Two screen setup; every other song...
« on: April 23, 2018, 05:58:28 PM »
Hi all-
  Recently switched to a Two screen setup.  I am seeing an issue where every other song- on the second screen the 'Now playing' info is completely blank (no song title, artist or album art).

Any help or anyone see this before?

I am running Etouch 10, windows seven with the TouchGeniPattern_V09.beta skin

Here are my settings:
Full Screen Mode: ticked
Use Second Monitor: ticked
Now Playing on second screen: ticked
Second Video Monitor : 'All' ticked.
Second ID Monitor set to 'manual'. (I could not get 1 or 2 to work successfully, one time it would work, next time it wouldn't).
Manual Screen Resolution 'X: 1024x768 (matches monitor 1 resolution)

First thing I would try is using another skin, second would be check to make sure you have that info for all songs as obviously nothing will show if it is not there.

I don't have a second monitor to test for you but try the basics first.

It's definitely not missing album art or artist info.  If I display the 'Now playing' on screen as well- it displays on screen 1 - just not screen 2 (exactly every other song played).

As far as changing skins- this is by far my favorite- can you recommend a skin with the same features to try?

I have also now tried Retro_singles (from v10 skins).  I am still seeing the same results - just a frame for now playing - without album art \artist info.  Every other song.  Wondering if this is something I should be posting under bugs?

Just out of interest what version of 10 are using? If it is 10.1.7 then yes it probably is a bug/

I am running two screens without a problem. I think the only thing that shares the now playing screen is attract mode. Have you got this enabled?

If you mean 'Now Playing on second screen'?    Yes, it is ticked.

@Mark Norville- I am running the most recent private release 10.1.6

I never have used attract mode before.  I just tried with Attract mode ticked.  Same results....

I am moving this thread up under the V10 release thread.

O.K. I have mine slightly different as I have now playing and attract on the first screen so that music videos don't get interrupted.

It sounds like a bug with crossfading which is why every other song shows the correct information. You could turn off crossfade if you are not using it.
