View Full Version : 6.1 and multi-disc sets: I'm Confused!

OK, Iím REALLY confused by the "treat multi-disc sets as a single album" feature. I have a 6 CD set of Brahms piano works. I rip them to 6 whole disc flac files, named "Piano Works Ė D1" etc. I embed cuesheets in each flac file with the "album" title given as "Piano Works." I include a "DISCNUMBER=n" in each cuesheet, AND I use metaflac to add a "DISCNUMBER=1" etc. comment tag to each flac. None the less, Slimserver is making a hash of the set. I can browse to "Piano Works" but when I browse into the album, I see the whole set sorted by track number: six Track 1s, six Track 2s, etc. Does this feature actually work with flacs with embedded cuesheets? Does this feature actually serve any purpose?

DISC tag.

This should be working. Would you open a bug and attach the tags from
one of the problem discs?

Thanks,

I've recently seen this working correctly on one of my servers, and
incorrectly on another. Both are running recent svn checkouts of 6.1,
but slightly different revisions. I haven't tracked down yet whether
it's the revision number or some other setting that is making the
difference, but there are certainly some situations where this doesn't
work correctly.
