What does this red message mean appearing every time I start the Sensus ?
Also - my own experiments with a VERY-carefully-tagged collection of music (including album art) is that the doofuses go to the GraceNote DB EVEN WHEN the information is already embedded in the file and they don't need Gracenote for anything. Really screws the "Genre" tag especially, but also other things as well.as far as I remember, the Sensus hard disk comes with a preinstalled Gracenote database. The application (e.g., iPod) wants to display the album cover of the track being played and uses the db to get the info; why the programmers decided to share that with an extra message I don't know. There are a few user interface decisions in the car that are a little puzzling BTW If you are online the db should update itself. Never checked that side though.
I thought that too - but at the very least they are not using the Genre tag properly. It is pretty clear thatI find this annoying as well but only time I have this problem is when I am streaming via bluetooth. When I use a USB drive, it reads the metadata that I have embedded in each music file and comes up correctly each time and bypasses Gracenote. You would think they would only utilize Gracenote when there is no track info available.
wow, I envy your tagged collection I believe the gracenote DB is accessed to retrieve the cover art for possible display in the application window. The skipping over existing tags is sort of weird ... if available they should be used. It looks like the retrieval process is a bit grabby and gets more that what it should take.So while it is not a certainty, the simplest explanation for the behavior I am seeing is that Sensus is going to GraceNote even when it does not need to do so and is ignoring at least one (and perhaps more) of the embedded tags in the process.
