Hi,

I am having continuing problems with 6.2b and the way it deals with displaying Artists and Albums properly.

After scanning my library Slimserver does not seem to be displaying the correct number of albums, nor does it display the albums it has scanned correctly.

When I browse by artist, Slimserver does not display all of the albums by that artist and when I browse by album, it just doesn't display albums in my music folder at all.

I am only experiencing this problem with 6.2b, as 6.1.2 is working absolutely perfectly.

All of my music has been ripped in WMA Lossless with Windows Media Player 10.

Any ideas would be appreciated, as I really want to test the new Squeezebox firmware.

Cheers,
Marc

Maybe the albums are being detected as various artist albums - try looking under the "various artists" artist to see if your albums are listed in there.

You could also try unsetting the auto detect feature (bottom of server prefs -> behaviour), and doing a complete rescan.
