I wasn't saying it affected the visual discrepancy issue. I was saying that your statement doesn't hold true in that case, meaning the v1 tab can NOT contain whats in the basic or v2 tabs IF its not part of that v1 code list. I thought it important to make that clear, b/c your statement did seemed to imply what you said would hold true for ANY value, which of course is false. so in other words, I was just trying to clarify and be precise.

but a lot of the oomph of the implication of my question is lost with DrOs new build, and it seems this will all quickly become moot anyway.

right. I think what is partially addressed in the new build, is forcing parsing. the UI portion to be done for next build. that's all a guess based on what he said and what we now observe.

Sometimes the full ATF string data is displayed on load and sometimes only on play. It seems to depend on how the file is added to the playlist.

Things like this I no longer complain about. Mostly because they have become very minor annoyances to me. When I did complain usually nothing could be done because of historical decisions in the Winamp design that would require a major code rewrite to change things. Anyway, I've come to accept small things (to me) like this as part of Winamp's personality.
I don't use those aspects, but they probably should be reported.

preaching to the choir. as to the 2nd point, I think you did know about it, u just forgot. that's what my "apply" button request for alt+3 was about.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing
