View Full Version : Componist used as artist

I have found out that if an existing artist in my medialibrary is listed as 'componist' in a song that is not of that artist, it will still be displayed if I check in my duet under that artist. This might be a little crytic, here is an example.

I have the album of Mick Hucknall - Tribute To Bobby
I also have the album Simply Red - Greatest Hits.

Half of the songs of Greatest Hits have Mick Hucknall as componist (though the artist is Simply Red).. and these songs are listed under artist Mick Hucknall (and ofcourse also under Simply Red).

Is there a way to prevent this (instead of deleting componist tags).

Hi Loek,

In the Squeezebox settings, on the tab page My Music, check the settings for Composer, Conductor, and Band Orchestra. Are any of the options ticked? If they are, untick them, and I believe you have to do a rescan of your library.

This should solve your issue.

hey thanks for taking the time to post a reply. I have checked those settings, but the checkboxes were already all unchecked..
