Hi,

Just installed the above nightly on my LinkStation.

On first run the software rescans the library and only finds 7 out of over 200 artists.

Have tried rescanning the library with "Clear library before rescan", have tried deleting the DB file and rebooting and letting SlimServer rescan the library but each time it only finds 7 artists.

Any ideas about this?

JonM,
Try turning on d_info and restart the scan to see what it's doing...

I to am seeing the same thing with the 8/17 nightly; only 85 artists show up. I'm running a scan w/d_info set. I'll report back soon.

Is there a full copy of the log somewhere?

Thanks KDF.

Attached is a partial log which includes the relevant entries for the album Diva from Annie Lennox. Annie Lennox does not show up as an artist after any type of scan (increment, full, or deleted .db file). I just select this artists is it was one I noticed missing, but there are many missing.

I'm not sure what I'm looking for, so I'm hoping the information or absense, makes sense to someone who knows the code. I'll do more debug if that helps.

I no longer know where ARTIST tag info is reported in debugging, so its a bit of
a guess for me. Are you able to see Diva show up under Browse Albums? If you
do, what do you see in the songinfo page for one of the songs? I notice that
one track is being split by ; I'm wondering if this is tricking the server
into flagging this album as 'various artists'. Songinfo page will show
trackartist, and albumartist if they exist. You might want to report this as a
bug, or look at the other 'various artists' bugs currently open to see if any
resemble what you are seeing.

No, the Diva album does not show up under Albums either.

I think I've narrowed down the problem to the "Don't include compilation artists in the artists list" select. With this set, not all albums and artists are not added correctly. The album, artist, and track counts are correct, but the album and artist do not show up.

I think this feature is not working correctly.

Setting ';' in Multiple Items In Tags does not seem to matter - i've rescanned (with cache nuked each time) with and without this set.

Added bug #1995.
