View Full Version : SlimServer is picking up too many artist names

It's driving me crazy! :) I have looked for every control and turned off everything I could find that would allow SlimServer to interpret artist names (including saying don't pick up composer/band/orchestra). I have wiped the cache and rescanned.

But it still picks up artist names from other tags. Example:

Artist Tag: Chess Story
Album Tag: Chess Story 1950-1951
Track Tag: 22
Song Tag: Chuck Berry - Sweet Little Sixteen

In my artist list, I should only see Chess Story (I don't want the artists listed individually). But I see Chuck Berry listed separately, and when I click on it, it says it's on the Chess Story album.

Thanks for any help!

Edited to add: I think this has been fixed in 6.1b1, which I thought I was using, but I will double-check and download if necessary, then report back.

Johnny - could you please open a bug on this, and attach the file in question?

Thanks.

Will do, Dan, unless the latest beta fixes the problem, in which case I will post back to this thread.
