FS#837 - Scrolling lines sometimes disappear

Yes Im aware this has been sent before, but after
downloading the latest Bleeding version, when playing
songs, the Artist in the ID3 tag data disappears just
before playback commences! e.g

the WPS on my Archos

Solsbury Hill
Other People’s Songs

the word “Erasure” is shown for a second then it
disappears! After going through the long and ardious
task of manually retagging 700 MP3 files the same
problem occurs!

Ive resorted to use version 1.4 of Rockbox as it has no
trouble reading ID3 tags!

This is an issue with the new lcd scroll code.

I take it this concerns a Recorder?

Can you please show us your WPS config?

I have the same problem. A recorder with the following WPS:

%s%?ia<%ia|%?d2<%d2|(root)» %s%?id<%id|%?d1<%d1|(root)» %s%?it<%?in<%in.


%pc/%pt (%bt)
%fbkBit %?fv<avg|>
%?iv<(id3v%iv)|(no id3)>

For the current song, the
top line shows "Delerium" for <scroll_start_delay> ms, and then clears
as soon as the third line scroll starts. I have also seen cases where the top
line has been "corrupted" with strings from previous songs, although
it's tricky to repeat.

It doesn't happen all the time, though. My next
song now, shows "Vangelis" on the top line and it never clears. Trying to
find a pattern…

It happens only very rarely. I had to step ~30 tracks ahead to find it again.
This time, the top three lines contain this:

The Best Of UB40
(Volume One)
10. 10 Please Don't Make Me Cry

As before, the top line
is cleared when the third line starts scrolling. One interesting thing is
that line #2 does not scroll even though the line is longer than fits on the
screen. The above text is only visible up to "(Volu".

And btw, I use the
uwe_prop font.

Fixed in CVS.
