Hi,

I've been ripping quite a few DTS DVD's successfully to WAV files. With MediaMonkey it is possible to tag those WAV files. All the tagged information is visible with SqueezeCenter, except for year tag. The SqueezeCenter version I'm using currently is: "SqueezeCenter-versie: 7.1 - 19252 @ Wed Apr 30 00:26:21 PDT 2008 - Debian - NL - utf8".
Hopefully there's a solution.

If you want to tag stuff use FLAC or similar lossless formats which have proper tagging, WAVs don't use tags, they have a header but that's it.

WAV files can't be tagged. Period.

What they can have is RIF WAV headers applied to them to include data. SqueezeCenter can handle RIF WAV headers, but only some very limited ones. This was added to better accomodate former Audiotron users, and actually it might be an un-documented feature, it certainally isn't well known.
