems in my case?

    boy, if you open a can of worms. :)

    never heard of that. will have a look.

    you can always disable cue sheet support by removing the cue extension from config.

    No need to worry - MediaPortal really does not need to support this type of cue sheet as it should give no advantage during playback.
    Most important for me is, that if I run into problems with my type of storing CDs I simply deactivate .cue (in the future version of MP that supports cue)
    Thank's for the info 'bout that hwahrmann!

    If you're interested in cue stuff here is a really nice application - CueTools:
    CUETools 1.9.5 - Hydrogenaudio Forums

    It allows converting different cue styles in other ones (single/multiple files different audio codecs...) and some other nice stuff like accurate rip verification of an already ripped CD + possible wrong offset detection if the CD is in the AR database, HDCD detection ...

    RE: patch 1890201

    Hi.

    I'm very happy with the current approach to the support of the cue files for audio content in the latest SVN.
    However, I have a request for small feature (or bug report?).
    The problem appears when cue file is pointing to non-existing audio file for entire album or track. MP displays all tracks it in the list, but obviously can't play them. Would be much better if such tracks won't appear at all.

    Btw. When error message appears and I press enter to close it, MP not just closes the message box, but also jumps to the next track.

    Thanks.
