Has anybody managed to get their music collection to be recognised by their Zidoo, without it being in a mess?

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry Garry, Not possible using the Zidoo Music 3 app. A shame as version 2 showed promise and recognised the tags of most songs and albums reliably, something that seems quite beyond Music 3. As mentioned above I use Kodi for music playback instead which apart from resampling to 48KHz, works perfectly. I don't find the resampling spoils the sound quality which is still excellent on my system.

Garry,
Thanks for the reminder about Aeon MQ. I hadn't tried it for a while because as far as I can see it doesn't show the progress of a playing song and it doesn't show an album's total duration both of which you get with Confluence. Aeon MQ8 works perfectly with Kodi 18.2 on Windows and sure has some great graphics. I'll try it on Android later but I don't see why it wouldn't work with Kodi or ZDMC 18.2. I don't have a Zidoo any more but I'll try it on my current Android box and report back.

Aeon MQ8 added to Kodi 18.2 running on my current Android 8.1 box.
Aeon MQ8 is certainly a very impressive skin with loads of customisation possible. It's probably going to take me a while to get it set up to my liking but good to see that if when it's playing any music track and it's in full-screen mode then the track's total and elapsed times are displayed.

What settings do people use for their display parameters? Not completely convinced on the picture quality.

Hi all, old thread so hoping people still view from time to time.

I don't know if it is coincidental, but ever since I upgraded to the latest firmware the poster wall no longer shows any artwork, both cover and background. You can go to change the image, find the cover, then click save, and for a split second it looks like its trying to save it, then you are left with nothing, just the standard movie wheel icon.

Really scratching my head as to why it cant save covers.
