View Full Version : Composer wrongly picked up in Artist menu?
I just browsed to David Bowie on my artists menu and, with the SB on shuffle, pressed play. "Lust for Life" by Iggy Pop started playing.
I figured I'd got a tagging problem so checked the tags on the SB menu (by scrolling right in Now Playing. Everything looked fine. Album Artist was Various Artists, Artist was Iggy Pop. Composers were Iggy Pop and David Bowie. I'm guessing this isn't right but am puzzled as I don't see the same behaviour in the web interface.
Anybody able to confirm (or deny) that this happens?
(SB3, XP, WMA)
I've noticed this happens on Years too. If I go to 1969 then the files played seem to be all those with an Album Year of 1969 (I've forgotten how Logitech work out the album year, I have all the seperate tracks tagged).
Annoyingly, this means that remixes from old albums are played in the wrong year (a 2005 dance mix of a track from a 1969 album would be played as 1969). Also, compilation albums are often wrong unless all the tracks are from the same year.
Does anybody use these levels (Artist, Year, Genre) to play a lot of their music? I won't be able to use it at the moment due to these problems.
To the OP, sounds a bit like you have the Composer, Band and Orchestra in Artists option switched on. Squeezecenter/Settings/Music Library
The option enables song information about composers, bands and orchestras can be included in the artists list for browsing and search. Is Composers ticked?
Thanks for the response. I thought you might be right as I've tried just about every option to get my compilations to work as I'd like.
I've just looked though, and I've got:
None of the three checkboxes (Composer, Conductor, Band) checked.
On the three other categories, I've chosen:
- Group compilation albums together
- List albums by band
- Treat TPE2 as Album Artist
Does that sound correct? It is still my biggest problem with the SB. I simply cannot remove the guest artists from my artist list. (Not that that is the main issue here.)
Just thought I'd reply to my own post for the sake of anybody finding this thread as part of a search.
It's been narrowed down and is a bug. It's on the bugs database here: http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=9994
