Question

Playlists imported from iTunes are missing some songs

All my iTunes music is stored on my NAS and a copy of my iTunes Music Library.xml is also there. I Sonos indexed this share and at a first look all looks great. The music is there, playlists are there as well.

However in some of the playlists some songs are "missing" in a sense that
- The filename is shown instead of the title from metadata
- cover is missing
- trying to play it gives an error that Sonos can't find the file

If I manually search these songs in the library I can play them just fine. They are not DRM protected. I cannot find a pattern related to special characters, length of folder etc. I even deleted the XML and exported it from iTunes but that doesn't help.
Following two entries of the XML-file. The first one of a track that doesn't "work" and the second, that does.
