Not sure if this was present pre iTunes 8, however I've been noticing since I've updated that my album art is getting mixed up.  For example I had a World Inferno/Friendship Society album on a Something Corporate album or Spoon on my Explosions in the Sky.  I've been using the built in cover search tool for some time and haven't had a problem before.  Anybody else running into this or hear of something similar?

I had something like this with iTunes 7. The program insisted to load for the album "Nirvana" (from Nirvana) a cover with a picture of complete dorks. This was somehow iTS related and not a flaw of iTunes itself.

Really? My Nirvana "Nirvana" album got perfect results, as did all my music.

Might depend on the Itunes store your using. Nirvana might be instead Greatest Hits in your region, hence the mixup.

No, it always was "Nirvana" here. The problem fixed itself some time ago (I think even before iTunes 8 came out), so there's the correct cover now.

I don't think I was quite understood.  I was pretty sure that all my album artwork was correct before updating to v8, but since updating I've noticed that some of my albums are suddenly showing album covers of other albums that I own, and not of the correct album.  After manually clearing the artwork, and having iTunes redo the album cover search, it's all fine and dandy again.  I usually have iTunes add covers to albums as I come across them in my playlists and then check each track to make sure each of them were properly updated.  Haven't had iTunes mismatch, yet.  Just somehow scramble em up later...

Am I imagining it, or have the MiniPlayer menu item and keyboard shortcut gone missing? Clicking maximise still works (:cool:), but I *know* there was a shortcut before.

theres a big keyboard shortcut list under the help menu.
Quite a few useful ones in there which you should look up.
