View Full Version : Case Specifics

Hello everyone,



Please forgive me if this is obvious but I have had a quick scan of the
archives and failed to find a definitive answer.



Has something happened between 5.4 and 6.0x with regard to the handling of
differently cased artists (in this example).



I notice that I now have:



Deep Purple

deep purple

Deep purple

deep Purple



All showing as 4 different artists.



I am progressing through my library with Tag and Rename and 'fixing' things
that are perceived wrong/inconsistent but I just wondered if this is a new
effect caused by more 'correct' processing of the available data or has it
always been this way?



Is there a switch that can 'cure' this 'symptom' or should I just sort my
data out?!? (only 200GB to go!)



Otherwise I would just like to add that I have found 6.02 running under
Windows 2000 on my aged HP Kayak XU800 dual PIII-733 with 1GB Ram and 2 x
150GB drives to be rock solid. I just bought in a Fujitsu Econel 50 server
box to re-house the entire collection using mirrored 300GB drives. The
Fujitsu is fairly quiet, had on board RAID1 and will be running Windows 2003
Small Business Server - is there anything I need to watch out for?



Kind regards

There has been a lot of debate on this subject. Currently there is no
switch in SlimServer to cure this. Best bet is to fix your tags. Just
remember to wipe cache before rescanning or SlimServer (6.02) won't
pick up the changes.

Thank you for that - I was aware of the discussions but not sure of the root
cause. I shall carry on then - wiping cache along the way.

Thanks again

Richard

This has been "fixed" in the 6.1 nightlies - case is ignored for artist bucketing.
