Hello,

I'd like to vote for the support of ID3 tag "TIT1" (aka Content group
description, see here: http://www.id3.org/id3v2.3.0.html#TIT1) in
SlimServer. This tag (iTunes refers to it as "Grouping") is used mainly
for classical music.

I don't need to search by this tag, I'd only like to use it in "Server
Settings > Formatting" so it can be displayed on the Squeezebox while
playing a song.

Thanks to anybody who is willing to support my quest or - better still -
cares to implement it in an upcoming version of Slimserver (sorry, but I
can't do it myself).

Alexander.

There's a bit of interest for better support for classical and opera music
in slimserver. I think now is a good time to post a first take on
ideal tag support for classical music:

Purpose id3v2.4 vorbis/ape example
-------
Lead Artist TPE1 COMPOSER Bach, J.S.
Album TALB ALBUM Complete Brandenburg Concertos
Title TIT1 TITLE Brandenburg Concerto (no 1???)
Comments COMM COMMENT
Subgenre ? TYPE Baroque
Year of recording TYER DATE 1960
Track Number TRCK TRACKNUMBER 1
Opus or other Number TIT3 OPUS 16, BWV 1000, K. 400
Composer TCOM COMPOSER Bach, J.S.
Arranger ? ARRANGER Ravel
Producer ? PRODUCER
Lyricist TEXT LYRICIST Puccini
Conductor TPE3 CONDUCTOR Karajan
Performer TMCL PERFORMER Perahia / Piano
Orchestra / Choir TPE2 ENSEMBLE LSO / John Alldrich Choir
Record Label ? LABEL Chandos
ISBN/catalog no ? ISBN ...
Part of a set TIT2 PART Allegro
Genre TCON GENRE Classical
Recording Location ? LOCATION St. Paul's Cathedral
Source Media TMED SOURCEMEDIA CD/DD (from id3v2 spec)

Custom tags are allowed in id3v2.4 - if there aren't tags suitable for
these fields we could devise our own.

Thoughts? I may post this information in an RFE on bugs.slimdevices.com so
that we don't lose track of any ideas.

thanks
