View Full Version : Selecting Music by Artist

Hi, I bought a Boom at Christmas (great decision) and encoded all my music collection into FLAC format. My problem is that I usually select by artist but the small screen on the Boom makes this a bit awkward. For example, if I select The Eagles, I might find that the first two albums listed are The Best Of The Eagles and The Best Of The Greatest Love Songs. I find myself selecting the latter by mistake (a compilation album that only has one Eagles track).
Is there any way to ensure that various artists albums don't appear when I am viewing a list by artist. Alternatively, is there a creative way to send these albums to the bottom of the listing - I tried placing a * before the album name (on mp3tag) but that didn't work

Server Settings > My Music > Compilations > uncheck "List compilation albums under each artist"

Not sure if changing this setting requires a library rescan.
