View Full Version : Tag info does not match what Slim is showing

Hi

Perhaps I am missing something.

I have just gone to great lengths to sort the tagging information out on all
my MP3 files on my slimserver.

I then wiped the cache expecting that the server would recreate the database
using the new information on the files. But this does not seem to be the
case.
I have even un-installed and re-installed the 6.02 software, but still no
joy.

For example I have correctly capitalised all Albulms eg "The Eye of the
Tiger", this change is not reflected on the slimserver.

Another question is there a way the slim server can ignore capitalisation ?

Eg Artist Fred Blogs and fred blogs being shown as the same artist ?

what you are requesting is somewhat contradictory. In one paragraph you are
noting that slimserver doesn't correctly match the tags you have painstakingly
set,. Then you ask that slimserver after what it reads from the tags, which
might not match every single user's desire for tagging. Not every case can be
solved with a global preference, especially when many band may not adhere to
formal title case.

Slimserver should be following your tags exactly, with the exception of the
known issues with unicode characters. What program are you using to write the
tags? Does it work with ID31, 2.3 or 2.4?

Do you have any CUE sheets sitting in your music directory tree? If so, any discrepency between the CUE sheet and tagging data will cause the same sort of problems you see when tags aren't exactly the same.

Sorry

The reason for the later part of the question was to try and avoid
re-tagging files in the future.

All my tags are currently correct. I use Tag&Rename and I use ID3v1 and
ID3v2. The tag info is the same on v1 and v2.
