View Full Version : (another) VA duplicate index entry problem

I've been using Slim since almost the start and been very happy, but ran into problems with 6.3 and even more so with 6.5 (which was so unstable that my Significant Other reverted to CD's). I have noticed (also happened on 6.5 and 6.51) that it duplicates Album names when I browse Albums.

I have Moodlogic and MusicIP (MM) installed. All VA albums have the compilation tag set. I have selected to 'group compilation albums together' in behaviour settings. My albums are stored in \Various\Album name\trackno-title.mp3. I use Tag&Rename to manage tags, have no unicode.

In some instances, the Tag Album name does not exactly match the Folder Album name (capitalisation or similar). In this instance, if a track is matched in Moodlogic, the Album title comes from the folder name, but if the track is not listed in Moodlogic, then the album name comes from the Tag. As a consequence, I get tracks from Moodlogic in one album title, and tracks not in moodlogic under another album title.

On another album (with no Moodlogic entries but some musicip) the whole compilation is listed correctly against the album with no mm indicator, but then there is a duplicate album name (with mm indicator) for each track that is in MusicIP.

Can anyone explain this, or how I might get rid of the duplicates.

Upgrading to 6.51 is to be avoided - I wasted 3 weeks of my life on that already - , and with 13k tracks, continually re-building the index is tedious..

I've seen various people reporting problems with how compilation albums are
handled. I highly recommend you open a bug:

http://bugs.slimdevices.com/

I think that is the best way to make sure that these problems are
investigated and addressed.
