As said in my previous append I am still seeing no improvement either.
Wait for Linus reaction before starting any big work on your libraries! 8-)

To answer your question I am currently using MusicMatch Plus at level
8.2 but I have used all levels since 1999 and the TCON tags always look
the same simple way, e.g.

    * TCON the frame identifier
    * $00 00 00 05 the frame length
    * $00 00 the frame flags
    * $00 Jazz the genre string itself

I am not too sure of what is the leading $00 in the string but it is
there in all cases I have analyzed, including when the genre coding is
of the form (xx). In this case the string would be $00 (40), for example.

Again; let's wait for more info from Linus before worrying any longer.
After all, my main usage of categorizing tags is on the PC side when
managing my libraries or when creating playlists for the jukebox.
Therefore as long as my host tools find what they need (and they do) the
trouble is not too serious.

Cheers. Jean. a écrit:
