The following output shows that several songs should be appearing under Madonna/Evita, and yet only one is.  Huh?

This may be way off so feel free to ignore, but in 5.4.1 when tracks have identical tags, only one will show up even though they are unique files. I know nothing of FLAC, nor of 6.2.x, but I don't see a TITLE in your output below. Could it be that SlimServer sees these as identical ALBUM and ARTIST are the same but no TITLE? Can you add a TITLE tag? If not, I think there is a setting in the server about "tag guessing." Perhaps setting that to guess the TITLE would help.

What version of SlimServer are you using? Why don't you supply a metaflac
dump of a single track that is being mis-labeled -- that would probably be
more useful than a partial dump of 20 tracks.

I don't have any particular skill with flac, but is there a reason that there's no track 1 on any of your lists ? Or is that the track that is coming up correctly, and you've only logged the misfiled ones ?

Michael Haan

There is - its:



Requiem for Evita.flac:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; comment[3]: TrackNumber=1



The only one that shows up is 10.

What's more odd, tracks 1 and 2 (and only those), appear under Various Artists/Evita.

This sort of thing happens to me fairly often (maybe every time that I add
music to an existing artist?). I usually get a second listing for that
artist, but I've had your problem too.

Anyway, wiping the database and rebuilding always fixes it for me.
