Hi all you flac-ers

I have changed my convert.conf file to rem out the default FLAC lines and
instate the:
flc mp3 * *
[flac] -dcs --skip=$START$ --until=$END$ $FILE$ | [lame] --resample
4100 --silent -q 9 -b $BITRATE$ - -

lines both at line 56 & 57 and 84 & 85. All seems well.

I have changed my music folder to be just a folder with a FLAC and a CUE
file in. My Cue file has an entry for each track as I would expect:

PERFORMER "Radiobed"
TITLE "Pablo Honey FLAC"
FILE "CDImage.flac" WAVE
TRACK 01 AUDIO
TITLE "You"
PERFORMER "Radiobeds"
INDEX 00 00:00:00
INDEX 01 00:00:33
TRACK 02 AUDIO
TITLE "Creepy"
PERFORMER "Radiobeds"
INDEX 00 03:28:63
INDEX 01 03:29:08
...snip

As you may notice, I've changed it a little. The reason I did this was that
despite the scan log looking OK:

etc etc

I get Radiohead listed as an Artist, I get Pablo Honey listed as an album,
and I get track 2.Creep listed as a song. None of the other songs show up,
and the changes I made manually to the cue file don't enter the list,
despite a wipe cache.

Any idea how to get the correct tracklisting?

Thanks

John

Just a quick thought - you might want to check your flac file and remove
any track metadata in it. When you are using cue sheets it is usually
less confusing to leave the original music file clear of track/album
metadata. The server does not know (yet) to ignore metadata in a file
referenced by a cue file.

hope this helps.
