Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, I couldn't see any threads for it.

I've just started using Custom Browse, and was hoping to get it to arrange my music as follows:

Artist->Album->Disc->Track

If on a multi-disc set, but I'm struggling to get it to do it. Has anyone else tried this, or got it working?

Thanks

Nick

It should be possible but it will require some special handling.

The problematic part is that I'm guessing that you only want the disc level if the album have multiple discs ?

One requirement is that you have enabled the SqueezeCenter setting: "Thread multi-disc sets as a single album". Without this setting, you will get duplicate album entries.

You will need duplicate <menu> elements that lists track, one should look as the default one but have a filter to only show tracks if there are a single disk. The other one should list disks but only if there are multiple disks and it should have a sub <menu> element that lists tracks on the disk selected. The duplicate <menu> elements is somewhat similar to how the various artists handling works in the artists menu.

I don't have the time to give you an exact XML at the moment, but if you get it to work partly and post what you have done it's a bit easier to help.
