View Full Version : Duplicated Artists (v6.0.1)

I'm on the 4-4 nightly of the 6.0.1 branch, which cleared up the
composer / artist mixup. I'm now noticing that a few of the artists are
being duplicated in the browse artists list. The first listing contains
one album, with all the rest of the albums under the second listing.

The tags and folders are all fine. This is on XP using itunes. I don't
see a bug created for this yet, but I can do that if the problem isn't
just me.

Also, v6 is getting better and better- good job to everyone involved.

Scott - are you using iTunes alone, or with a Music Folder as well?

I've seen the same duplicated artist issue on linux (using 6.1/trunk)
I've just thought it was my tags until now. The tags look right on the
surface, but often I find the items under one version of the artist
are mp3 while the flacs end up under the other version, and since I
use different programs for tagging each, I'm guessing that perhaps
one is ending up as utf-8 while the other is 8859-1 or something.
I haven't really had a chance to try "fixing" my tags yet, so that's
all still just a guess.
