EDIT: PARDON MY STUPIDITY!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a few glasses of wine before I did my rescan and just now realized that the artists are displayed properly...e.g., I looked under "M" and found Shawn Mullins. I presumed the display would show "Mullins, Shawn" but now I realize the artist can be located via the last name but is shown on the display as First Name Last Name. I'll go crawl back under a rock now.

Sorry about that--Squeezebox Rocks!

*******************
I just finished retagging my music by adding the artistsort tag to my files with mp3tag. My music is primarily FLAC with a few mp3's.

After a clear and rescan the artists are still shown in the browser and player as First Name Last Name (Neil Young) rather than via the artistsort tag of Last Name, First Name (Young, Neil).

I'm using Windows XP-Pro and SS 6.3.1.

Is there something I'm missing?

artist sort is supposed to be for sorting only. the displayed name is
still the artist tag.
are they showing up ordered by last name?

If you want them displayed as Young, Neil you should change the artist
tags.

No the display if fine as is. I'm pleased to finally be able to access artists by last name, the same way I file my CDs.
