Subject: RE: RLOD -> RMA anyone?
From: c0utta fish (c0utta_at_hotmail.com)
I might be completely off subject here, but some of this behaviour could
also be attributed to a bad ID3 tag. I and others have had this issue, and
Linus has determined it's related to the ID3 tag of the next song in the
playlist. This, in conjunction with RLOD, would explain a "stuck" Jukebox.
Just a thought..
