Currently when i play music from my playlists and go to now playing no backdrop is shown. Before 4.6 update i had backdrops. I have re scanned library and made sure i was using a self populated playlist and not a smart playlist (Just in case there is a compatibility bug) . I have checked on PC and on android NVIDIA Shield, both no backdrop. I Have made sure that the artist playing had a backdrop.  Hope this is a quick fix and thanks for all the hard work.

Hi, in my testing they seem to be working just fine.

Would you have any solutions for me? I just created a new test playlist with same outcome.

I use Emby on all my devices in the house to listen to music. Before the update when i played one of my playlists and was on the now playing screen there was an artist backdrop. There is an artist backdrop when i go and play a song by itself but that defeats the purpose of my playlists. I have put endless hours into labeling and making sure music is tagged right. Pre update I even took the time to drop in missing backdrops so that there was not a blank TV screen or monitor while that song was playing. So to sum it up when i pick a playlist and hit shuffle the music starts. Then I see a page with albums and what is up next. Behind that used to be a backdrop. After a min that drops off to what is now petty much a blank screen.

That looks good, right? What devices are the previous two?

That is the same device a shield. The first example is when I play a playlist. The second example is when I go to artist and play song.  There is no backdrop when I play a playlist and there was pre update.

So I am running 4.6.2 now and the results are the same. I have deleted all playlists and started a new test playlist. It does seem that some (and i do mean a few) songs i pick works. Also on the playlist page it does not show the artist under the song. The songs in which there is a backdrop has the artist as it is supposed to.

Did you make sure to run a library scan?

Yes I scanned all Music after update. Then Created the test and checked. Then scanned the playlists and checked.
