View Full Version : artist tags = composer tags?

Hello -
Just scanned in my database and was surprised to see that several artist
tags were overriden by the composer tag. e.g. the song, "Under a Blood Red
Sky" has artist=U2, composer="Adam Clayton, Bono, etc." When I browse by
Artist this song is listed under "Adam Clayton, Bono, etc." instead of "U2".
Is there a setting I should set? While the composer info is good, I'd
prefer it to be a simple artist entry.

The strange thing is that this behavior is not consistent, in that in some
songs the composer tag doesn't seem to override.


(Running SlimServer 5.1)

Thanks,
Mike Beranek

Ah ha. Solved. Composer Server Setting is now "off".
