I dont even have my squeezebox yet but have set up the server software and scanned my tunes. I am not sure if this is supposed to work or not - but when I browse by Genre, then select an Artist within that Genre - it lists all of my tracks! All 4000 of them under a given Genre/Artist!
This cant be right? So are you not able to see the individual tracks under a Genre and then an Artist listed under that Genre?
Thanks for you responses!

- check your tags using MP3Tag
- under 'server settings - behaviour' there is an option for what to show based on genre browsing, but it seems to make no difference to me. Anyway, it should never do what you are seeing. So it's a tag thing.

Sorry about that, I forgot that bug is viewable only by admin and developers. I'll summarize:
Bug 4824: behavior setting: filter genres at album & track level broken.
It seems the filtering behavioral options is broken.
It seems to me that selecting the option "Show any tracks & albums for an
artist" (within a genre selection) should show exactly that, any tracks and
albums by said artists.
Reproduction steps summarized:
Server settings -> behavior -> filter genres at the album & track level -> Show
any tracks & albums for an artist.
Browse -> Genres -> (choose a genre) -> click all albums -> click all artists.
SlimServer doesn't show all tracks and albums in said genre, it shows all
albums and artists in the library regardless of genre.Ross L

Ross, so are you saying that yes, it is a bug that I can't see the tracks listed under a given Artist when browsing by Genre?

OK. So I think you are confirming my question. ??? Currently you are unable to view a given artist's tracks under a given genre when first browsing by genre.
So for example, If I wanted to view Johnny Cash's tracks that are tagged as Country Genre, I can't until this bug is fixed with 7.0. ???
When will 7.0 come out?
If this is correct - wow. This is how I listen to my music. I will select a genre first, and then select tracks under that genre. Or just shuffle the genre.
Anyway - I hope this gets fixed soon. Probably wouldnt have purchase the squeezebox if I had know about this before-hand.
My squeezebox is due for delivery Friday. Can the bug be fixed by then? lol
Thanks for your responses.

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't bug 4824 only refer the the case when you doesn't select a specific artist.
In my setup I have:
Server Settings->Behaviour->Filter genres at the album & track level = "Only show tracks or albums matching the selected genre for an artist"
With this configuration I can browse to:
- Genres/Country/All Albums (Which shows all albums in the Country genre)
- Genres/Country/Johnny Cash (Which shows all albums in the Country genre by Johnny Cash)
- Genres/Country/Johnny Cash/I Walk The Line (Which shows all songs in the Country genre by Johnny Cash from the album "I Walk The Line")
If I hit play on "Genres/Country/All Albums" it will play all Country albums.
If I hit play on "Genres/Country/Johnny Cash" it will play all albums by Johnny Cash within the Country genre.
If I hit play on "Genres/Country/Johnny Cash/I Walk The Line" it will play all tracks by Johnny Cash within the Country genre from the album "I Walk The Line".
Isn't this the behaviour you are seeing ?
Are you expecting a different behaviour compared to this ?Erland Isaksson (My homepage)

Erland, you are correctly describing bug 4824, it is an issue when you browse -> genre -> artist, and yes you must select an artist to reproduce that bug. However, this is not what Club1820 *originally* described.
