Well after 6 hours of messing about and bothering mark it turned out to be latest v10 beta that was causing the issues.  Went to v10 latest stable release and hey presto.  Knew I wasn't that stupid when it came to tagging.  Now the big question is now that they all show in the filter there is no image for each artist as it looks like I have to copy artist image into artist image folder is that correct or is there an easier way.
Cheers and sorry Mark for all the questions I owe u..

Typical the slack brumie coding more bugs.

The Niall horan folder should be all you need

It should show the image as in the folder.

I bet if you went to version 9 it would all work

My bad, the image needs to be part of the tag, it is not part of the folder.

I have it there, mainly just for show.

In fact forget what I said up there, and click on use first image found, so you have a folder or a cover jpg file.

in appearance on options:  Display 1st image found is the option on v10 and it doesn't work for filter images. It looks like its a long slog adding images to the cvr counterpart again.

I wouldn't bother to be honest, download version 9 and have it so that it works, you don't want to create more work for yourself when it is bug fixing that needs to happen.

I am on 9.20 and works just great.

It will load I don't think that there is much between 9 and 10 to be honest. You can use version 7 skin on version 9 or 10 but then you lose some of the features.

It could work, and save you a lot of hassle. Get your jukebox running faster without having to mess around with cvr files etc etc, no bugs.

The list goes on.

For the filters each CVR file that is created needs an associated JPG to show on the filter screen. As all the CVR's are in one folder you couldn't use 1st image found. I really don't recommend using 1st image found as it is slower than specifying a filename.

So do I have to find a jpeg and name it the same as the cvr for each individual one as I thought.  Wow that's what I thought and already started last night you would think the cvr could tag a first image upon writing and could use one of the images within the folder as it would be easier perhaps alphabetical order rather than first image to save time. Surely this can be adapted into the program for artist as there could be hundreds and hundreds of them.

If it pulled the image for the first album that would work but it wouldn't look right and for genre and year would make no sense. This is why it uses it's own image, you could of course change that filter page to have no images and just be text and no images would be required then.

Yeah I understand and have images for all cvr's for genre and year but thought for artist first cover found would be fine.
