Hi all - I've only had my Squeezebox for a few days, so forgive me if I'm overlooking something obvious, but is there a way to change the layout of the "Browse" menus?

The prime example is when browse by genre and looking at soundtracks. Right now it goes Browse Genre --> Sountrack --> Artist. Since soundtracks tend to have multiple different artists, I really want it to go Browse Genre --> Soundtrack --> Album.

Can I change that behavior?

TIA

there are multiple browse by entries under browse music, and depending
on what you want it might be best to go to browse artist instead of
browse genre (on the idea that a given artist might stay within a genre
better than a compilation or soundtrack album will).

That said, there is significant work going into producing a more
flexible backend for Slimserver that would allow you to define and
search on any number of attributes.

Another thing is that Slimserver today and in the future is going to
rely on your ID3 tags -- if they're not accurate, nothing's right.
