Bizarre Characters in Genre List (Corrupt Data?)

Post by DMLCo » Thu Jan 29, 2015 10:53 am

My genre drop down looks like this

I have

* Run the Maintain Library routines
* Downloaded and run the Remove Unused ... tool (which claims no unused genres exist)

I know there used to be a tool that let you run arbitrary SQL against the MM DB--would that be the next step here, or is there a better way to rebuild/reconstruct the genre list?
This used to show my recently played tracks. Sad to see @lozzd's tool go dark.

Are those genres assigned to any files? If not the following should be able to clean it up: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... used+genre

No they are not, and that tool finds no unused genres, which is confusing.
